Limited Release. As with every year’s Laurelwood Limited Release, the beer you are now holding is very special, very limited and very delicious. We’ve created an ale that’s perfect for sharing with friends and family or whomever you choose. While we suppose you could keep it all to yourself, we’ve always believed, "A shared beer is a better beer." Anyway you savor it, we think you’ll find Olde Reliable a wholly satisfying beer experience. Please keep refrigerated.

The 20th beer tasted in a 28 beer blind BW tasting. Poured a slightly hazed deep amber color with a small creamy off-white head. Sweet fruit malt with notes of cherry and light alcohol. Fruity flavor with phenolic smoke. Light tart fruit on the finish. Light to medium body.

1 liter flip-top bottle. This reddish copper beer poured with a decent off-white head that dissipated quickly. The flavor is initially sweet and malty, but finishes dry and slightly harsh with a warm alcohol sensation. I greatly enjoyed trying this well-crafted beer with a limited distribution. Thanks for sharing, Bill.

Bottle shared with Marcus. Color is reddish tinged amber with a reluctant (or should it be shy) white head. Warm caramel aroma. Near medium body with mild, surprisingly, carbonation - it prickles the tongue. Very dry for the style - almost astringent. There’s oak in this. Caramel and hint of mild stone fruits. The finish is rather light.
