Old Empire is brewed using Optic malt, a subtle and paler grain that will allow other flavours to come through on the palate. Goldings and Fuggles hops are added to this brew, which is then late hopped with the American Cascade variety for extra hop strength.

0,5 pullo JKL Alko. Saippuainen vaahto, kirkas vaalean kuparin ruskea. Tuoksussa humalaa, hedelmää, sitrusta ja vähän karamellia, hiukan kukkaisuutta. Maussa vaaleaa mallasta, kitkeryyttä, humalaa. Jopa kuivan kitkerää.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with nice frothy white head. Mild malty aroma some caramel notes can be picked up too. The taste is slightly sweet and malty at first, followed by some bitterness and that unpleasant metallic aftertaste. Nothing speci8al really.
