COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
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.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel and grassy hops. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Amber gold, clear, with medium off-white head. Grassy hops aroma, hints of grapefruit. The taste is toasted malty, caramel toffee with a dry finish.

Giochaurand (186) - FINLAND - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear orange with medium head. Aroma is malts, honey, hops and fruits. Taste is fruity, malty and orangy. Pretty much an average English ale.

martjoobolut (1684) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Ok hoppy slightly spicy brew, but lacks real character.

DerJontte (19) - FINLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Quite basic IPA. Not much bitterness and looks pretty much like a normal finnish lager.

borre_m (707) - NORWAY - AUG 17, 2015
Pours clear golden. Aroma is a little malty, not your american ipa. Taste is balanced. A nice hop profile, balanced.

You need a better sense of smell and and refined palate than I have to get much out of this. Too subtle but very drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50cl bottle shared at our holiday home in France. Clear golden with a medium white soapy head. Light to medium body with ditto carbonation. Subtle sweet and bitter tones. Citrus, tropical fruits, pine, grain and yeast. An ok IPA.
