An English "Old Ale" called Distillery Ale brewed to celebrate the opening of our distillery. It is a bright copper colour (just like the still) from the English floor malt as well as the caramel and chocolate malt and it is fermented with English Ale yeast to give it a nice light apple/pear fruitiness. It has a profound amount of aroma hops in it to emulate the classic beer of this style from back when the Distillery District started up in the early 1800’s.

Trying to create an old style English ale. Cloudy and unfiltered, little aroma, slightly metallic, thin body and palate. Overall very bland and disappointing.

Poured a cloudy brown with a slightly off-colour head. Bready, chocolatey, fruity/flowery. It’s ok, probably wouldn’t have again.

Wow, lots of foamy clingy head. Flowery scent. Rather bitter. Has some real bite. Not a fan of that. Roasty and just a bit sweet for a minute but then the bitterness takes over. Sweetness is caramel like. Too much hops for me.

[5479-20130604] Tap. Mild grainy fruit aroma. Clear, golden orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Mildly bitter fruity grains flavour. Medium body. Good, simple. (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0

Tap at the brewery. Pours murky brown with an off white head. Aroma is brow bread. Light to medium body, medium to full carbonation. Caramel, orange, lemon, toast... Simple, but OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. This beer feels stronger than it is. From the name to the taste. Big caramel and bread taste, with some hints of chocolate. You also taste the yeast too with some fruitiness in there. Has a good amount of carbonation a bit of bite. A nice surprise that comes in a 6 pack taster pack.

pushkinwow (2273) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Light murky copper with a beige head. Nice grainy profile with some caramel, light toffee, sweet, some fruit. High carbonation, mild body, inoffensive although a little too sweet and bubbly for my liking.

Pours a clear copper with a tiny white ring of head. Aroma is caramel, nutty, toffee, moderate fruity esters, grassy and a bit earthy. Flavour is caramel, nutty, mild chocolate, grass, earthy, fruity esters, a mild bitterness, and a touch of wood notes. Kinda thin for the style.

Reimer96 (1544) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours a clear amber color with a small light brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of caramel, sweet pale malts, grassy hops and earth. Taste is a bit thin... Nice creamy mouthfeel but a bit light for an old ale with hints of caramel, toffee, grass and some dirt.

YanIpa (144) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
Ambré, couleur cuivre avec un petit col. Arôme de ’pale malt’. Le goût est terreux, mais doux. Une finition sec et légèrement amer. Houblon Goldings. Saveur similaire a une ’barley wine’, trés balancé...
