COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned for maximum flavor and shelf life, Augustinian Ale is one of Britain’s undiscovered treasures. NOTE: This is ONLY available bottled, almost exclusively for export to the United States. It is an entirely different beer to the one available from cask (and due to be released bottle conditioned) at 4.5% in the UK and elsewhere. The US importer who commissioned the beer liked the name Augustinian which was already in use for a cask bitter, so Nethergate made two different beers with the same name. The cask UK Augustinian Ale has AD1248 in small lettering on the pumpclip and is listed separately here.
Hoppy, bitter and spiced with coriander seeds, this pale ale is, to say the least, very distinctive.

Belgik (72) - Sterrebeek, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2001
Foamy light amber, remarkable nose of (brown soap?). Foamy in the mouth, very bitter. Maybe I rate this wrong because I’m not used to the style!

Oakes (12612) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2001
Light copper; orangey, lemon aroma. The aroma could easily be mistaken for lemon dish detergent, but there really isn’t any soapiness, it’s just that strong in the lemon. Crisp, floral, spicy, ale; dry, harshly coriander finish.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2001
Huge aroma: pine/citrus fruit. Disappointing in the body, strongly hopped.

Nice strongly hoppy ale.
