Our Old Monkeyshine Ale is an exceptional example of a true, traditional-style English Pub beer. Nimbus Old Monkeyshine Ale is medium bodied and possesses a distinct, dark roasted flavor. Its sweet malty taste is derived from liberal use of seven varieties of specialty malts and a touch of brown sugar. Our Old Monkeyshine Ale is dark in color, beginning with a slight caramel malt overtone and rounded with a relatively dry finish from its English Kent Goldings hops. The hops aroma is mildly subdued and the bitterness is just enough to balance the profile of this beer. Nimbus Old Monkeyshine Ale is a true premium ale and is priced accordingly. We’re so proud of this beer for its body, taste, alcohol content and drinking enjoyment, it may just become our signature beer. Be warned: its wonderful malty sweetness camouflages the 8.0% alcohol by volume content. It’s a winner!

Bottle. Dark brown color. Aroma of malt, smokey ham and chocolate. Taste has lots of iron and malt, with some smokeyness as well. Smells better than it tastes. Bummer.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is toasty with some bread coming through. Taste is also toasty with a nice crisp bite to it. Decent beer, but nothing spectacular.

Sarlacc83 (1540) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Tap at OBF A: Reddish brown with purple outlines. Creme colored head and some lacing. N: Toffee, pecan, dark fruit, vanilla and caramel. Touch of spruce and earth. Coffee and tobacco. T: Sweet with a rough edge of bitterness. M: Medium body, light stickiness, a touch of alcohol. O: A good malty beer. The balancing act is deftly managed, and I’m glad to have tried this. Doesn’t strike me with any immediate comparisons, however.
