COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Nice strong brown ale. Dark amber color. Very sweet smelling. Extremely roasted and a nice touch of caramel malt sweetness. Very full bodied ale. Slight hop punch in the background. Very nice brown ale for those chilly nights.

Wowzers! This is great stuff. It has a distinct roasted malt aroma and a very light hop aroma. The taste is malty, roasted coffee-like and just downright good. It reminds me of some of the dopplebock beers I've had, but with a lighter body. Damn good beer.

Poured a dark ruby with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is plums, piney hops, a touch of caramel sweetness. Flavor is somewhat thin dark fruits, stale hops and metallic toffee. With chewier malts and American hops, I’d probably like this a lot more. But then it would probably be an ASA instead of an ESA, and it’s no coincidence that I like the former more than the latter. Still not a bad attempt.

Not bad. Not as sweet as normally prefer, but not too bitter, either. I would drink it again, but it wouldn’t be my first choice.

best beer I've ever had. This is a good strong English ale impression.Floral nose, sweet malt, caramel and quite fresh and pleasing to the senses.

Interesting taste warm with heavy hints of hops. Very malty with hints of chocolate. Nice dark color. Strong taste of alcohol, and a nice mouthfeel. Overall a very decent beer.

Dark in color with a small light head. Pretty much smells like it tastes, sweet with hints of toffee and caramel corn. A bit too sweet for my tastes, but I wouldn’t say it’s a bad beer.

this is the same as their No Evil I believe Originally only brewed for Zachary’s Pizza(great great pie here in the desert) and the brewery had it on mondays. Now they’re calling it No Evil and shipping it everywhere...definitely the best brewed in this state commercially.

Perfect amber coloring with slight white lacing. Taste of smooth nuts and brown sugar. Could never guess its 8%. Great pub beer!

Why is it called ’No Evil’? It’s a wonderfully wicked beer!!! The aroma and taste both had a complex blend of roasted, malty, smoky, coffee, maple syrup(?) mixture that was awesome!!! Too bad it is so strong....or else I would have had more!
