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!

Thanks turdferguson for sharing. Pours a translucent dark copper with a fizzy light tan head. The nose is musty, old paper, malty, kind of sweet. The flavor is old and papery, musty, earthy, basement, not too hot.

Poured a clear chestnut color with a thin light beige head. Lightly roasted aroma. Maybe even a touch of cigarette ash. Also toffee and light hop. Lightly roasted flavor otherwise bland. Semi-dry finish. Some butterscotch noticed as it warmed.

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.

Cybercat (4166) - Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Aroma is mainly hoppy and woody, not strong but inviting. It pours a clear umber with a thick, fine-bubbled wheat head. Malty flavor has notes of hops, caramel and cloves. Texture has decent body and fizz. In the mood for some monkeyshines? Here dey iz!

FlacoAlto (4006) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2003
This beer is a deep amber color. It is fairly clear with just a hint of chill haze. It smell malty sweet with a bit of fruitiness in the nose. Nice full bodied with a malty expression. This beer tenderly coats your mouth. This is a very well balanced beer, as an English expression of a strong ale should be. There is a hint of hop flavor that helps to carry the maltiness of this brew.

12oz bottle. pours murky reddish brown with biege head. aroma notes of dough, toasted biscuit, yeast, some raisins, and mild chocolate. flavor is very yeasty and doughy with some dark fruits. a dry and yeasty finish. watery body. defines mediocrity.

DiarmaidBHK (3821) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle from BevMo Tucson. Pours dark brown with a thin brown head which disappears quickly. Not much on the nose. Big malty sweetness on the tongue. Hides it alcohol well. Not particularly memorable.
