Harveys Elizabethan Ale 1952-2012 (Bottle)


Brewed by Harveys
Lewes, England
Style: Barley Wine | Ratings: 4 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.5%
Bottle conditioned - Jubilee Edition.
Note: this is different to the normal Elizabethan.
An exact replica of the ’Coronation Ale’ brewed by Harveys Brewery in 1952 and marketed as Elizabethan Ale. In contrast to its modern counterpart, the original recipe includes flaked barley and black malt. This dark barley wine with its full rich malt character is well hopped with local Fuggle and Golding hops and is brewed in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The 1952 bottling is still drinking well 60 years on and an equal degree of longevity is anticipated with this 2012 bottling.
