3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the bottle, a clear amber with a frothy head. A very rich and spicy aroma. The flavour is packed with fruity and yeasty flavours - a taste explosion - and the palate is left with a enjoyable tingly feeling.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dont know how this can be classed as an old ale-much more of a bitter.Poured with a medium head and left no lacing.
Gentle, easy to drink but otherwise nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, from Sainsburys. Copper bronze, lasting white head and moderate condition. Solid earthy maltiness in the nose with hints of caramel and gentle oakiness, initial sweet woody fruitiness in the mouth with some smokiness and full bodied caramel malt flavours balanced by a gentle peppery hop note. Finish is long and quite dry with hints of woodsmoke and caramel. All round a pretty decent beer, I hope Greene King don’t ruin it.
