2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper color. Light tan head disapates quickly. Aroma of fresh cut wood, floral hops. Taste is straight up bitter. Seems really unbalanced. Different, yet I don’t drink many old ales to compare. Not my thing.

a different smell—sweet leather? Sawdust & caramel, & i don’t mean either negatively. The off white head dies quickly, the slightest haze in the amber. lighter on the tongue than expected. Caramel, orange, wheat bread, alcohol. Sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown semi-transparent body with some head and some lacing. Aroma of cocoa and hops, though not a prominent aroma. Taste is quite bitter and roast. A bit unusual for an old ale- certainly not a traditional british style old ale anyway. Abv well masked. Enjoyable but nothing too interesting here really.

Light copper point into snifter. Creamy off white head. Good balance of caramel maltiness with citrus and pine notes. A winter IPA, could use a higher ABV.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a clear copper color with a thick creamy off white head that leaves lots of lacing. the aroma is floral hops and bread. you can also pick up some mild spices but they are more prevalent in the taste. the taste also consists of floral hops. there is quite a bit of bitterness but not overpowering. i would never guess this beer is 7% abv because it is such an easy drinker.

Draft. This is much lighter than other old ales i have tried. It has a nice depth of flavor though.
