COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
British style "Old Ale". Deep red in color with tons of malt goodness! Look for toffee, caramel, raisin, brown sugar, and deep berry tones just to name a few. Some call these ales mini Barley Wines, try it with rich foods. Truly a food loverís beer.
Ed. note - Town Hall brewer believes this is more of an English Strong than an Old Ale.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours rich brown with a tiny white head. Sweet malt on the nose. Sweet flavor with some raisin and orange peel notes. Decent balance between hops and malt. Nice oily texture.

Dark red, nearly brown with a bit of an off-white head on top. Uninspiring aroma of some sweet malts. The flavor is very sweet with some caramel and brown sugar. Well hidden alcohol, a bit of hops in the finish. Not bad overall but it just wasnít something Iíd normally pick.

Forgot to copy the brewerís info this time...oopsy-daisy! And Andy said theyíd done this one before, but under a different name...I donít think so, canít find anything like it anywhere. In any case, it appeared out of the blue, with no fanfare when I visited Tuesday night, and now letís drink some! Deep magenta hue, slimmish head.... Sweetness in the nose, sweet, firm, distictly malty...dark fruits and minor caramel and toffee...a maltier affair, with plenty of British hops. Slick, good texture on the palate, toasty, caramel-y, then the mellow fruit, very sweet, but not too much so, well-balanced, indeed. Full-bodied, with plenty of trick and tickle on the tongue...a sweet and sassy affair...reminds me of Theakstonís Old Peculiar...not too strong, thick and malty, but terribly significant and dripping with flavor. Nearly candyish in the malty sweetness, I nearly think. King Caramel. So many good things going for it, itís tough not to love. Doesnít fit the season, but Iíve always got a hankering for a brew this good. I need to start a party, just to have an excuse to spread a beer this good around. Yum, yum, and once again, yum!

Dark ruby color with a very thin head. Weak aroma of alcohol and malt. Big flavor! Lots of molasses, brown sugar and fruit. Slightly bitter. Fruity finish with some chocolate. Friggin good!

On tap at the brewpub. Dark ruby color with a strong sweet nose. The aroma had a raisin characteristic. Sweet malt body with raisin undertones. Almost a session barleywine.
