Nelson's Column is an Old English Ale. Brimful of rich, ripe fruit. Starts slightly malty and finishes smooth and hoppy. "A truly monumental beer".

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2009
Deep golden orange coloured body with a light amber tint and a thinnish white head. Aroma of bitter english hops, malt, caramel and a twinge of pit fruits. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hops up front with a nice sweetness, a touch of malt bitterness all with a good hoppy finish. Refreshing! Overall, a good beer, definitely worth trying, especially if you can find it on cask. I sampled this pint on cask at The Rake in London, England on 10-March-2008.

plum, yeast, caramels, malts... a little too sweet for me and the finish was otherwise a bit flat. could have done with some more bitter balancing.

BCA. Amber coloured with a decent, off-white head. Aroma of chocolate malts, red fruit and orange hops. Flavour was sweet, with some chewy malts, more chocolate, spice and red fruit, before a short bitter finish. Good.
