Really interesting english strong ale. Pours beautiful medium brown with thin head. Nice toffee notes with a noticeably drier approach than most in this style. Very refreshing.

On tap at Flying Saucer Beerfeast. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thick mouthfeel with a sweet malt and caramel flavor with nice lingering dry finish. A good English strong ale from 512. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
This definitely looks the part of an Old Ale... it’s dark orange/brown in color with an off-
white head and minimal, slow carbonation. Great lacing! The nose reminds me of a pub
table, woody, earthy, grainy, and with the definitive characteristics of an ale vermented
with English yeast. In the mouth it has a hop flavor that’s much like dirt-covered soap
packaged in an old wooden chest. It’s full-bodied and, yes, dirty, with very little (if any)
residual sweetness. Toasted malts seem to make up most of the malt profile, and the
alcohol presence is indeterminable by the flavor. (512) did a really great job on making a
tasty, traditional, low-alcohol Old Ale. Not quite up to the standards of an anniversary
beer in my opinion, though.
