Bottle from backlog notes. Pours a clear deep amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, lightly nutty, noticeable Maris Otter character, hints of fruit and a splash of general hop character, not much to get excited about.

Globe, CPH - amber pour with thin white head. Sweet malty aroma and taste, some faint dark fruit, light spice, slightly watery, but overall pretty decent.

Murky, caramel colors. Sweet nose, moderate palate somewhat oily. English, to be sure. (at Ale Jail Anniversary Party 2014) Niko100 (3012) - Chicago, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2014

bottle. deep copper with one finger head. malty with substantial breadiness. mild hop bitterness. flat flavor, rather boring. definitely not old-ale-like.

Pour is red/orange with a small white head. Aroma is of apple juice, perfume, coriander, and nutmeg. Taste is sharp, metallic, acidic, wheat, and light spice. BeerViking (5132) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle, deep red-brown with a beige head and a fruity, spicy and faintly winey nose. Dry and roasted-fruity body, then spicy bitter notes coming through. Wintery and more-ish. ReV2 (179) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
A Christmas present from 2012, consumed Christmas Eve 2013, BBE 31 October 2013. I’m not sure when it was 5% or an Old Ale, to me an ordinary 4.7% English bitter with an unbalanced hop melee. Nothing memorable here, just another beer living on past glories. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle (4.7% ABV, Maris Otter, Crystal and Wheat with just Golding hops) and served in nonic Imperial pint glass: Pours a nice coppery hue with a fading head and not much lace. Suppose to be an Olde Ale but really just a ever so slightly beefed up ordinary bitter. Nice EKG character, apple berry undertone and biscuity Maris Otter but the Crystal malt is sort of flabby and obtrusive. Bought it ’cause of the name honestly... not expecting much and still did not get what I expected which was an old ale which this is NOT!!!
