Our Old Monkeyshine Ale is an exceptional example of a true, traditional-style English Pub beer. Nimbus Old Monkeyshine Ale is medium bodied and possesses a distinct, dark roasted flavor. Its sweet malty taste is derived from liberal use of seven varieties of specialty malts and a touch of brown sugar. Our Old Monkeyshine Ale is dark in color, beginning with a slight caramel malt overtone and rounded with a relatively dry finish from its English Kent Goldings hops. The hops aroma is mildly subdued and the bitterness is just enough to balance the profile of this beer. Nimbus Old Monkeyshine Ale is a true premium ale and is priced accordingly. We’re so proud of this beer for its body, taste, alcohol content and drinking enjoyment, it may just become our signature beer. Be warned: its wonderful malty sweetness camouflages the 8.0% alcohol by volume content. It’s a winner!

Westmeister's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Growler. Pours dark brown with red edges and an off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, muddled earthiness, dark fruits. Taste is the same, but with a candy like flavor as well. Alcohol is hidden. Strange brew though, as the combo of flavors and scents just didn’t work particullary well for me.

JStax (7181) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Bottle shared. Clear dark brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has oaly vanilla notes. Hints of fudge and toffee in the taste. Sweet and roasty as well. Big body and medium carbonation.

12 oz bottle. I did not enjoy this beer at all. A lot of off flavors that did not mix well.

MarcoDL (5385) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown color. Aroma of malt, smokey ham and chocolate. Taste has lots of iron and malt, with some smokeyness as well. Smells better than it tastes. Bummer.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is toasty with some bread coming through. Taste is also toasty with a nice crisp bite to it. Decent beer, but nothing spectacular.

ajnepple (7089) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2014
12 oz bottle from Total Wine & More - Gilbert, AZ. Darker brown and clear appearance with a light tan head. Dark malts, molasses, touch of dark fruits, toasted grains, roast, bitter chocolate, light toffee/caramel and mild earthy hops. Medium to full body with a mildly bittersweet finish. Solid.
