COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Malty nose of roast and some lighter notes of caramels and dark fruits, some hoppy notes as well - lightly earthy and floral. Pours dark brown with a nice creamy off whie head, sticky sheets of lace. Nice looking stuff. Roast, dark malts, some darker malt sweetness shows up, nice floral hop finish with more solid roast notes. A touch of alcohol here and there, mildly earthy and dry. Some light sugary sweetness shows up in the finish with light vanilla flavors as well.

jbruner (4734) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours a hazy brown from the bottle with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit and caramel, hint of fruit and grass. Taste follows, almost like a scotch ale sweetness with a bit of boozy burn and hints of grass. Decent, dry finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Draught. Dark golden color, slightly hazy. Bubbly white head that laced the glass. Estery banana nose with some cloves. These characteristics come out again in the flavor and mix well with a cream and spice undertones. Reminded me more of a Belgian abbey ale than an English strong ale.
