Our flagship brew, "Ten Penny Ale" is available in more and more restaurants, pubs and package stores in Central Connecticut, and the momentum is growing! "Ten Penny" is a light Scottish style ale, brewed with a secret recipe developed by Brewmaster Ray Ballard. We can't give you the recipe, but we can tell you that the finest fresh barley malts have been combined with a hint of hops from the Pacific northwest to produce a unique and universally drinkable ale.

very sweet malty aroma, kinda sugary mediocre grains flavor, some kind of hard to place off flavor. sub par.

Copper pour with fluffy white head. Aroma is caramel malt and spiciness. Flavor is a touch sour and funky. Two years old at least. Doesn’t adequate well at all.

Bottle from Bert’s Slightly hazy golden amber color with a decent sized long lasting off white head. Rich caramel notes with plenty of apple-y berry fruitiness. Sweet, kind of thin, a bit bubbly, not horrible, but probably not something I’d seek out again.

At the source: pours copper with a white head. Aroma is caramel and bread. Taste has a nice bitterness to it bit is mostlynice and sweet. Noce finish not too bad of a beer. I like it.

Clear copper pour with lasting, clingy off-white top. One of the strangest smelling beers I’ve encountered - intriguing though, with toast, earth and something resembling fruit. Flavor is similar, though malty with a fairly dry finish. Decent and interesting.

Growler shared by someone at Natifest (from notes). Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small off white head. The aroma was pretty weak having some herbals, tea, toasted bread. The flavor had the toasted bread, some herbal notes, tea, a hint of smoke. Not much going on here.

Old Burnside Brewing Company Ten Penny Ale. Growler, 50 W Naitfest ‘14 APPEARANCE: golden color, perfectly see-through. No head to speak of. NOSE: not much of anything. FLAVOR: very much a lager type flavor. It wants to be an ale, but I’m not feeling it. I feel a bit of the scotch flavor in it. But only a bit. NOTES: Honestly, this is not my favorite style (straight up ale, or scotch). This beer is ok, not awesome.

Thanks to John @ Natifest / Cincinnati OH --- Medium amber, solid rim head, thin streaks of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt that grows a little stronger in the palate, then adds light hops for solid balance in a lingering finish. A simple brew, but one that works well, particularly regarding the caramel malt.

64 oz. growler shared by John at Natifest - thanks again! A couple new CT breweries for me. Looks pretty light for the style, like the recent attempt at a Scottish ale by MadTree. Aroma of soap, tea, florals, toast, straw, and faint toasted sugar. Flavor of straw, toast, earth, and grains. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Drinks more like a blonde ale than a Scottish ale, based on my experience with the style. Just a straightforward, smooth-drinking ale without much going on.
