This Coalition Ale based on the classic Old ale stylw was brewed on 25 February 2009 when the Thornbridge brewing team were joined by Mark Tranter from Dark Star Brewing in Sussex. Matured for almost two years and now ready to be sipped and enjoyed - cheers!
This unfiltered orange-hued Ale pours with a fine white head. The aroma offers notes of sandalwood and honey. In the mouth it has a soft quality but overall it’s dry with a mouth-coating bitterness and notes of honey and oriental resin. The finish has a subtle bitterness reminiscent of liquorice root.
Malts: Maris Otter Pale Ale and Crystal
Hops: Atlas, Aurora and Liberty.
Brewed February 2009 and bottled October 2010.
