“It should be a warming beer of the type that is best drunk in half pints by a warm fire on a cold winter’s night.” – Michael Jackson (the Beer Hunter). Traditional English old ales are all about warm malt flavors. Supported with a healthy dose of bittering hops, this old ale is rich, smooth, with notes of biscuit, bread crust, and molasses. For a special treat age a few bottles for several months to a year – if you can void drinking them all first!
