Beer Style: Strong Ale Family

Northern Brewer’s New Old Ale

FREE

Old ale has a caramel/nutty malt character with toffee-like,roasty overtones. It is full bodied with a smooth malty-sweet finish.The oats help build a creamy, mouth-filling body and hold a dense tan head atop the deep reddish-brown beer. The addition of dark candi sugar boosts the gravity, while adding a rich, rum-like dimension to thecomplex flavor profile.
