Adnams Old Ale 4.1% abv available now

By Fergus Fitzgerald, also posted in News on

With the turning back of the clocks signalling the arrival of darker evenings and colder weather, we welcome the return of our traditional winter warmer Old Ale. Using one of Adnams' oldest recipes, this is a mild ale style beer brewed with East Anglian pale ale and Crystal malted barley and Boadicea hops. It's dark red brown in colour with an aroma of toffee and nutty chocolate. The toffee and chocolate also come through on the palette along with hints of red fruits, malt and roast grain, all balanced by a smooth bitterness. So whether you've just endured a bracing walk in the chilled winter air or spent the day wrestling the crowds whilst Christmas shopping, reward yourself with a pint of Old. Available from October to January on cask in selected outlets. Also available in mini-cask from Adnams Cellar & Kitchen Stores and online for a limited period.
