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 caramel and nutty chocolate. The toffee and chocolate also come through on the palate along with hints of red fruits, all balanced by a smooth bitterness. A traditional speciality winter warmer with flavours of fruit, malt, roast grain, and a hint of caramel.

What's the story?

Old Ale is based on one of Adnams' oldest beer recipes which dates back to to 1890. It was crowned Champion Beer of East Anglia 2013 by Camra.
