This Dark English ale is fashioned after British "Old Ales" and has been a seasonal favorite here for several years. A healthy dose of caramel malts (light and dark) contribute a deep red color that's tempered with just a touch of roasted barley. All of this also combines to make a VERY full bodied beer. To balance all of the malts, we add a healthy dose of hops. We use Simcoe hops for bittering, and Ahtanums for aroma hops and for dry hopping.
