The first and only perennial offering in our Cooper’s Series of limited batch beers. Mayflower Thanksgiving Ale is an inspired blend of two brewing styles: American Strong Ale and English Old Ale. Aged on American white oak, this full-bodied brew warms the soul with hints of caramel, vanilla and spicy nuts. The perfect beverage for our favorite holiday.

Poured a dark tea color in a snifter. 1/2F head.

The aroma is excellent: sweet, fruit, toffee, and fig.

Taste: fruit and fig with a nicely bitter alcohol finish-classic Old Ale.

The alcohol finish mellows with warming as fruit and raisins in the taste become more pronounced.

Better served on the warmer side to bring out the aromatics and dampen the alcoholic finish.
The style seems more of an Old Ale than a combo of Strong ale and Old Ale. A classic taste and worth checking out. I will try to find another bottle.
