Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

(512) FOUR is a classic English-style Strong Ale. The biscuity Maris Otter and caramelly Crystal malts contribute notes of toast, toffee, and dried fruits, which are perfectly balanced with a blend of authentic UK Fuggle and East Kent Golding hops. Dry-hopped with Northdown, (512) FOUR is a complex and satisfying ale.

On tap at Jack Mac's.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. I get a lot of toffee and sweet bread notes in the aroma, as well as a hint of some fruit. The flavor is very similar. There is a lot of malt in the flavor, with some nice sweetness from the toffee. I also get some grape notes, as well as some earth and a hint of grass. There is a light amount of bitterness coming through from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

The FOUR poured a hazy golden amber with a huge white head and great lacing. The aroma was caramel sweet and biscuity with a hint of orange or grape but not from hops more from the sweetness. The taste was a solid malt and toffee with more of the orange or grape fruitiness underneath. The FOUR had a nice bitter hoppy finish that lingered on my palate and was a pleasant surprise given the more malt forward aroma and taste. While I do not drink many English Strong Ales I found that I was really enjoying the FOUR. I think it was the bitter hoppy finish that really rounded out the toasted malty sweetness that kept me coming back for more. Another great beer from (512).
