Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
In Britain, what started out as young or “mild” dark ale was once aged in oak barrels to make something that was likely similar to sour brown ales of East Flanders. Using a similar base recipe to Commercial Suicide Dark Mild, Ol’ Oi! is Jester King’s tribute to that tradition.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a jester king stemmed glass. Acquired in a trade from Camille, thanks!

Appearance - pours a deep muddy brown body with amber highlights. A thick, frothy, cloudy off white head rises and falls slowly to leave thick lacing and retention foam. Very inviting .

Smell - Tart aromas, acidic citrus, sour apple, slight toffee, caramel, leathery aromas in the background.

Taste - upfront the acidity hits the tongue right away - sour lactic , citrusy tartness, sour apple, astringent citrus rind. Up next come the brown ale characteristics - toffee, caramel, nuttiness, some butterscotch. The finish exhibits some of the barrel notes - wood and leathery aftertaste.

Mouthfeel -medium light body, medium carbonation. Easy drinker.

Overall I was very impressed with this lesser known JK sour - amazingly complex and tasty, and I really liked how the brown ale characteristics mingled with the other flavors.
