A 500ml bottle with a BB of March 2012, so it's just out of date. The story on the label is that this ale is based on a 17th century recipe from Ripley castle, and is named after 'Trooper Jane', one of the castle's famous inhabitants. Includes barley, wheat and oats.
Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear coppery-amber colour with low carbonation. Forms a small off-white head of foam that lasts for a minute or two before dissipating. Aroma of sweet caramel malt with hints of brown sugar and stewed hops.
Tastes of caramel malt with a mild bitter finish. Slightly sweet. Notes of subtle roasted grain, brown sugar, fruity yeast and stewed hops. A faint dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and full-bodied, with a slight tingling from the carbonation. Aftertaste of sweet, grainy malt.
Tasty - this ale has a pleasing sweet malty character. The body is great; feels like your tongue is enveloped in velvet. Very drinkable, and the historical background makes it more interesting than most beers out there. Grab one if you come across it.

A 17th Century Ale?
This should be interesting.
A nice, amber colour, but with little head. Alcohol in the nose, with a bit of bittering hop smell. Maybe Fuggles? A nice balance between malt and hops in the taste, with a ester-fruity taste. Nice, medium mouthfeel with a nice smooth aftertaste.
