Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 11-03-2001

Brewed in the style of an English Olde Ale, this ale balances the sweet heady aroma of spruce tips with the clean crisp finish of noble hops. Its malty richness is complemented by the warming sensation of alcohol.

Pours with a small, white head. Dark amber in color, with a slight murkiness to it. Although it is not a pale ale, it has a pale ale smell with a pale ale taste, just not as citrusy and hoppy as a pale ale. Overall, an above average ale.
