No idea about the style.
This ale was brewed from recipes taken from the Tudor age and incorporates English malts, honey and sage. The recipe should yield a beer with subtle malt tones and hints of caramel and herbs.
Starts out oaky with spices and then moves all into spices. Ends with card core spices. A dose of rosemary.
Mouthfeel: Still and flat. Enjoyable at first and then the spice kicks in. Light to medium bodied.
I liked this beer because it was flat and oaky at first. The spices were faint. Then, the spices dominated.
Serving type: cask

This Tudor-style ale was served at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts for a Tudor Keg Party. To be clear, there were two different casks with slightly different variations in flavor: one cask was a sage ale and the other was a rye ale.
The sage cask smelled sweetly of honey, sage and citrus. It had a peppery, spicy nose and was a cloudy rich copper in colour. Tasted peppery with a hint of lemon; sage and savory spices detected.
The rye ale was pretty much the same as the sage ale cask, but had an additional rye smell and taste, and had no spices or lemon.
Both ales had little to no carbonation and had a slimey mouth coat to them. If anything, the sage ale was more buttery and the rye ale felt thicker. Despite texture, flavors were clean with only a minor aftertaste.
Would I buy this beer again? It was a one time release and won't likely be recreated. Regardless, I probably would not buy this beer again.
