Notes/Commercial Description:
“Ten Penny Ale,” our flagship brew is a smooth, amber-hued mellow version of a Scottish Ale. It’s a good “session ale” and was awarded “Hartford’s Best Microbrew” for 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2009 by The Hartford Advocate’s Readers Poll. This beer is available year-round at your local bar or favorite beer store.

Why “Ten Penny?” My grandfather used to say “You can get a good beer for a nickel, but a really good beer will cost you ten pennies!” (Motto: Work hard, drink well… Ten Penny Ale!)

I have had growlers of this here in RI that were spoiled (see review above), but this is as delicious as I remember it to be! When I have brought this to parties - and it is fresh/unspoiled - it has always been a favorite among a fairly sophisticated group of beer drinkers.

Light, slightly citrus, but not watery flavor with the yeastiness I expect fresh beer to have. Goes down easily.
