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!)

Bottle from Bert's
Slightly hazy golden amber color with a decent sized long lasting off white head. Rich caramel notes with plenty of apple-y berry fruitiness. Sweet, kind of thin, a bit bubbly, not horrible, but probably not something I'd seek out again.
