Old School is a very good light Pale Ale.
The kind of beer I’d happily drink all evening.
It’s full of flavour but light enough to not make your head hurt next morning.
It pours a golden orange and smells sweet and crisp, all caramel and peaches, apples and sultanas.
There’s a good malty biscuit, well baked and bran rich that sits right in the centre of Old School, and it’s smothered in heather honey and pear juice, along with just a few brandy snap crumbs that give a very nice rich burned sugar bitter sweetness at the edges.
The hops are elderflower water, chamomile tea and rain drenched hedges, fresh and green and pithy, and the finish is a moreish blend of sticky toffee and bitter dry lawn clippings and lemon rind.
I only wish I had more than one bottle.
