Style: English Old Ale / Strong Ale
ABV: 7.6%
Color: Amber

Old ale is probably the strongest beer style that doesn't need long aging in order to taste good.  That's because it's well-balanced to avoid harshness when young.  Like all strong beers, however, it does improve with age.  Our "Thomas Nonsense!" recipe kit is very strong and medium-full bodied.  The color is deep copper to brown.  Malt characteristics are quite strong, and balanced by generous hop additions.  As it ages, these flavors marry... they blend and mellow each other.  Thomas Nonsense! contains not only British yeast strain, British hops, and British malt extract, but also two different British sugars.  The special sugars give Thomas Nonsense! the characteristic vinous (sherry or cognac-like) flavor of old ales.
