Old Boy (Classic Ale) – Parallel 49 Brewing (Dec 5, 2014)

Beer Advent Calendar 2014

From East Vancouver’s Parallel 49 Brewing comes their “Old Boy (Classic Ale)’.  This beer pours a deep amber almost brown colour with a very small tan head.  Sniffing the beer you will get hints of caramel, malts, toffee, chocolate and a fruity finish.  Your first sip will be of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, coffee, raisins, nuts and a finish of mild hops.  Your subsequent sips will be just as good don’t you worry.  This is a very good baseline brown ale and is one I will pick up from time to time.  The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 27.

Commercial Description:  Spawned from the English Brown Ale, this strongly flavoured classic ale has notes of caramel and chocolate character, which balances the slight hop bitterness and finish.
