Review #21

Beer: American Ale
Beersperts: Scott B, Mark S, Adam H
Beerspert Panel Rating: 6.7

Notes from the brewery:
An American-style ale that reserves the right to be different. A bit lighter in body, Old Court provides a citrusy hop aroma and caramel finish.

ABV: 6.8%
IBU: 28
CAL (12 oz.):

Notes from the Beersperts:
Scott B:
It’s a carmelly flavor and a nutty smell. When you drink it it’s interesting. It actually leaves your mouth a little drier then when you had the first taste and kind of leaves you wanting for a little bit more.  You could probably have it with anything. I really like it. It’s a good beer and I would probably drink it any day of the week if it was available. I think it’s got a high drinkability.
Rating: 7

Mark S:
I completely agree about leaving your mouth a little dry, always wanting to go back for more. To me it leaves a pretty good drinkability factor. I mean I wouldn’t put it up there with Bud Light drinkability so to speak, but for me, I would definitely go back and have another.  Definitely a session beer. It’s not very filling. The carbonation doesn’t leave you with that really full feeling in your belly. Definitely something where you could sit and have 4 or 5 and not feel too bad about it.
Rating: 6

Adam H:
You can smell the fruit aspect to it and then you get that citrus toward the back of your throat I get that citrus to it along with the carmel and the hoppiness. I think this is again a really drinkable beer. I think you could sit around. You would probably get wasted because of the 6 percent ABV.  It leaves a flavor in your mouth that you want to drink some more.
