Brewed to a recipe believed to be over 500 years old, using well water, both pale and roasted malted barley, and English hops. Owd Rodger is a homage to an old style country ale with an explosion of rich fruit flavours followed by a dry, bitter-sweet finish. At 7.6% ABV it should be savoured in moderation. It is hard to better this classic Winter drink.

    Pours opaque chestnut with a fair buff head. Malty and fruity aroma invites a taste. Fruity, malty, caramel flavor is quite pleasing. Mouthfeel presents firm body and good fizz. Rodger dodger, a good one.

    500 ml capped bottle, as Marston's Owd Rodger. Poured in an english tulip pint a slight hazy rich burgundy coloured Old Ale with a generous two fingers tan creamy foamy head that had a very long retention and tons of micro bubbles. Soft carbonation. Good lacing. The aroma is roasted malts, toffee, ripe fruits, raisins, a touch of spices, licorice. The flavour is caramel malts, molasses, fruity, raisins,straw-, raspberries, nutty notes, spicy, licorice. The mouthfeel is sweety, creamy, syrupy and quite thick. This medium to full bodied Ale has a long sweety-sticky and fruity finish. This strong Old Ale, with the usual warming effect, is, for me, too sweety.

    Dark amber colour, small beige head. Alcohol, raisins, plum and nuts in aroma. Raisins, hops and barley in flavour, which is kind of sweetishbitter all the way through. Also roast present in aftertaste.

    I don't belive it! Not only do I come across a very old friend, but none of you guys have had the pleasure. Where do I start.... 20 years ago this was one of the beers that turned me away from lager and onto the dark side. Rich warm and fruity drinks nothing like 7.6%. Many old ales taste of alcohol this just tastes of autumn - wet leaves/chestnuts/winter berries, just fantastic. Beg your outlet to get some it is magnificent !
