Hearken, ye merry craft-ale imbibers, as we present thee an ale inspired by medieval England. This re-creation of a medieval English ale is a brew the Knights of the Round Table would have heartily enjoyed. A strong beer, it has intense bready malt character accompanied by herbal, earthy hop notes and mild smokiness. The addition of elderberries imparts subtle blueberry-like flavor, while flaked oats and pale, amber and smoked malts mirror grains used by English brewers hundreds of years ago. It’s a beer inspired by the Middle Ages, but perfect for enjoying in the 21st century.

    Pours clear chestnut with a fairly thick, though slowly disappearing, buff head. Malty aroma has a definite overtone of elderberries - what could it be but elderberries? - and a hoppy undertone. Flavor kicks everything up a notch - more malt, more woody hops, and definitely more elderberries. All of a sudden I am hearing Elton John’s "Elderberry Wine" while drinking Elderberry Beer. Firm body presents good fizz and a fruity, woody finish. Drunk all the time feelin’ fine on Your Father Smelt of Elderberries.

    Bottle. Deep ruby pour with a short, fizzy tan head. Aroma is smoky with toasted malt, earthy notes and subtle fruit. Taste is sweet malt, smoked malt, caramel, dark fruit, earthy notes and an herbal or minty note on the back end. Body is medium and chewy with moderate prickly carbonation. Light bitterness leftover on the tongue as well. Ends with more smoked malt, sweet malt, caramel, light toffee, dark fruit, herbal notes and soft earthy notes. Not bad!
