Avery Old Jubilation Ale

No pics, friends, sorry. I was out and about, away from the photostudio.

Style and Glass: Strong English Ale, Pint
ABV, Volume & Calories: 8% in 12 fl oz. estimated at 200 C
Purchased at: Issac Newton’s, Newtown, PA for $5.00

Aroma: tannins, grapes, malty, sweet, honey, fruity

Visuals: beautiful label, summer sunset, deep, ruby, nice tan head, hazy, long lasting lace.

Taste: well balanced, heavy barley malt, cherry, peach, some hops, good strength.

Palate: high quality, sticky texture, long burnt finish.

Overall: Wonderful, delicious, great flavor & finish. I’d love to repeat. It’s a favorite. High value. High craft. I paired it with vegetarian chili and a blackened chicken wrap — absolutely delicious, and a very good pairing.
