Panhead Grease Monkey Oak-Aged Old Ale (500ml Bottle)
Back in the day being a mechanic meant getting your hands dirty, not plugging in a computer and phoning the parts warehouse. With its dark brown hue and balance of sweetness and hop hit, Grease Monkey has been brewed to celebrate those hard-working habitués of the hoist. Oak aging means the taste will mellow over time, much like the memory of a large repair bill. Leave it with us. Should be ready Thursday.
Old Ale is a simple enough style to figure out. At least, once you understand that there are three or four beer styles called Old Ale. The first is the best known - the strong dark Old Peculier style. The second type of Old Ale is a blended dark ale. At least one of the beers comprising the blend will be aged for a couple of years in wood casks. The third version of Old Ale is a form of mild – a low-gravity dark ale. Another version of Old Ale is closely related to the first. For me, these are robustly malty beers, akin to a top-fermented version of a doppelbock.
