Brewery: Founders Brewing Company
Style: Old Ale
Format: 355ml Bottle
This Old Ale conjures up thoughts of classic sea fairing ports, there local pubs and the weathered fisherman that frequent them. In traditional style Curmudgeon is brewed with an intense focus on the malt bill creating a very strong, rich, malty characteristic and a sweetness indicative of its cousin the barleywine. We are especially proud of the balance in this beer making it deceptively smooth and drinkable at 9.8% alcohol by volume.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
great warming beer
First time having an "Old Ale" and I found it quite dry, with a slight metallic taste at first and a sweetness that vanishes all too quickly. As it warmed it really came into it's own and tasted great. Worth trying.
Great example of an Old Ale
A warming copper bodied ale. Offers rich flavours of toffee, dried apricot & raisin, toasty oakiness with rum & bourbon undertones, with a long smooth, welcoming finish. A beautiful sipper for the cold weather.
