Parallel 49 Brewing – Old Boy Classic Ale Review

The Old Boy Ale is smooth with a of chocolate and toffee base. This beer is dark, but not too dark, sweet, but not too sweet and creamy but not too creamy. Ringing the bell of tradition on this one the Old Boy is a great drinker for someone who wants a dark, flavourful beer but doesn’t want the weight of a porter or a stout. Lightly hopped with a great malt finish this beer is a very enjoyable and comes from the newest brewery in BC (for now).
