While a Thursday baby shower took place at G-Lo’s, I offered him an estrogen free zone as a refuge. While in the bunker, we split a Gale’s Prize Old Ale. This product is brewed by George Gale & Co Ltd which is now a subsidiary of Fuller, Smith & Turner P.L.C. (www.fullers.co.uk). This bottle was a 2007 and had a nice pour with a dark, almost chocolate color and good foam. The aroma was fruity with a wine-like quality. I thought so far so good. Unfortunately, this is where it all went wrong. The taste was dreadful. I think it may have been a combination of cut grass and rotten prunes or maybe just gym socks and moldy apricots. Either way the beer was undrinkable, unpalatable and unbelievably bad. Of course, there is the distinct possibility that my local purveyor may have passed along a bottle that wasn’t properly handled. While I would give this beer a D, the average score of a B at the Beer Advocate (www.beeradvocate.com) would suggest that I give this beer another try.
