Just picked one of these up on eBay UK. Can't seem to find any reviews. Anyone had a chance to tick this one?



Also thinking about picking up a 1911 H & G Simonds Coronation Ale. Any tidbits on that bottle would be appreciated as well.

Trady did according to untappd

I love old beer but this envoking my gag reflex.
dfclav shared one with our Gang Bang team a few years back, I got the last pour out of the bottle (had all the nice yeast crusties). It was pretty far gone in oxidation, but not really offensive to drink, even if I got the shit pour.

I certainly don't have any expectations about the taste. These super-old beers are all about the experience for me - I think it's cool to consume something that was made so long ago.

I think this may be a different beer than the one Trady had (or maybe it's the same beer but brewed by a different brewery - will have to do a bit more research).
