Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's its designation, see my beer diary


The first beers were brewed in open baths where wild yeasts would blow in from the fields. this created a vinegar like beer that had to be aged before it could be drunk. Hence beers called "Old", a slightly sharp hoppy beer, and a style no longer brewed in the UK called "Stale" (for those who know it this is the equivalent of a belgian "Lambic").

Actually having tasted it recently it's more of an Old than a stale, but never mind.
