Threaded View
I have heard there is a great beer brewed at Trinity College in
England, and served on the final day of exams, called "Audit Ale."

The only description I can find is one of a "classic pale ale."


"Over the years, ales can be - and have been - named after almost
anything. At Trinity College in Cambridge, 'Audit Ale' was brewed
specifically for students to drink on the day their annual audits, or
performance reviews, were posted at the school."


Has anyone ever seen a recipe for this mystery brew? Anyone ever tasted
it? What does it compare to?

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

I was once told college ales were no longer brewed, but that they
tended to be a mixture of a standard ale with the addition of a small
amount of port... no idea whether this is actually true.

Plans of king's in the 17/18c, by the way, do include a college
brewhouse. No longer there, alas...

Very interesting! How much port do you think would be appropriate for a
5-gal batch? Are we talking, say, just a touch (say a cup?) or
something more substantial?
