It is, quite simply, the One Brew to Rule Them All. Mild enough to break out before mid-day, yet fortified with notes of toasty malt and herbal hops to sustain weary travelers whenever the road goes on and on. It’s an ideal session beer - though be forewarned there are some reports that frolicking and fellowship may ensue.
Whether you’re looking to toast this year’s big winter blockbuster with a fitting brew, or simply seeking a top-notch brown ale with a taste for adventure, try Palmer’s Elevenses Ale. It’s pure fantasy, come to life.

4.9 / 5.015 ReviewsMinor league stout, major league tasteGreat beer even though I goofed. Recipe calls for 0.6 oz of hops and I added the whole bag 1oz. Smokey rich malty wonderful flavor. Definitely big improvement from store bought brown ales.July 26, 2016BalancedThis beer is the perfect balance of malty sweetness with a hint of smokeyness that comes through the warmer it gets. You can taste the oak come through and its a perfect balance with the Norther Brewer hops. Great session beer. Love this beer!August 26, 2013Boom!This has to be one of the best kit beers I have ordered ever! I totally brewed this daydreaming about Frodo Baggins and the Shire, and refused to take a single sip until week 5... ish. I christened this batch off to the trilogy and smiled to the very last sip!!!August 20, 2013Such a good beer!Absolutely fantastic when properly brewed, lightly carbonated, and served north of 45F. The smoke character is in the background and melds well with darker grains. I love the Mild style, but this is by far my favorite grain bill. I will definitely be playing with the Oak Smoked malt in other beers.When I think of Hobbits, this is it. Dark, lightly smokey, unfiltered (through clear with english yeast), lightly carbonated, and low enough gravity to drink as many as your belly can hold without feeling it.GREAT BEER!!December 17, 2014What the doctor orderedA perfect session beer. The ingredients were shipped fresh and were great quality. Easily the best beer I've had in a while and second only to the Zombie Dust kit as far as beer I've made to date. Will defiantly brew again.November 9, 2014Chocolate and a Hint of Smoke..Easily my favorite brew thus far.... Dark medium body with lots of chocolate and a nice smokey finish. A very balanced and yet complex finish.... Drink a bit above the normal and you will not be disappointed.January 18, 2014Great beer!I accidentaly ordered the grains crushed and let it sit for a few weeks before I realized this. Missed the OG by 5 and had to use the dry alternative because my 1275 smack pack exploded. I'm not sure I toasted the oats as much as needed, no cookie smell. Even so, this beer is excellent! Drink it at cellar temps with some aged cheddar. Very complex and tasty malt profile.April 22, 2013Great with your biscuitI can't say I got it to turn out exactly right, but I do know I got my oats a deep golden. Wonderful dryness and maltiness with a low body and light carbonation that really helps wash any food down, but dear lord, a bottle of this and a brownie is heaven. It really offsets super sweet foods perfectly without overpowering them. I imagine a heavily iced cake would be perfect as well.February 26, 2015Good Session BeerI just tried this beer last night for the first time and boy was I impressed. I was really looking for a session beer that had a bit of complexity to it. This one doesn't Disappoint. The toasted oats was a fun step that really adds a nice dimmension to the flavor. It smells and tastes fantastic even when sampling a week too early. I guess I need patience but this is a great kit.December 16, 2013Excellent brewIt canÕt find a commercial example of this style that tastes as good. I used the Wyeast in a 650ml starter and upped the hops to 0.7, using 0.2 of them FWH. My only issue was not properly toasting the oats (I was too worried about burning them). They got hot and crisp but not brown. Hit the OG exactly (a first for me as this is only my fourth all grain brew) and my FG stopped at 1.013. Bottled for 2.4 vols.I canÕt wait to brew this again with properly toasted oats.December 19, 2014
Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 1 answerWhat is the intended IBUs? I have found alpha acids to be much lower lately and have had to make adjustmentsBEST ANSWER: I have brewed this beer 5 times. One of my favorite beers. Twice the IBU was in the 30s. The other times 18-22 IBU. I enjoy it much better in the lower range. The bitterness even at 30 interferes with the overall experience of the beer. I like traditional low IBU nonhoppy British brown ales so that's where I'm coming from.
