It looks like the original was 12% ABV - English hops and barley.

Greene King makes a ‘modern’ version of the “Coronation Ale” at 4% - available now in pubs across the UK.

Absolutely. British ales only improve with age.

I chugged the 1902 Bass Kings Ale after its 100th anniversary and it drunk good, surprisingly good. Beautiful clear amber, musty but grainy. Oxidation was surprisingly low for a beer of its age.
