COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg & Bottled, special
We’ve dubbed this 2.8% beer an ‘imperial mild’ because it’s mild on alcohol but unquestionably imperial on flavour. Dry hopped with Cascade, Centennial and Amarillo this is an ale with a big character that belies its small ABV.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, - JAN 23, 2014
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je velmi příjemné chmelové s nádechem citrusů a lehce kávy. Pěna je světle hnědé barvy, jemná, vysoká a mizící. Barva samotného piva je tmavě rubínová. Chuť je příjemně svěží s lehkým sladovým nádechem a příjemným závojem exotického ovoce, finiš je středně hořký a držící. Celkově se jedná o velmi příjemné pití, hlavně po namáhavé činnosti, má vysokou pitelnost a velmi příjemné aroma i chuť.

Benzai (8140) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle shared at ChrisO. Clear amber color, average sized off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly leaves, dried fruits, a bit weird. Low to average body and carbonation.

Ferris (3909) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle - Light earthy hops, bit of pine and malt. Dark cloudy amber with a rich beige head. Malty and light hop character. Not that pleasant.

Karol (630) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 5, 2014
Bottled. I love this mild ale due to its full flavor but very low alcohol. A perfect soft drink! Hoppy, bitter chocolate, some bitter exotic fruits, watery and refreshing in taste. I would definitely love an alcohol free version of this awesomeness.

Beese (1667) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Draught at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 15 March 2014. Poured a dark brown, with an off-white head. Smokey aroma, with notes of brown sugar and dark malts. Initial flavours of toasted malt, brown sugar and hay. Finish was rye bread, burnt wood chips and malt.

ShaneJ (499) - AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle from BrewDog online shop (Nov 2013). Dark brown, creamy/frothy light brown head, chocolatey, biscuity malts, floral, grassy hops, medium bitterness, medium sweetness, light body, thin palate. An excellent mild.

DruncanVeasey (7157) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Keg, BrewDog Brum, 26/03/14, and numerous bottles over Christmas not realising I was drinking a different beer to the original. Ruby with a sustained beige collar speckling the pint pot. Chunky and cask in feel with a mellow smoke and chocolate foundation quietly overpowered by dried flowers, chalk, rose and molten Quality Street strawberry cream-like notes. Beautiful.

harrisoni (13622) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2014
On tap at Brewdog Shepherds Bush. Clear ruby colour lasting cream head. I remember when this first came out. Hoppy aroma. It’s still a fine example of lots of hops some lime chocolate flavour. Definitely tasty.

(bottle 05/03-2014) medium fading beige head, murky amber color, bitter, slim body, medium co2, caramel taste. Batch #216, BB date 12-09-14.

Nilz (382) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle pours a dark ruby-brown ale with an abundant head which eventually died down. Aroma fruity hops. Taste thin body, mild malty sweetness, modest bitter finish I thought.
