COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The second product to become available from Cheshire Valley is an Unfiltered English Mild. This product is 3.7% abv with medium bitterness supported by chocolate and roasted malt flavours. The hop flavour is light but balanced by chocolate malt sweetness. This beer is excellent by itself, however it also goes well with cheese. A great Session Ale.

My Bottom Line:
Earthen hops and roasted malts evolve into leafy, almost vegetal notes in this lean Dark Mild.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the dark brown gown.
-Mouthfeel is not soft and cuddly, but rather slender and bubbly.
-Bitterness is surprisingly prominent.
-This is nowhere near as smooth and malty as Moorhouse’s (UK) or Albion’s (QC) take on the style.

On tap at Bar Isabel.

On tap at Volo. Helluva lot of flavour for a mild. The chocolate malt is a nice touch and in perfect proportion. Seems to be some brown spice, although I’m not sure if it is a natural by-product or added.. Or my imagination. Some anise too. Great session ale.

From notes at Cask Days. Pours a clear amber with a tall foamy head, Aroma of roasted malts, slight coffee and herbal notes. Flavour follows aroma, nice carbonation, quite balanaced and very drinkable.

asheft (2476) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2012
[bottle at BJCP exam, Ottawa, May 2012] Complex, toasty aroma with roasted hazelnuts, a little bread crust, almonds, and a healthy dose of red currants. Clear, dark brown under a wispy white top with large bubbles. Rich flavour of dark malt toasti- and nuttiness along with plenty of roasted barley vanilla and bitter chocolate. Faint fruit in the flavour compared to the aroma. Medium body, moderate carbonation, nutty chocolate finish.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2011
Cask - Volo Cask Days 2010, Day 2 (session 4a). 18 IBUs. Clear chestnut with a large-ish frothy off-white head. Slight sweet roasty aroma, nutshell, roast mild coffee bean and just a whisper of dry grassiness. Taste follows, but is just too watery - in body too, mild carbonation, quick-finishing .... certainly easy to drink, but a mild can be quite a bit beefier with the malt than this (think pretty much any of the House Ales milds).

On tap, I really liked this one, mild ales are quite interesting. It had a nice aroma of a chocolaty and dark roasty malts. The flavour was like a light flavoured porter. it had the same kind of flavour you would expect from a porter. Appearance is very dark and what you mind find from a average porter. Overall I would recommend a taste of this one.

Deep brown pour with a tight tan head. The aroma has a lot of toasty malt with a bit of soft black licorice on the back of the palate. Light palate with a faint kiss of roast. Light earty hoppiness but the beer is pretty damn authentic. Sessionable and quite flavourful.
