Not a very exciting brew. It has some subtle oregat like qualities in the nose, but its actual taste and finish I find to be thin. Understandably it is a mild ale, but its mildness didn’t leave too much to remember it by.

Light, slightly fruity toasted aroma. clear, walnut-cola brown with a filmy bone colored head. Orange gel and light roast flavor. Medium bodied with a short, citrusy finish. Some grassiness in there as well. Pretty good. Momo’s, on tap.

15 cl test pĺ Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, Florida. Nötighet och fruktighet, sĺ kan jag väl bäst beskriva detta öl, som i all sin tämliga anonymitet ändĺ är helt okey.

NordicV (1955) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2012
Rödbrun öl med lätt gulvitt skum. Dofter av rostad malt och hasselnötter. Lätt nötig beska. Mörkt osötat bröd och lätt rostad ton tillsammans med lätt karamellsötma.

Growler. Dark brown color with a thin off-white head on top. Not much sticks around for lacing. The aroma is fairly nice with caramel, toasted almond, and some light chocolate. Pretty much the same thing going on with the flavors; toasty caramel malt mixes with some lighter chocolate notes and perhaps a little mixed dried fruit. I don’t really get almond here. This is very drinkable; carbonation is relatively high and spritzy. This is a pretty solid brew, although I admit to be rather unexcited with it. In some ways it seems like a slightly watered down version of Maduro.

glennmastrange (2682) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Tap. Light to moderate malt notes of toasted, cocoa and nuts, light herbs and dough for the hops and yeast, with hints of toffee and dried fruit. Head is small, fizzy off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear brown. Flavor starts lightly acidic and finishes the same with just a touch of bitterness. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. A very easy drinking beer with some good qualities, but with a Mild Ale there’s just not a whole lot of anything.

BigSound (196) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2012
From notes. On tap at cigar city. This brew poured a deep mahogany brown with red hues where the light passed through, very little head on this mostly due to the pour, what did remain was on the yellow side of off-white. The nose on this one was pretty roasty, notes of caramel, chocolate, and a bit of earthiness. Up front I get those sweet malty flavors, chocolate and a little fruit I can’t put my finger on. There are some earthy notes followed up by a bit of grassy hop. The body is fairly light and the carbonation sits on the high side making this brew very drinkable. Overall a nice drinkable beer, but nothing to wright home about.

Entering old-rates. Draft @ CCB, cheers to the old Ybor cigar factory Lector. Encore une petite brune qui se laisse déguster. Rappelle la Chaveta dans son profile léger mais pleine de saveur. Donne un brun léger avec col beige. Un arôme léger de malt avec des notes grillées le tout présente un léger parfum houblonné. Palais est similaire avec un profile malt trčs agréable allant vers le chocolat léger et une pointe grillée. Le tout conserve ce léger aspect épicé houblon et de grains concassés.
