COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Burial at Sea is a collaborative project between head brewerís Jeff Hancock of DC Brau and Stephen Jones of Oliver Ales in Baltimore, MD. Mild ales are traditionally referred to as "session ales" known for their low alcohol content which is around 3.2 - 4.0%. Despite their low alcohol content, Milds are just as flavorful as beers with a higher ABV. In crafting this beer we used only the finest maltís and hopís from England. Burial at Sea starts with a great malty nose boasting aromas of milk chocolate and biscuity sweetness. The beer has a medium mouthfeel that drinks with a soft, mineral smoothness and just enough hops to counter the chewy malt character. Fermented with a clean American yeast that lets the oats, barley and hops dominate and take center stage. With DC Brau we decided to brew a red mild, 7bbls at Oliverís, 30bbls at DC Brau using the same recipe and yeast (Wye yeast 1056 American Ale yeast) for both. The only significant difference other than batch size is that Oliverís was fermented in open vessels and DC Brauís in closed vessels. This makes a side by side tasting of both cask and draft from each brewery an interesting prospect indeed!

From brewery. DC Brau version. Poured a slightly hazy, but mostly translucent light brown, reddish color. Small off-white head? Aroma was mostly light malts, touch nuttiness. Flavor was about the same. Interesting - pretty session-able.
