An English dark mild session ale, dark brown color, flavor and aroma of malt and caramel dominate with chocolate-roast malt tones, light body, very low hop character and fruity esters.

Draft at Champaign. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Nose is light butterscotch and caramel with a robust cocoa note as well. Some ashy notes. on tasting, it is again more ashy and less chocolatey/roasty with slick buttery notes. The diacetyl oversteps here and becomes distracting. I really wanted to like it but needs a bit of tweeking. Perhaps it was a bad batch.

draft... FYI the alcohol is 2.8% and makes all the difference from this being an average beer to excellent, one of the best sessions beers Iíve ever had... dark brown body, great lacing... the aroma is outstanding, coffee with super sweet toffee molasses, sweet all the way around but still in balance... tastes great, super easy to crush, must try

On tap at the brand new brewpub in Champaign, part of a large tasting flight that I wasnít even charged for! Medium hazy brown, golden highlights, no head. Aroma is light, fruity caramel. Flavours are reminiscent of Newcastle Brown (Parksy pointed this out, I agree), with darker caramel notes. Palate is certainly on the thin side, which isnít necessary in a good mild. Is this even a mild at 4.9%?
