Dapper Dan is a session ale in the British tradition. It is robust in flavor yet quite low in alcohol, to enable rich conversation over plenty of pints without getting totally shnockered. Four different roasted malts add complexity, while our Kölsch yeast delivers its classic roundness and a restrained fruitiness. Dapper Dan is named after Matt’s good friend Dan Vetrovsky, whose “impeccable style and taste in brews from all over the world served to inspire my interest in beer, foreign relations, the Pogues, and a mistrust of public holidays,” according to Matt. Cheers Dan! Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner and Dark Munich malt, imported brown, crystal and roasted malts, Warrior and Sterling hops.

Tap (nitro) at Double Mountain, Hood River, 24/05/13. Nose carries dark malts and toffee notes. Taste comprises toffee, dark malt, biscuit. Light body, too thin, smooth on the palate. Dull!

Sasparilla body with luscious, dreamy chocolate cover. Feint chocolate nose with espresso inferences. Light body belies the deepness of color putting this into British "Mild" designation. Lovely chocolate and coconut nuances.

On nitro. Nose has note of dark roast almost as found in a dry stout. Light chocolate and some sweetness is there also. Pours dark brown with a creamy beige head from the nitro. Flavor is dark and roasty, lightly nutty, light chocolate malt sweetness with a dry earthy roast and earthy bitterness rounding out the finish. Creamy body, smooth drinking, flavorful light brown ale.

On tap at the brewpub. I didn’t expect much out of this beer because of the low abv, but I was completely blown out of the water by it. I’ve become so infatuated by alcohol bomb IIPAs and Stouts that I forgot the pleasures to be gleaned from a nice low alcohol beer. This one poured out a lovely dark brown with a small off white head and solid lacing. The aroma was pure caramel malt with some light chocolate and earthen hop notes. The flavor was shockingly robust with the caramel malt, some light biscuit and chocolate with a small bit of earthen hop. The mouthfeel was so much thicker than I expected, and everything about this beer screamed high quality. If only all low abv beers tasted this great!
