COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of the few British-Style Mild Ales brewed in the United States. PMD is a dark mahogany-colored ale which displays a very mild flavor and low alcohol content. Itís rich color comes from the use of Chocolate and Caramel malts plus a hint of Black malt, which imparts a light toffee flavor.

On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. Pours a ruby brown with a thin beige head. Loads of caramel and smooth malt. Light caramel sweetness, toasty malt, not complex, but nice simplicity. Light dry bitter, a bit of grain. Easy drinking.

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2010
On draft at Goose Island Clybourn. Pours a clear, mahogony body with a thin, off-white head. Light caramel and toast in the nose along with faint roasty notes. Caramel and toffee come forth in the flavor profile followed by toast, roast and some light nutty flavors. A touch of raisin is a nice complement. Light body borders on thin. Prickly, but not aggressive carbonation. Malty, with no bitterness and a clean finish. Overall very good and complex for such a small beer. Super sessionable.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Draft at Clybourn. Poured a clear dark orange-brown color. The head was thin and off white. Smelled of nuts, cracker, and minimal chocolate. Light bodied and dryish. Tasted of nuts and roasty malt predominantly with a hint of peat, perhaps.

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2009
On tap at Goose Island Clybuorn. Pours amber with a thin beign head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is of malt, caramel, dark fruit, bread, and hops. Taste has only a very small hop character. The beer is dominated mostly by caramel and the dark fruit flavors. Backbone is of bready malt, and has sort of a gritty taste to it. Lingering toffee taste finishes up each sip. The mouthfeel is very crisp yet slightly watery. I really enjoyed this beer. Iíd be down to session this one.

drpimento (2151) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Served in a half pint with a tan head that quickly disappeard completely. No lace. Nice mahoganey color. Aroma was malty, a bit toasty, a bit of caramel and toffee, and a bit of hops. Flavorís about the same and true to style. The body was very watery though and that took it down some for me. Itíd be too watery for a session beer for my taste. Finish was ok.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Listed as 3.0% at the brewpub...I knew what I was getting into. Pours clear brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt and maybe a little bit smokey. Mild sweet flavor though. Obviously Iím not expecting much from a 3.0% beer, but man is it thin.

jsquire (3387) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2007
On tap at the pub. Foamy beige head over a deep mahogany beer. Light roasted grain and chocolate nose. Bready malts, toasted bread and roasted grains with a little chocolate and some cola sweetness. The finish tends towards burnt toast. The whole thing is very flavorful but it does feel lighter in body. Good lunch beer with the Pilsen burger.

Dark brown color. Very light aroma, watery mouthfeel, weak, with traces of roasted malt. Too poor.
