Darkly coloured and rich in appearance, this mild ale is brewed in the traditional style of British mild beers that are disappearing even from the pubs of London, England. Grand River Brewing has revived this traditional style of beer that is deep in colour but doesn’t possess the harsh bitterness that many people associate with a darker beer. The pronounced creamy head welcomes you and is followed with a beautiful roasted barley flavour and a smooth creamy taste. This is a beer that just makes you want to have another and with being a mild, go right ahead.

Une courtoisie de kevinsenn. Une bouteille datée du 31 janvier 2013. Une robe brune et une petite mousse volatile. Un nez léger de grains noircis et de chocolat entouré d’une petite fumée bien agréable. Un goût pas compliqué mais plaisant de grains rôtis lavés. Une bouche mince, accordée sur le style. Une finale courte, brune et sans doute légèrement terreuse.

Bouteille de 500ml brassée le 31 janvier 2013. Robe brun-rouge avec une mousse blanche. Au nez il est facile de déceler les arômes fumés, d’iode, de chocolat et le tout est dilué. La bouche est mince, iodée, fumée, chocolatée avec des grains mouillés grillés. Facile mais agréable.

A clear brown ale with a thick big bubbled brown head. In aroma, sweet nutty malt with light molasses. In mouth, a smooth roasted malt with light acidity, OK.

bunget (440) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
On tap at Cafe 13 in Cambridge. A nice clear brown body, small beige head, decent retention. Delicate aroma of caramel, cheese, nuts, roasted malt and some floral nuances. Taste dominated by roasted malt and caramel, nuts, a touch of herbal tones. Low carbonation and almost no bitterness at all. Great representative of this style. Probably one of the best brews from Grand River Brewing.

Bought from Grand River Brewery retail store. Poured from 500ml botlle. Nice dark reddish brown with thick frothy head. Nutty, coffee aroma, but something else I can’t quite put a finger on. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Tastes like a very mild porter. Good flavour, but very mild. Easily drinkable.

Smells like caramel, honey or even maple. Pours dark with a little lacing. Theres some barley here and a taste of bitterness. The beer doesnt have that much depth, but its good for the style - Grand River doesnt usually disappoint on that end. That said, I wont be rushing back to drink this. Tap at volos

Wow... 99 percentile? Well, I don’t know if this is better than 99% of beers in its style, but that’s because I feel milds don’t get rated high enough! I won’t punish this beer for that. This one of my favourite Canadian session beers... it’s not easy to make such a well balanced beer, with the bitterness and sweetness having a pillowfight on your tonsils but they’ve done it. (My apologies if you’re tonsilly disabled)

Dark roast, strawberry and cherry aroma. Very dark ruby brown. Smooth and gentle roast, little grainy twang and strawberry juice.

Tap at volo, pour is pretty dark, the taste is a nice mix of porter like dark roasty malts and just a light taste of the yeastyness. The beer is pretty mild, overall not bad, but not too amazing, decent stuff
