COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bamsen78 (2964) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle @ America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours slightly hazy dark copper brown, with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, with floral and citrusy notes. Vinous flavour with notes of fruit and yeast and touches of malt. Mild aftertaste. More like a mild version of Sour Brown. OK.

SlovakSniper (3036) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
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.

rodenbach99 (3078) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
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.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
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 (505) - 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.

mmacleod75 (107) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2012
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.
