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.

b3shine (5577) - Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared by Ferris). Bottled on 2014/JUL/29. Looks good; a semi-transparent darker brown with light caramel head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty and lightly roasty/toasty. Tastes like it smells, but more robust, with a bit of chocolate as well. Pleasantly smooth on the palate. A good example of the style.

Draft - Toffee and toasted malts, with some hints of raisin. Deep clear brown with a nice beige head. Dark fruit, toffee and pepper. Nice, flavourful and light. Well done.

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 (3229) - Out Of This World, 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 (3183) - 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.
