creamy and mild with some dark fruit and a character of vegetable in the finish. mild in every way and soft with some toffee taking too much charge with this one. a bit of vanilla.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Harvest Moon as Elme’s Mild Manor. Pours a deep earthy brown amber with a thin white head. Sweet malt and toast, caramel on the nose. Roast and cocoa. Sweet and malty, nice roast comes through over some sweet dark fruit. Very nice. A bit boozy and warm which surprised me until I saw that it was 5.8% and not under 4% like I might expect from the style, but it still works. Long slow finish with more plum and prune, more sweet malt and warming alcohol.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Half Pint at the Brewery as "Elmes Mild Manor". Pours in a pale coppery brown with some haze and a wispy whitish head. Aroma is a minimal waft of hoppy sugars and bland malt. Flavors are similar. There’s a strong, slightly metallic hop edge to a very generic, biscuit-like malt base. Yeast profile is minimal, thankfully. It’s too sweet, too heavy and too strong for the style. It doesn’t have that ragingly drinkability. Mediocre.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap in New Brunswick, deep amber/brownish appearance with little head. Aroma was malty and a little doughy but also strong nuttiness/caramel noted. Taste was well balanced between sweet maltiness and bitterness. Palate was a little rough with a decidedly bitter aftertaste. Unique beer- didnt really know how to categorize it as i was drinking it at the bar- but nonetheless a good experience.
