Big thanks to douglas88 for the growler of this top notch Mild Ale. It pours dark brown with amber hues and tan head. The aroma has a touch of earthiness to go along with some malt roast and the faintest sense of hoppiness. I get both malts and roast in the initial pulse of flavor. Those notes are followed by a fairly deep dark earthiness to midway. Into the finish the earthiness begins to recede leaving a pleasing malts roastiness, a touch of dryness and a sense of vague hop bitterness. The after taste has roast and just a bit of chocolate malts. Very nice.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2008 On tap at the brewpub. This beer won gold in 2007 at GABF, so I had to have it. Pours a dark brown with a medium cream colored head. The aroma is sweet toast and some honey. The taste is a great example of a English-style mild; roasted coffee and a strong toasted malt, also, some bitterness in the finish. Really well made. Smooth and easy, but also damn tasty. A great job.

(Growler thanks to bu11zeye) Pours clear brown with some bubbles. Nose is meaty, smoke. Taste unsweet crackers, bland, and pretty nondescript. I enjoyed it, but not sure how to describe this one.

NABA 08’: Pours a coppery brown color with light head. The nose is intensely malty with lots of caramel and melanoidins. Toast, biscuit, coffee. Amazingly malty mouthfeel and a creamy toasty finish. So good, I wish I could take more of this away. Wow!
