On cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest. Hazy mahagony with no head by the time it was delivered. Light caramel malt nose with light hops, low carbonation, smooth, mild, easy to drink but not much going on (as you would expect)...just prefer a little cleaner and crisp.

Pours dark copper with creamy head, lots of carpet lacing. Smells a little hoppy with some malt. Taste is light sour with light bitterness. Pretty high carbonation. Pretty decent for style. On tap at brewpub.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
January 2, 2013 - on draught at the brewpub. Like most of their beers, it looks fantastic - clear, deep and refractive reddish-copper with a long-lasting creamy beige/tan head and even thick lace remnant. It smells a bit like an ESB with no alcohol presence - floral and sweet, but still dry with just a hint of cocoa roastiness. Taste is very very smooth - simple, balanced, dry and quick-finishing - the dryness removes any residual sweetness and it leaves pretty much no aftertaste. On my next visit to Indie I am promising myself at least one full pint of this, no matter how many ratings are on.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a dark amber-brown, almost black, with a small semi-lasting creamy beige head. Nice aroma of light roasted malt, fruit, light hops and light spices. Flavour, also nice, of toasted malt,a good amount of hops and some chocolaty notes. Dry, bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Impressive, this is quite flavourful for a Mild -- really good!
