COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English pub ale meets the French farmhouse tradition and American oak aging in this dry, drinkable farmhouse mild ale. Full-flavored, but brewed with enough restraint to be highly sessionable. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally conditioned.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost vaguely red color with a big white head. Really stuffy nose has a lot of dusty, cellar notes. Taste is very strange. Dark, tawny, yet very light. Has sort of an caramel apple thing going on. Really complex but low alcohol lets you drink a ton. Almost makes it tiring, but that’s drinking a 750 ml by myself.

beernbourbon (1326) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle. Pour is a deep, clear, reddish amber with a medium tab head. Aroma is lightly toasted malt, faint pumpkin pie spice, and light chocolate notes. Flavor is light coffee malt, faint raw grain, lightly spicy, and clean cocoa nibs in the finish. Also faintly earthy. Easy to drink with nice character. A little tartness shows though as it warms. Very nice.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Served with nice, tan head that settled after a bit and no lace. Color is clear, I think, and a dark, rich mahoganey.Aroma is malt, cocoa, vanilla, yeast. Flavor’s like nose plus a bit of a tang. Body is a little thin with good carbonation. Finish is like flavor; thinness is a bit of a drag, otherwise, not bad.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
750 ml bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid dark brown toward blackish, even through direct light. The head is one finger, khaki,, and well retained. Nose has cacao, roasty malt, some yeasty and berry notes. Tastes dry, with notes of oak, cacao, funky yeasty malt, blackberry. Complex flavor, dense mouthfeel, and a crisp tart finish. I can’t believe this one is only 3.5% ABV.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Aroma is earthy with hints of dark fruit. Pours a dark brown with a mostly diminishing white head and no lacing. The taste is earthy, nutty, and a pleasant woodiness. Medium body with average carbonation. Overall, a lot of taste for a low ABV beer. Very drinkable and great with food. Will buy again.

djd07 (3879) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper with a small frothy beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a bready malt and oak. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt with some funk. Easy to drink. A good mild ale from Jester King.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bomber. Poured dark brown with a medium-sized dense tan head. Aroma was toasty malt, earthy, musty, light smoke. Flavor was moderately malty, some chocolate, quite earthy and musty, strongly vegetal, some light funk. Taste and mouthfeel were rather thin. I really wanted to like this -- the idea intrigued me, and I really like most Jester King stuff. This -- not so much. Didn’t quite work.

Strykzone (5066) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Sampled at an esbls tasting. I bought it near Austin. Dark brown with no head. A bit of smoke in the aroma with caramel. Ths is thin. Wood flavor with bark. This is disappointing. Something like mushrooms. Odd.
