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.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2014 Bottle at CBC Clerkenwell cheers to Fergus. Pours clear dark brown with a small off white head which quickly disappears. Nose is full of dry cocoa - reminds me of Milo in a very weird way, plenty of biscuit and pepper with light citric pith. Taste is moderate spices, toffee biscuit, big aniseed and a touch ashy with mellow funk throughout. A solid, very easy going drop if a little odd

Bottle shared at Gunnar tasting at Craft Clerkenwell. Colour is cloudy medium to dark brown, dirty white head. Nose is a bit strange. Creamy, lactic, milky, dark chocolate, roasted malt, bourbon barrel, vanilla. Taste is sour-ish, watery, caramel, dark chocolate, day old cup of instant coffee. It's a bit all over the place with the flavours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chestnut, cereal notes, soft farmy yeast, hay. Unique aroma. And taste too, although that’s too watery really. Not delicate any more but just without character. Soft carbonation fits well, but I’m not going to get another. (On tap at the brewery)

Pours dark with a small white head. Strong plum, carmel, and roasted malt flavor. Almost too much plum and roasted carmel flavor for me. Not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours clear deep ruby brown, small tan head, good lacing. Aroma is rich malty, caramel, toffee, touch of smoke. Flavor is light sweet, little bitterness, lightly smoky, malty. Light body, high carbonation. Pretty good for the style.

750 ml bottle thanks to errl poured into a Jester King Chalice. Pours a darker ruby color with a large froth of beige, velvety foam. Pretty good retention. The aroma is very malt forward with some lighter esters, some grass, a bit of wood, and some notes of vanilla, which I presume is from the oak. The taste is mildly sweet with a drying, near herbal finish lingering on the tongue. Some nutty notes come out as the beer warms a bit. Definitely an interesting take on a Mild. Very enjoyable. I’ll have to pick up some more bottles of this next time I see them.

Bottle share. Small snifters at home. Pours a medium light brown with a thin white head. Aroma of farmhouse funk, bread, yeasts and oak. Taste was fairly mild with the farmhouse funk prominent and then slight sourness on the finish. It was OK.

750 ml. bottle. Batch number 5. Bottled May 20, 2013. Shared with Arlo and Gabe. Pours a medium, we’ll retained, light beige head, with some lacing, over a brown (SRM 20) body.......nose is malt forward, with hints of vanilla, hints of light sweetness tending to cola.....taste is malt forward, with hints of nuts, light cocoa, coffee, hints of heavy roast, almost smoky,dry throughout, finishing with light bitter ness......mouth feel light, carbonation low, with a light acid finish. This is quite a good example of this old style, although light, it is complex in both aroma and flavor. BJCP 9/3/16/4/8

Bottle @ Bobby’s house. Amber pour with an off-white head. Nutty, toasty aroma. Some seltzer, mineral, and pepper. A bit of coffee and cocoa powder. Flavor is kind of bitter, a little bit tart, and very mildly sweet. Toast, coffee, and lots of nuts. Seltzer water, iron, and some coffee. A bit of cocoa and lemon on the finish.
