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.

75cl bottle at Gunnar tasting, thanks to Fergus for this one. It pours a copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma is light roasted malts, caramel, dried fruits, wood. Taste is light roasted malts, grassy hops, peppery wood notes. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Ok

Pours dark brown, almost black with no head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, oak, slight roast and lacto. Taste is tart, malty, roast and caramel. Very mild(no pun intended) but in a good way, light tart, very drinkable but with great flavor.

mR_fr0g (3106) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle share at the Gunnar tasting at CBC clerkenwell. Bottle from cotteridge wines. Clouded caramel red coloured pour with a lasting off white head. Aroma is oak, caramel, slight honey and effervesent. Flavour is iron, blood, caramel and nutty mineral. Palate is really thin, watery mineral. Carbonation is too high. Not great.

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

EdKing (1866) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
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

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 10, 2014
Chestnut, cereal notes, soft farmy yeast, hay. Unique aroma. And taste too, although thatís too watery really. Not delicate any more but just without character. Soft carbonation fits well, but Iím 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. Iíll 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.
