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.

superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Got in a trade with cyde. 750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, toffee, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, pepper, clove, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of malt, fruity/spicy yeast, and oak notes; and great strength. Taste of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, nuttiness, pepper, clove, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, oak, light vanilla, clove, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Outstanding robustness, complexity, and balance of malt, oak, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is an incredible farmhouse mild ale! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of malt, yeast, and oak flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Location: 750 ml bottle from Central Market, 11/4/13, Batch #5

Aroma: The aroma is fairly light, some wood, a bit of art berry, mild caramel, and a bit of cardboard
Appearance: It pours a mahogany color with a thick froth of beige head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, some tartness, wood, and mild malty and spice flavors
Palate: The body is light and just a bit thin, but not watery, with a tingly feel/carbonation
Overall Impression: This is a nice take on the style overall. There’s a decent amount going on here considering that we are talking about such a low ABV beer. I enjoyed it.

theisti (3093) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 24, 2013
750 ml bottle purchased at Pinocchio’s Beer Garden in Media, Pennsylvania. The pour is a clear brown mahogany with a small off white head. The aroma has a soft tobacco along with oak wood. The taste is a pleasant blend of the earthy tobacco and oak wood, softly vanilla notes of the nose. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft carbonation and a softly sweet finish. A bunch going on for such a low ABV beer. Nice mild.

Bottle, smell is roasted light coffee, appearance is dark brown with a thin light tan head, taste is lightly roasted with caramel. Not bad but wish they put more taste and alcohol in this one.

magsinva (846) - Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle from Hop City Birmingham - pours dark murky brown. I think the mild ale label works better then farmhouse, as it’s thin and not very funky, which is not what I would expect to see in a farmhouse. Solid, but boring.
