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.

brystmar (1189) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Dark brown color, beady lace. Caramely, toasty aroma. Mildly grainy, yeast with a touch of earth. Good for the style; not my thing.

750ml bottle. Amber brown brew with some tan head. Malty nose - caramel, bread, some roast, and oak. Good amount of flavor for such a low ABV.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 Bottle from Errl. Deep brown color with a thin off-white head that yields some spotty lacing. The aroma is pretty interesting. A dried mixed fruit and oak combo initially, with a little smoke and licorice, as well as faint nutty notes providing depth. The flavor, for the most part, falls in line with that: raisin bread, lightly toasted nuts, quite a bit of oak, some sweet malt. Light body, low to moderate carbonation, short finish. A tad watery, but not too bad. Solid enough but limited.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
My Bottom Line :
Toasted bread and earthy depths are met by fruitiness and light wood in this rough and ready session brew.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam covers the dark brown.
-The mouthfeel is dry and bubbly.
-The toasty, roasty, bready malt flavors are reminiscent of brown malt.
-A light tartness doesn’t quite gel with the toasted bread allusions.
-The abv may be mild enough to warrant a few pints, but the flavor profile isn’t interesting enough for me to ask for more than a half.

Bière très foncée, brune opaque, avec un col de mousse assez important ; notes de fruits confits et de caramel. Au goût, très légère sans être aqueuse, elle présente des saveurs allant de la mélasse aux raisins secs en passant par le toffee, probablement conféré par le boisé du chêne. Étonnamment désaltérante pour une bière si foncée, elle est pourtant d’une belle complexité. Un délice dans son genre.

Bière brune foncée avec des reflets cuivrés-rougeâtres. Le nez flirte avec les fruits rouges, le caramel... et le café (oui!). En bouche, la bière est mince et elle présente ses notes torréfiées en première ligne. L’arrière-goût est doux et quasi-mielleux avec une touche boisée qui s’invite au party sans créer de remous. Très bonne bière!
