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: 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.

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!

Bottle from Vaaland, Bryne. Pours very dark ruby with a big creamy weak tanned head. Aroma is nice, milk chocolate, dark malts with light roasted coffee notes. Taste is moderate, mild sweet, chocolate and toffee,rich body considering the low abv,light bitter and woody end, smashing.

Bottle:   Deep dirty ruby, thin to moderate foamy sandy head, decent lacing.   Oakish nose, slightly sweet.   Slightly musty, basement, and barnish like along with faint caramel.   Very mild on the tongue, nothing other than some maltiness and oak.   Yeah, Mild Ale ey?   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   I am just thankful this one didn’t gush everywhere.   Finishes musty, dull caramel, and a bunch of oak.   Has a smidgen of sourness, while not being tart nor sour.   Meh...   Thanks Bill!

This beautiful rich brown beer has a sweet fruity flavor with a chocolate finish. It is rich enough but not too much so. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.75l bottle from Øltorget. It pours a dark deep ruby colored body with a nice medium sized light beige head on top. Really surprising aroma, as I was expecting something completely different. I like what is smelling here, with soft dark malts, lots of mild chocolate and chocolate paper, some coffee, roasted dry malts, some cocoa and something kinda fruity floral. Impressive stuff. Oh it has a soft acidity within lots of chocolate and coffee. A bit thin on the mouthfeel perhaps and the carbonation is just below average. The sourness is not pushy order anything, it’s just there in a way dark chocolate biscuits and something herbal. Thyme and wood in the finish. Could it be a mild this, it sure tastes like a mild but a mild from Texas? Now I’ve seen it all.. A interesting one indeed! 07.06.2013

Big fan of this little beer. Pours a deep brown with a frothy tan head. Nose and taste are oaky, nice amount of malt flavor for the low ABV. I’m a fan, it’s a real easy drinker, but not a pounder. Smooth balanced and plenty flavorful.
