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.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bomber. Poured dark brown with a medium-sized dense tan head. Aroma was toasty malt, earthy, musty, light smoke. Flavor was moderately malty, some chocolate, quite earthy and musty, strongly vegetal, some light funk. Taste and mouthfeel were rather thin. I really wanted to like this -- the idea intrigued me, and I really like most Jester King stuff. This -- not so much. Didn’t quite work.

achtungpv (211) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Odd caramel brown color with a yellow head. Looks a bit like dirty urine. Some mild sour up front and pleasant very light grassy and citrus notes. Pleasant and very easy drinking but it is one ugly beer.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a soft amber head. Aroma is roasted sour malt. Taste is muted sour, nuts, some cocoa. Goes down smooth with no lingering after taste.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 Pours from bottle an intense brown/red with lots of head. Smells funky in a good way. Very carbonated and a medium light thickness. Taste is a muted sour. Very earthy taste from the oak actually dominates. Its okay.

roxtersoxter (320) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Pours dark brown with small fizzy tan head out of bottle. Aroma of caramel, oak, and funk. Flavor of a tart amber lager. Good beer but not impressed coming from jester king. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a super large dirty white head with excellent retention and some good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with some oak notes and funky ester is a weird mix that I wasn’t expecting. Taste is a mix between some tart notes with lightly sweet caramel malt with dry funky yeast notes. Body is light with perfect carbonation. Glad I’ve had the chance to try this beer but not sure it is something I would seek on a regular basis.

JBPortland (842) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 30, 2014
750ml bottle pours dark cloudy chestnut brown with 3 finger eggshell head. Nose is soft subtle dark bready malt and light spice. Taste is thin, bready malt, spice, cereal, touches of light roast and cocoa. Finish is subtle roast malt, whole wheat, bread.

TXBadger (1421) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2014
This beer pours a cloudy dark reddish brown. On the nose I get some oak, some floral notes, and yeast. Palate is lots of wood, cedar and oak, not overly balanced, lots of bready notes from the malt.

Leighton (11319) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during the Gunnar Tasting - London. Thanks to Fergus for this one. Pours clearish red-brown with a creamy, beige head. Dusty cocoa on the nose with accents of toasted bread and tangy leather. Light sweet flavor with leathery fruits, faint rubber, dirt, touches of maple. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly tangy on the finish with more old leather predominating. Alright, novel; so THIS is what an oaked farmhouse mild is like - I had always wondered.

Pours rich muddy brown red. Smell is lightly smoky and rich. Taste is much Milder. Thin watery and lightly smoky from the oak I guess. A bit light on carbonation.

Deep brown in color... Aroma of oak, mild brown malts... flavor is extremely mild and sessionable, light effervescent mouthfeel, mild brown malts, prevalent notes of wood and oak... Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
