COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Masonís Dark Mild is brewed with English malts and English Golding hops to produce a classic English beer style. The dark roasty and malt-accented beer, with hints of toffee and coffee, produces a great balance between juicy malt and earthy hops.

Draft at the brewpub. Brown with moderate white head. Mild (of course), with bread, grains, and hint of dark fruit. Light and smooth.

16oz pour at the brewery pours a clear dark amber with some creamy white head. Nose is very mild, cracker, some yeast, bread crust. Flavor has plenty of bread crust, whole wheat floured, mild fruit, plum, raisin. Clean finish. Sessionable.

Nuffield (3666) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Thereís a bonus point or two for any brewer willing to try this style and keep the abv below 3.5. It is doubly nice to have it on a handpull, though the palate wasnít as smooth as it should have been. Malty, caramelly, moderately rich notes. But in the end, it achieves the goal of a mild, which is to be drinkable but not special--a beer for every day. (on handpull, Church Key, Washington DC)

Velkyal (295) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Had on cask at the brewpub. Pours a beautiful rich auburn mahogany, topped with a creamy, sparkled, light tan head which lingers and clings to the glass for the duration of the pint (about three mouthfuls). Light aromas of toasted bread, cocoa and a trace of grass merely hint at the complexity to come. This is no mere pale malt with a touch of roasted grains for colour kind of mild, caramel, chocolate, tiny touch of coffee and the soft spiciness of English hops. Body is medium, belying the 3.3% abv. An excellent example of a much misunderstood and under-appreciated beer style. Bravo!

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts with herbal hops. The taste is roast, nuts, mild chocolate, herbal hops. Medium bodied, very drinkable. Well worthy of my 6000th rating!

Tap at the brewpub. Light brown pour with a small white head. Toffee and tea, and it finishes slightly dry. Okay.
