COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mason’s 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.

JStax (3073) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Cask pour. Pours a clear brown with a beige head. The aroma is fairly dull with just a touch of biscuit and caramel coming through. Sweet and carrot cake notes in the taste. Light in body and with low carbonation.

Huhzubendah (2615) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 7, 2014
On draft at Churchkey in D.C. light mahogany body with russet tinges. Aromas of chocolate, malt, bread. Some nutty, earthy character in the flavor. Mild dose of chocolate. Nice amount of flavor packed into a low abv brew. Good stuff.

Draft at Mad Fox. Pours clear copper brown with a fizzy off head. Tastes like burnt bitter coffee, root vegetables, burnt toast, dark burnt chocolate. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet roasted malt and burnt toast.

DCLawyer (1429) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
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 (3691) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2013
There’s 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 wasn’t 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)

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
Velkyal (296) - 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!

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 6/20
Westchesterco (985) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Appearance cola brown color with slight white head. Aroma hard to detect taste coffee flavor with medium to full body
