COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This accessibly great tasting beer, patterned after the English Mild style, is the lightest of the Motor City line up. But donít let the adjectives throw you, its deliciously flavorful. The label was designed by Artist Glen Barr and there is rock CDs to go along with the beer.

bottle. I bought it because of the name. Amber with small head. Flavor-wise, this is just a mess of off-flavors with metal and nuts. Not good.

ChiGuy68 (346) - Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear deep amber to copper hue with an extremely bubbly white head. No really, this sucker bubbled over like I had been shaking the bottle. Then a gentle pour still produced a glass that had mostly head. It had a musty malt aroma and a bitter spiced taste.

My favorite micro beer in Michigan. This beer is as close to perfect as beer can be.

12 oz bottle at a tasting on January 13. This thing is something else. I definitely wasnít too much of a fan, but here goes. The pour is a pretty dark brown, with not much light passage and a small dark tan head. There isnít much lace. The aroma has a lot of toasted male, and a light fruit, with maybe a little nuttiness to it. The flavor is quite similar, with maybe a little toffee bit in there. The mouth feel is really thin, and Iím not feeling the off aftertaste. Iím glad this was my only one of these

Onslow (1098) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Brown brew with white head. Aroma of mild sweet malt, caramel, tart fruit, old socks. Taste is mildly sweet malts at the start followed by a mish mash of tart fruit and a strong nut flavor. The nuttiness was quite good but it was lost in the fruit and sweet and funk. Finish is jsut rather bland. Not good.

2013-09-08. Aroma is malty with a dryish toasty aspect, vaguely English malt character. Flavour is malty, moderately bitter with an English character to it as in the aroma. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. I had a couple of these but it was just okay. Bottle at Cafe DíMongoís Speakeasy, Detroit

9/6/13. 12oz bottle thanks to Brent! Amber brown pour with a small khaki head. Toasty, nutty, biscuit aroma, reminds a lot of Fat Tire specifically. Flavor follows suit. Not bad.

HonkeyBra (3108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a murky brown color. Aroma of toffee, nuts, mild fruit. Flavor is similar, toffee, caramel, nuts. Itís subtle, unassuming. Very sessionable. I get it. Nice, low ABV. Tasty. Watery bodied. Smooth.

This is a rough one. Very fruity and bubbly. Like a champaign. Smells really fruity. This will be the last one of these I will ever have. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
