A dark, mild ale thatís true to style. Light in body and hops and low in alcohol. A real session beer for any season.

Solid mild beer...Thatís what its supposed to be. Nice winter session beer ala wood burning stove... A bit of smoke on the nose, malt comes thru nicely clean and simple. Perhaps a bit aggressively carbonated. Intrigued to try in cask. Why is it OK to have session/ day time IPA s but for those of us who do not want to be constantly choked with hops this is a good choice.

Pours a finger of head on a dark brown body. The aroma is mild dark grain. The taste is soft grain, mild bitterness with a caramel finish. The texture is soft with light fizz. Itís enjoyable.

6.2% ABV. English Dark Mild Color tapped out a dark brown at about 28ļSRM. Nose is clean and tells you quite plainly to please notice the nice roasted barley notes which are rich, inviting and declare that the brewer bothered to start with an excellent ingredient. Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated and adjusted to be pronounced, which elevates the palate from soapy and syrupy to where it is light enough so that you can appreciate the flavor of a lightly toasted barley loaf. Quite crafty...no pun intended. Good bitters at the end but mild as promised. Goes on Favorites List

Tayeth (511) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2015
Geruch karamellartig, Geschmack leider nicht ganz so cremig, sondern relativ stark karbonisiert. Im Geschmack weniger Karamell, sondern eher Getreide.

kramer (5499) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear amber body with a small wispy beige head. The nose is toasty sweet malt with some light roast coffee and floral leafy hops. The flavor is a touch sweet, nice toasty and slightly husky malt, light bitterness on the finish. Light bodied easy drinking, soft carbonation. Decent effort.

Draft at PSA. Pours very clear reddish copper brown with a fizzy off white head. Tastes nutty, roasted, with a light buttery, earthy creaminess. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted grains, toast, and light nuttiness.
