Overall a drinkable beer that is good for session drinking. The name doesn’t fit the beer in my opinion

Solid mild beer...That’s 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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Pratt St Alehouse. Pours a clear, deep reddish amber. Decent tan head. Nose is muted. Taste is bland, gritty chocolate, metallic, tangy. Odd. Some lemon juice in the nose. Body gains vegetables and sharp astringency. Minerally. Drinkable compared to the other beers on tap.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I drank a lot of this over the weekend. It pours a rich russet colour with a foamy light brown head. Aromas of caramel, chocolate and a faint spicy note. Taste, some caramel, a bit of chocolate, no one thing dominating. The body is just a hair shy of medium, yet the beer is very moreish. A very, very nice mild.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours nut brown with average, creamy beige head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and toasted malt, figs, cherries, earthy hops, and light hazelnut. Flavor is sweet malt forward with good supporting dark fruit esters and light hops; semi-sweet finish. Light body, low carbonation, and low warmth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Pratt Street - Dark amber/brown - a well-executed mild, with moderate mineral/burtonized character, light fruitiness, a bit toasty, with a small touch of toffee on the tail end - mostly dry, though, with some Biscuity notes on the tail end - tasty.

3.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bit unusual of an aroma- sorta sweet and sour. Pretty caramel color. Fast fading fizzy palate. Kind of a combination sour-bitter w a tinge of soapy taste. Cask version.
