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

hazy amber, beige cream head lasts, low lacing. Watery mineral nose, earthy peanut butter. Flavor shows burnt sugar, light grain bitterness through toasty finish. Thin, caramelly profile with spritzy carbonation.

kramer (5346) - 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.

Overall a drinkable beer that is good for session drinking. The name doesnít fit the beer in my opinion

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.

GT2 (9241) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
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.

Velkyal (308) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2012
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.

On tap at Pratt. Pours a just clear caramel brown with a thin white head. Soft toast, roast, malt, cocoa. Medium bodied, chocolate and cocoa, yeast, roast, cocoa. Smooth and malty, cocoa, easy drinking with a light bitter finish.
