COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colorado Springs was founded as a resort town in the pristine wilderness. It attracted so many English tourists, many of whom had helped finance the town’s railroad, that it garnered the nickname “Little London”. In tribute, we present this English Mild. A most refreshing brown ale, it’s malt-forward with dried fruit aromas that lead to a light body of roasted coffee, chocolate and walnut. It’s a true session beer to start your retreat.

Ernest (6745) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (graham cracker, caramel, toasted grain, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of grape juice, gum, vanilla, tobacco. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Despite a few undesirable things in the aroma, it’s suitably malty with some nice details. It’s kind of bland and flabby in the mouth, so not as much fun to drink as to sniff. Overall ok though.

When I first tried this beer, which was from a less than 24 hr old growler, I was told the name/style, I was very excited as ’mild’ is one of my all time favourites. Everything about this beer was very close to the mark from the aroma, appearance, mouthfeel, and taste. It has a good, lightly toasted, and very slightly nutty flavour, very low hop presence (which for me could be a bit higher in aroma/taste). I found it to be quite well balanced and enjoyable to drink. Then I came to find out that I was drinking a full-fledged brown ale named as a mild (a 5.2% MILD!). That didn’t diminish my enjoyment of the beer, I was actually a little impressed that they hid the extra 1.5-2% ABV so well. As a full brown, I would like a little more out of it, though such as the flavour. I think it would stand up to being a little bolder in the toasty/bready area.
