COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brown, or dark mild, is a favorite of the brewer. Lots of malt character but no extra sweetness makes this a flavorful brew. Using Marris Otter as the base malt and all English hops make this a true to style brown.
2011 GABF Gold Medal winner for English-Style Mild Ale.

Skid Mark Brown. Tap at PP OB. Clear reddish brown with a one finger light beige head, and fair retention. Aroma of nutty toasty malt, a bit of vanilla. Flavor has some fruity English yeast and nutty, toasty malt. Even some light coffee notes are present. Not much sweetness, dry finish with bitterness peaking at a 2ish. Moderate prickly carbonation with a light body. Solid brown. 7-3-8-3-14--3.5

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Draught Amber-red with a whitish rim. Lighter and intenser darker coloured malts, chocolate or ’brownies’, nutty, bready and mineral wafts. Dullish sweet, with non-bitter cacao, and some interesting leafy/autumnal flavours. Light body, spritzy to fizzy carbonation, bit empty finish. Well... light.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours with a clear chestnut-brown body with a small, just off-white head. Aromas are nutty, maple, brown sugar and light chocolate. All malt. Flavors are nutty, almond, mildly roast, brown sugar, decently dry, creamy, somewhat substantial carbonation. Really solid brown!

Draft. Wow, appetizing name for this one. Brown in color, as you’d expect, with a small light tan head on top. Nutty aroma with sweet caramel and a touch of earthy hops. The flavor is good, but could stand to be more assertive. Maris Otter malt base evident with nuts, caramel, and cocoa. The mouthfeel is a bit watery, and carbonation is average. Solid attempt at the style overall despite the palate shortcoming.

The appearance and palate on this one were quite nice for the style. Really enjoyed that element. However, the aroma was pretty tight, and didn’t give you much. Not a lot going on, really. The taste was better, but not by much. The flavors were interesting, as you got this robust, almost dirty flavor to it, and not much nutty characteristic. It was different, and not necessarily in a good way, but not really in a bad way either. This beer was just one that left me shrugging. Weird beer. Not my favorite brown, but I certainly wouldn’t complain if it was put in front of me.

Clear brown color/ ivory head. Nice nutty, caramel aromas. Light roasted malt, nutty, mild caramel flavors-- thin mouthfeel.

marcus (6436) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 21, 2011
On tap at City Beer. Pours dark brown with a thin off-white head and a treacle aroma. There is a watery molasses flavor with a dry finish. Not up to this brewer’s standards.
