vyvvy (4777) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2015
On tap at Elijah Ps - Pours tawny brown with an off-white head. The aroma is nutty, toasty, rich, smooth and a little creamy. It has a medium / light body that is crisp and has mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with dry nutty malt, toast, woody/paper, light spice and some astringency. The finish is a bit richer and nuttier with some light spice. Nice sessionable beer.

Strykzone (5817) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Pint at Elijah P’s. Dark brown and nice looking. Can that ABV be correct? This was bold for a mild. Coffee, nuts, and chocolate flavors. The body is smooth and rich. Just a bit of darker fruit and citrus. This one is a winner! Huge kudos for brewing such a beer with that low alcohol volume.

BlackHaddock (5091) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
18th March 2014: on-tap in the Hopping Pig, San Diego. The best beer on my first flight of four. Came a clear reddy/brown dark amber with a full beige crown. Malt notes fill your nose and mouth with chocolate being the strongest noticeable, caramel and toffee follow closely behind. This isn’t a sweet brew though, it is balanced with a fruity, piney hop undertone that stops the malts running away with the brew. Tasty and unexpected in San Diego, glad I came across it.

Brigadier (3290) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2014
On tap in San Diego (CA)
$3.00 for a world class mild ale that serves as the base for a beer I have been dying to try for years? People in San Diego truly are spoiled when it comes to choice. A mild ale that would put almost any in England to shame this has a little bit of a West Coast attitude as well.

Aroma / Appearance - A chestnut base is as rich as the inside of a peanut butter Buckeye. Absorbing all light, it is paired with a pleasing dusty head. Nuttiness lingers in the air with the smell of gentle hops that bind together the aspects of everything a mild ale should be.

Flavor / Palate - The feel of fresh summer iced tea hits the tongue with a refreshing presence. It is tough not to just drink the entire thing in a few sips and order another. The creamy mouthfeel progresses towards a mild bitter conclusion rich in flavor while still delicate enough to be sessionable. If this is the base for Red Poppy I can not wait to crack open a bottle.
