Dark red pour with a thin wispy head. Aroma is super light and hard to pick up. Light mouth. Aroma is full of grain. Taste is bready. Cereal, biscuit & grains with a slight bitter finish. Very easy to drink. Caramel and some toffee round this out.

On tap at the Kedzie brewery. What a pleasant surprise for the middle of an afternoon! Pours a toffee brown with small but lasting beige head. Aroma is much stronger than I suspected, with toffee, caramel and malts. Taste is slightly sweet with a trace of hops bitterness in the clean long finish. Body is light to medium with perfect carbonation. By far the best and most flavorable low ABV beer I’ve tried. I will make sure to revisit this one on my next trip to the brewery.

Growler shared by Thorpe429 and Amyliz4. Thanks Mike and Amy! This kicked off a nice day of brewing.
A: Toffee brown color with orange highlights and a half inch of light tan head. The head had good retention and left some nice lacing on the glass.
S: The aroma is fairly weak, with some subtle hints of toffee and malt in the English style.
T: The beer is very tasty and flavorful, with enjoyable light roast and a very mild bitterness. The beer is just ever so slightly sweet. This is a really well done brew. Workingman is my first experience with English dark mild ale, so I have no other point(s) of reference, but this seems like a great genre of beer that I will be returning to as soon as possible.
M: Light, thin body, which comes as no surprise with a 3.5% alcohol session beer.
D: Very drinkable. I could throw back several pints of this pretty easily.

A nice malty beer. Holds to its description with toffee and caramel. Pretty heavy relative to the low alcohol content. This beer could have supported more alcohol pretty easily.

Draft pours clear rich brown, tight off-white head and great retention. Aroma is serious toffee, caramel, and malt. Very mild hop profile. Taste is incredibly rich given the abv... toffee, caramel, toast, and biscuit. body is medium/full, rich and mildly frothy, medium carbonation, dry toffee finish. Overall, this was the highlight of my visit to Revolution! A well made mild is a rare and delicious thing.
