Cask pint at the Tap Room. I swear this beer looked almost too good to drink. Pours a clear dark amber with that thin small bead head that coats the glass, typical of cask beers. Aroma is mild bread and nut shells. Taste is sweet caramel malt and buttered biscuits, maybe some maple syrup as well. Classic stuff.

8oz Draft A - Pours a clear copper with a one finger off white head. Ok lacing. S - Sweet bread. T - Sweet biscuit, roasted malts, light moasses without getting syrupy, and faint bittering hops. M - Light bodied. Smooth texture, but a bit watery. Mellow carbonation. Sweet finish that drys out quickly. O - Sweet but tasty. A sessionable Scotchish Ale.?

Pint at the taproom. It poured a hazy reddish/copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was bready and caramel that starts sweet and creamy with a hint of caramel. It was a medium bodied brew with a nice full and round mouthfeel. The taste was similar to the aroma and it finished smooth and clean with a lingering sweetness, very good.

Pint at the Tap Room. Pours copper orange with a finger of off-white head. Smells lightly malted, hints of toasted biscuits and toffee. Taste is a little sweet and a little bitter. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Schlafly 80 Schilling finishes with a touch of sweetness.

Draft at the Tap Room. Very good beer. I’ve seen this here several times and always wanted to try it, but never got around to doing it. Now that I finally have, I wish I would have got a growler of it. Something I’ll have to do next time.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Pint at the Tap Room. This pours clear and coppery. A one plus finger off white head. Thevnose is fruit from the hops, grain, and soggy malt. I taste the fruit first. The hops are subdued but nice. Malt is multi layered and includes a tiny dash of cocoa. Cinnamon is noted and is also light. Alcohol seems ablittle higher than listed. This is tasty, subtle, and nice. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 Originally rated at the 2011 Schlafly Hop in the City festival and I wasn’t wowed. UPDATE: Tasted again at the 2014 Schlafly Hop In The City festival and I was wowed. It poured a clear deep amber colour with weak white foam. Great caramel/toffee malt focus, hint of roasted grain, low flowery and earthy hop balance. Slight residual sweetness, maybe a hint of beneficial diacetyl, faintly fruity ale yeast esters. Tasty and 100% true-to-style, reminiscent of English Mild Ale, my favourite style of all. Medium body, well-rounded mouthfeel, great malty aftertaste. I had it on forced CO2 draft as well as cask-conditioned. Needless to say, the cask version was even a little better and more complex. Surprisingly delicious, probably my favourite of the day. UPDATE: Tasted again on cask through Angram beer engine at the Tap Room, and must increase my rating yet again. A near perfect beer in every way, especially presented in this fashion.

Tasted 6/23/11. Pint from the Tap Room. Pours filtered with a bronze hue. Off white head. Malty caramel aromas. Medium bodied with a good malt roast. Faint hops. Solid effervescence. Crisp but smooth. A nicely rounded palate leaning towards the sweet and tangy. Good malt bill and fresh and tasty!

Sample at Hopfest 2011. Pours a burnt orange color. Aroma of peat, grain. Flavor is peat, molasses. Very watery. Not that impressed.
