A good example of the style with excellent balance between malt, hops and strength. Works really well in the bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi - transparent bronzed brown color with a rapidly dissipating film of a white head. Barely any lacing stuck around the glass.
The smell had a decent sweet maltiness about it with an underlying cooked chocolate.
The taste was somewhat sweet through the malts with a light malty aftertaste leading to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat pretty light on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation was good but mainly kept it’s distance from how it felt on my mouth, in other words, this was exceptionally smooth.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good mild ale that I would have again preferably with its respected food.
