COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Surly Mild is a session ale brewed with pale ale, caramel and chocolate malts. Light brown in color with malt forward flavors of sweet toasted bread and cocoa are balanced by a crisp hop finish. A post holiday session ale? What’s a session ale you ask? It is a low alcohol beer packed with color and flavor, designed for a “session” of multiple servings

Malty amber pour with a slight head. Slight malty nose. Some slight lacing as well as I enjoy the beer. Toast, just a touch of hops and slight bitterness on the finish. Sessionable for sure.

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a clear deep chestnut brown one with a small light bubbly off-white top. It smells of wort and chestnuts ironically enough. Light sweet, something lightly roasted as well. Smells absolutely OK. It has lots of flavor for being a mild one. Not directly sweet, but it has some wort sweetness, lots of nuts and a little bit of chocolate paper. Light dry and woody finish. 03.05.2013

thewolf (10783) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2013
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph. Pours clear red with a small, frothy, white film head. Aroma has dusty chocolate, caramel, red apples. Medium carbonation, impressive full mouthfeel. Flavour has more dusty chocolate, caramel, soft apple zest. A bit too dusty and dry for me, but good for the ABV.
