A yummy mid 4% session ale in the style of a traditional English mild. Not overly complex, nice middle of the road mouth feel, pretty color to look at, nice unobtrusive aroma, and easy to drink in quantity. This has been a "video game beer" for me recently. I can sit back and play away with out getting blind drunk and still have rich flavor.

Pours a deep chestnut brown with a tiny white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and earthyness. Taste is mildly sweet with the roasted malt dominating. Low carbonation gave this brew a medium mouthfeel. Overall this was decent but not a favorite.

4/17/10. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie poured into a pint glass. The pour is amber/red with lots of small suspensions and an ENORMOUS khaki head (pour carefully) that fades to a couple millimeters pretty quickly. The aroma is bready, grainy, biscuits, grass, and apples. The flavor is huge sour apple up front followed by bland apple and dry roasted grains and a slight hop bitterness. This is all one strange combination that Iím not digging. All followed by a light body and super high carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark amber color with a small canvas head. Notes of burnt biscuts, flowers, some fruit, and earthy mud. Off balance and grainy. Not very good.

12oz Bottle - Tasting at home last weekend. Bottle traded to me as an extra, forget who sent it, sorry. Iím not a bid Mild Ale fan, which shouldnít be reflected in my rating of the style, I know, but I wasnít very imressed with this beer. A thin beer that really didnít stand out much in any way. It wasnít bad, but I would go out of my way to try it again.

On tap at Resurrection Ale House. Pours a just hazed brown with a thin to medium sized tanned beige head. A bit of smoke, malt, and popcorn, more like caramel corn than movie popcorn, as itís not buttery, just warm popcorn, bready, . Curious. Medium bodied, light cola flavors, but a touch watery. Malty, but still laid back. Finishes with a slightly sweet toasty nutty bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose of earthy and nutty malt notes, a hint of cola and caramel, and a light hop presence. Pours darker amber with a beige lasting head and noticeable bubbly carbonation, slightly sticky lace. Toasty and nutty with a tangy hop presence and lingering pumpernickel bread flavors. Rather highly carbonated, malty flavors linger, but body remains light. Very easy to drink, and enjoyable. Very to style, I like milds.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling.
Pours a deep amber color with a foamy off-white head. The nose has a bit of caramel, a slight earthy bitterness, and a bit of pumpernickel. The flavor leans heavily on nuttiness and caramel from the malt. Mildly bitter, the hops give a little balance. This is clearly a mild brew, coming in almost watery in terms of mouthfeel. It has a light body leading to a slightly sour, dry finish. Itís a mild so I canít be too hard on it, but I really could go for a little more flavor here. Not the worst brew Iíve ever had, but it is a good reminder why I like a full flavored beer.
