3.1
crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2011
440ml can. The store called it a "Dark Mild" but it is 4% and called "Finest Bitter". It pours a clear dark mahogany with a fizzy eggshell white head that dissipates with no lacing. The smell is mostly English hops (Goldings) with some cocoa and biscuit. The flavor is okay. Mostly biscuit, some hops and metal. The mouthfeel is thin but slightly "creamy". Just a typical session beer if you don’t wanna fill up.

2.7

Can. Pours clear brown with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is cookie and biscuit malt, light fruity esters and earthy hops. Flavor is malt forward with heavy hops and medium bitterness with a dry finish. Light body, warmth and carbonation.
