paiste2002 (186) - Saugus, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Nitro at Tony’s Darts Away. Pours dark ruby red with a creamy white head that lasted all the way down. Aroma is nutty, roasted grain and pumpernickel bread. Flavor is somewhere between an English mild and a brown ale, roasted malt, bread and hazel nuts. Finish is malty and slightly bitter at the very end. This is a very nice beer! Oh and it’s about time someone had the balls to brew a nice session beer. High five Eagle Rock!

Marheb (6238) - Montréal, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2016
(En fût à Glendale Tap): Première pinte dans ce qui semble être le O’Brien’s de Glendale, très homy disons. Le liquide est superbe avec une mousse qui colle et persiste. En bouche c’est gracieux, amplement moelleux et sec au bon moment. Mélasse, noisettes, canneberges et coco composent principalement le profil. Superbe.

3.3

Tap at Spring Street bar, LA. Stout pour. Pretty standard light stout aroma. Taste: light stout, watery, medium sweet bitter. Light sweet aftertaste.

3.5
blipp (9782) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Draft. Pours deep brown with an off white head. Toffee and lightly roasted malts, cocoa powder, mild bitterness, and just a bit of residual sweetness, but not much. Solid and easy drinking.

3.6
RafeAU (628) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Tasting paddle. this is one of the few non-homebrew milds I’ve had. Great roastiness but clean ferment, almost like a schwarzbier at first, but has some english yeast notes as it sits. Nitro is great for first minute or two then gets a bit flat.

3.4
tiong (7669) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Draught @ Mohawk Bend, Los Angeles, CA

Pours pitch black with a massive foamy white head. Aroma of roasty malts, chocolate, mild toasty notes. Taste is smooth, malty and toasty. Finish is smooth and slightly sweetish. Okay.

3.4
lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Draught @ Mohawk Bend, Los Angeles, CA. Nitro. Pours a black colour with a small thick head. Aroma of roastiness, some biscuit and chocolate. Flavour of roastiness, licorice, dark chocolate and mild bitterness. Light bodied. Smooth but undeniably mild, as it should be.
