Darkly coloured and rich in appearance, this mild ale is brewed in the traditional style of British mild beers that are disappearing even from the pubs of London, England. Grand River Brewing has revived this traditional style of beer that is deep in colour but doesnt possess the harsh bitterness that many people associate with a darker beer. The pronounced creamy head welcomes you and is followed with a beautiful roasted barley flavour and a smooth creamy taste. This is a beer that just makes you want to have another and with being a mild, go right ahead.

UXO (1888) - CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
Appearance: clear amber-brown with one finger of creamy ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dark roasty malt, cocoa, vinous red berries, citrus. (7/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, mild bitter, light tart. (7/10) Medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky finish. (4/5) Wow, these guys are just nailing the traditional styles. First, an amber that I actually enjoy, and now a mild thats actually interesting even though its got an ABV that you could feed to a kid. (Well, almost. If it were at the end of hectic day, maybe, and you just wanted a few minutes peace and quiet) Despite the fairly forbidding colour, this thing is mild and approachable, and I hesitate to even call the body medium. Gotta be one of the best milds Ive ever had. (15/20)

b3shine (8746) - Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared by Ferris). Bottled on 2014/JUL/29. Looks good; a semi-transparent darker brown with light caramel head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty and lightly roasty/toasty. Tastes like it smells, but more robust, with a bit of chocolate as well. Pleasantly smooth on the palate. A good example of the style.
