3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Matt7215. Pours a deep thin brown with medium off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and some dried dark fruits. Flavor matches with the addition of a bit of sweetness. It also has that Grand River character that seems to be in all of their brews. Not sure if it is their water, yeast, or what, but they all have this certain metallic character to it. Not a bad character, but something I could definitely distinguish any of their brews with.
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 that’s actually interesting even though it’s 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 I’ve ever had. (15/20) fonefan (49403) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 21, 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.
