Draft from backlog. Pours cloudy amber with off white head. Nose and taste of creamy sweet malt and light toast. Hints of cocoa. Lighter than medium bodied. BREWMUSKCLES (2671) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2012
creamy and mild with some dark fruit and a character of vegetable in the finish. mild in every way and soft with some toffee taking too much charge with this one. a bit of vanilla.

On tap at Harvest Moon as Elme’s Mild Manor. Pours a deep earthy brown amber with a thin white head. Sweet malt and toast, caramel on the nose. Roast and cocoa. Sweet and malty, nice roast comes through over some sweet dark fruit. Very nice. A bit boozy and warm which surprised me until I saw that it was 5.8% and not under 4% like I might expect from the style, but it still works. Long slow finish with more plum and prune, more sweet malt and warming alcohol. hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2012
On draft at the brew pub. Light brown color with a white head. Malty and nutty. Nice classic representation of a an English mild. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Half Pint at the Brewery as "Elmes Mild Manor". Pours in a pale coppery brown with some haze and a wispy whitish head. Aroma is a minimal waft of hoppy sugars and bland malt. Flavors are similar. There’s a strong, slightly metallic hop edge to a very generic, biscuit-like malt base. Yeast profile is minimal, thankfully. It’s too sweet, too heavy and too strong for the style. It doesn’t have that ragingly drinkability. Mediocre. rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Pint on tap in New Brunswick, deep amber/brownish appearance with little head. Aroma was malty and a little doughy but also strong nuttiness/caramel noted. Taste was well balanced between sweet maltiness and bitterness. Palate was a little rough with a decidedly bitter aftertaste. Unique beer- didnt really know how to categorize it as i was drinking it at the bar- but nonetheless a good experience.
