This brown, or dark mild, is a favorite of the brewer. Lots of malt character but no extra sweetness makes this a flavorful brew. Using Marris Otter as the base malt and all English hops make this a true to style brown.

Zymurgeist2 (2152) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Draft at Pita Kabob in Visalia (W Akers). Rich malt aroma. Chestnut brown with white head that lingers as a collar of minuscule bubbles. Taste is caramel with a backing of chocolate. There is a moderate amount of burnt aspects in the second half of the flavor - an odd malt as it is more than just roast - perhaps something off if kettle caramelization was used? Finishes quickly and a light mouthfeel.
