COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
‘Dark Mild’ English style session beer with the ABV and color of an Irish Stout but a nuttier, softer mouthfeel from crystal and chocolate malts, and a finishing dryness from aroma hops. Brewed for drinkability to extract the maximum complexity and flavor from a relatively ‘light’ beer, warm fermented to accentuate dark fruit and roast malt notes. Conceived for cask and perfect served as a Real Ale. Hopped with Cluster and Perle. 29 IBUs. RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Dark meat barbecue plates, charcuterie, and any other unctuous dishes (this is a dry, palate cleansing beer with flavor strong enough to stand up to the food).

Draft at armsby abbey. Taste is dark malts with a slight roastyness and light fruitiness. Hops are what a surprise light and mild. I guess this is a good mild ale? It certainly is mild.

Lightly malty no hops tastes like Malta I used to drink as a kid growing up. I just wanted to get a mild ale rated for the achievement

On tap at Rattle N Hum during their Mikkeller single hop series event. Either Andy or Max (probably Andy) must have ordered this one. Pours a deep black with a thin white head. Coffee and roast. Roast, chocolate, toast. Very light and crisp. Long roast, long chocolate, roast and toast on the finish. Excellent stuff.

Tap at Rattle’n’Hum. An excellent mild in the classic English style. Medium body, caramel and bread flavors with just a touch of sweetness. Slight hop bitterness. Very quaffable. Easily the most authentic mild I’ve had in the States; good on Wandering Star for producing this gem. I hope they make it part of their year-round line-up.

Draft. Pours deeper brown with a beige head. The aroma has hazelnut sweetness, toast and light coffee roasty notes. The flavor is sweet and nutty with light toasty and roasty notes. Good stuff.

For my 1300th rating, how about something from this cool new little brewery? It is called a mild ale (a category I had not previously been aware of). I am not sure if this is typical of the style, but Mild at Heart was fairly roasty and made me think of a mellow porter or a light stout, with some cheesy tang. On draft at Rattle’n’Hum.

Cask at Get Real New York. Deep brown pour. Intensely chocolatey aroma. A little bit of leather as well. Palate is quite astringent but the flavour has a great mix of toffee, cocoa and pipe tobaco. A little bit of roastiness on the finish as well. Unusual, but quite tasty - at 4.3 it’s definitely good stuff and quite authentic.

Cask at Get Real NY. Pours clear brown, light coffee/chocolate malty aroma, light bodied, faint bitterness, easy drinking, very enjoyable.

Draft at Get Real NY Cask Ale Event with Linh, Andrew, Streets, and Brendan. A very solid offering from brewmaster Chris.
