Mitten Mango Gold
From notes. This one was enjoyed at the MGB Summer Beer Fest 2017. The pour is a darker golden orange with a thick ring of white head and a good lace left behind as it vanishes. The aroma is pretty good. There is a lot of fruit here. It’s very tropical and tart. There is a distinct funk from the kettle sour, but the amount of fruit actually works with it. The flavor is much of the same. Tropical and fruity with a lingering funky sour and a light juice on the back end. I like the amount of flesh, but I wish this was a cleaner sour. The mouth feel is a little heavier than medium body with a light carbonation and a lingeringly funky finish. This is decent for sure. 7 4 7 4 15

Mitten Peanuts and Cracker Jack Porter
Enjoyed on tap at the Meanwhile in Grand Rapids, MI to start off an east coast road trip. I actually am not sure if this is the one I had, but it’s close so I’ll add it anyway. Huge hazelnut notes and was dry, I didn’t mean to but I had multiple of these since it was so damn good. Would have again.

Mitten Peanuts and Cracker Jack Porter
Excellent peanut aroma and taste. Roasted malt and hops were not evident. Cracker jack was an unnecessary gimmick.

Mitten Peanuts and Cracker Jack Porter
Pours a dark brown with a thin head. Aroma is peanut, chocolate, caramel, and brown sugar. Flavor is sweet caramel, peanut, and chocolate. Has a soft carbonation. This is good, much better than expected. Except in the caramel malts, I don’t get the Cracker Jack, but the peanut is very well done.

Pours a brown color with an off-white foam head. Aroma is caramel, some nut, maple, and vanilla. Flavor is caramel and nut. Has some carbonation and a light, sessionable body. Nicely done. The maple character can be hard to pull off, but the Mitten Brewing Company does a nice job with it.

So the aroma has a bit of sweet to it, otherwise it’s just a light beer scent. Color is nice medium yellow. Mouth had no creamy feel, just a lager feel. Tastes like a bud or miller with a little more quality. Not a good representative of the cream. Tap at brewery
