Growler picked up today at the brewery.

Served cool into an imperial pint glass.

Light brown in color with good clarity and thick long-lasting head.

Aroma is very mild with just a little sweetness and a hint of roasted malt.

Flavor is mildly sweet, kind of like a milk stout but much lighter in body and not as big on the roasted malt. A little caramel and some milk chocolate.

Body is light and carbonation is just right coming from the growler.

Overall a really great sessionable dark beer. Mild and easy drinking but not low on flavor. There should be more "light" beers like this one available in stores.

A must try at Dry Dock, this is a great mild dark ale. Rich brown color with creamy white head. Toasted darker bread aroma with some nut and zippy spice.

Flavor is simple and delicious. Toast, nuttiness, some faint apples and a good earthy and herbal spice on the end. Roasty. It is very good.

Easy drinking. Darn good beer, darn good mild

Apparently Dry Dock won a silver at GABF last year for this beer. This was dark in color and had a nice malty smell and flavor. Super easy to drink and for some reason I found the idea of a super low alcohol beer as very cool. I could have drank three or four of these in a sitting.
