3.43/5 rDev -10%
Reviewed on 07/03/2009. On nitro-tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light brown with a thick tan creamy head. Aroma of sweet malt and fruits. Flavor is bitter initial with lots of toasted malt. Drinkable but not a lot of flavor or body (maybe that's the nitro though).

Served on-tap at the brewpub.
A: The ale is a syrupy caramel brown color, a lighter brown color that could pass for copper. The head was off-white and not long for this world.
S: For being a mild, the ale has a pretty strong aroma. Toffee and caramel mix with molasses and some citrus hops.
T: The taste profile, like most milds, is far stronger than it should be. Toffee and light molasses really jump out of the glass. The toffee malt is sweet without a cloying side. A light hop bite and brown sugar see the beer away.
M: The warming malt profile is pleasant. Toffee sweetness makes this a sessioner.
D: I'd belly up to this one all day long. Another modest ale from Old Forge.

On tap before it received it's permanent name---had it while it was still "Name that Beer".
A-Slightly hazy copper with a thin off-white head that reduced to a thin ring and left spotty lace.
S-Roasted caramel/toffee notes combine with an earthy aroma. Malt and hop bill swirl together and are nicely balanced. A bit of dry oak in the back.
T-For such a "light" beer a big dose of toffee and brown sugar malty sweetness. Nice balancing dry earthiness in the finish that brings the style features togehter.
M-Medium bodied with a nice drying finish and substantial lasting flavours.
D-I am a sucker for a well made, flavourful low ABV beer that keeps things interesting enough to be a true session beer. This one hits the mark. Well done, tasty and solid.

On tap at Old Forge on 2/7/09.
A - Hazy copper-colored body with mild carbonation and slim off-white head that transformed to a patchy film and left no lacing to report.
S - Dark, burnt caramel malt with toffee notes, brown sugar and maple. However, there is also a blend of toasted grains and cereal malt. In contrast to the malt character is a touch of earthy hops with hints of fresh herbs.
T - Big malty flavor with burnt caramel, toasted grains, bready and cereal malts followed by an underlying brown sugar sweetness in the middle. Finishes with a surprisingly moderate earthy, herbal bitterness.
M - Medium bodied with full carbonation and syrupy texture. Pretty sharp bitterness in the finish for a mild ale.
D - Just as the name implies, this is a nice sessionable mild English ale. Enough said.
