English Dark Mild Ale |  4.30% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/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.

Served cask style at The Madison Pour House in Albany, NY.

Served in a tulip, this beer is a chocolatey, dark brown-black. Small tight head present that lasts a good amount of time.

Light but pleasant roasted malt aromas. True to the dark mild style.

Tastes include light, pleasant roasted malts, nutty flavors, and toast.

Light cask-style carbonation, with a light to medium body. Feels really good to drink down. Very sessionable.

One of the best cask beers I've had. This style obviously really works.

Served on-tap at Drop Off Service in New York, NY

A: Pours a clear yet almost opaque very dark amber in color with some light amber and garnet red highlights along with a light amount of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall frothy beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted malts with some very light notes of chocolate.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of roasted malts with some light notes of chocolate and just a hint of dark fruit (plum). Light amounts of bitterness in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: This beer is very easy to drink, is enjoyable, and as a result of the low ABV definitely a session beer. I really enjoy this style and there are just not too many options in it, especially made in the US - glad I found this one since I started doing full reviews (I previously "Had" it at a cask festival in late 2011).
