English Dark Mild Ale |  3.50% ABV

Notes/Commercial Description:
English pub ale meets the French farmhouse tradition and American oak aging in this dry, drinkable farmhouse mild ale. Full-flavored, but brewed with enough restraint to be highly sessionable. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally conditioned.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured into a perfect pint. This one isn't a gusher like the last JK I opened, but it is overcarbed.

2.75 A: Fairly clear deep amber color. Four plus fingers of foamy tan head. Retention is poor and no lacing is left.

2.75 S: Nose on this isn't really strong, but I guess that's what I was expecting. However, it also isn't very interesting. The main focus is a dry woodiness with herbal notes. It's not bad, just kinda boring.

2.75 T: Taste is also lackluster. I'm not saying this because it is 3.5%, I'm saying that because it can't hold up with any of the other session beers I've had. Again dry woodiness, a few layers of herbalness and not much else. Maybe a touch of toastiness.

3.25 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation despite the appearance. Lightly creamy and smooth.

3.0 D: It's okay, but it's boring, even for a session beer.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter

A - Deep brown, certainly cannot see through. about 2 inches of white/ light brown head. head faded within a few minutes.

S - smoked porter?

T - very light. mild. smoked flavor.

M - watery. low viscosity

O - Its a replacement for water. Not suggesting this is anything close to BMC. Most likely won't ever purchase again. $8 smoked water? na....

Much darker than one would expect given it's low ABV, but the pour is a clear dark brown. It's dark enough that you don't see how clear it is unless it's held near a light source. The head is beige and a finger thick, but lacks in retention.

The smells are subtle, even with swirling. Strangely, smells of veggies. Some dark fruits, caramel, and smoke.

I don't care for the taste. Reminds me of watered down cola, though the carbonation is there. Earthy tastes, with hops most noticeable in the finish.

Very loose, watery feel. Light bodied despite the color. High carbonation, prickly feel in the swallow. Lingering bitterness.

It doesn't work for me. Tastes and feels lager-like, with the exception of the carbonation, nothing jumps at me.
