English Dark Mild Ale |  3.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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.

2.98/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Undated bottle at 55 degrees into goblet
Aroma – muted oak sawdust
Head average (2.5 cm), frothy, light brown, rapidly diminishing to a thin layer
Lacing good
Body medium brown with a distinct red cast when held to light
Flavor mild, with no obvious hops. In fact, other than an oakiness, there is no defining flavor present. The malt is not obvious, nor is alcohol nor diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, dry, carbonation lively.

Very sessionable, but why? There is nothing to recommend the flavor except, perhaps, to an oak leaf roller. What JK is doing is commendable, but this offering does not make it for my taste.

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.
