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: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick, murky texture. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. OK lacing.

S: A decent aroma with a good amount of hops, chocolate, and malt. Very subtle.

T: Tasted of hops (a medium amount), chocolate malt, and a bit of malt. While the flavor here does have some good aspects, it's a little on the thin side (this might be due to the character of the style). Could have been better.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An OK beer, but nothing particularly special. Not undrinkable, but not awful either.

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.
