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.

This is the barrel aged cask conditioned sour version of Jester King’s Commercial Suicide, their low gravity English mild which I loved on its own right. But something about souring it made it just utterly fantastic in so many different, wonderful ways. High praise, and well-deserved.

This pours a dark ruby-brown with thin bubbles and an apparent low carbonation. Great aroma, very tart and bold, with an obvious comparison to balsamic vinegar that doesn’t do it justice. Tastes mouthpuckeringly tart, like sour cherries or blackberries, and just incredibly so. More tartness than a hoppy bitterness, which is in its own way refreshing. The souring process brought something to this beer which made it distinctive and in a class all its own. This is wonderful! I loved every sip and wish I could have had more.

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.
