Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 10-22-2012

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.

A: Pours a chocolate brown/ruby red color. A pathetic bubbly white head forms and vanishes in a second with no lace. From the look, there seems to be almost no carbonation to this at all.
S: Mild oak, smoke, and vanilla in the nose. Followed by an astringent, almost metallic aroma. A strange acidic twang.
T: Ug, no better here. Very mild oak and vanilla flavors. Burnt toast. Astringent with a metallic tiny flavor. Again, a strange acidity. Not good.
M/D: To say this is light is generous. So paper thin, and hardly any carbonation here. Not something I care to come back to or finish.

After a very surprising beer in RU-55, I follow it up with this. I remember loving this beer when it was not "farmhouse." The original version was great, especially on cask. This is a thin, unappealing beer that has no business in the English mild or farmhouse styles. A complete mess.

deep amber in color, finger of head with nice retention. smells of funky yeast, chocolate, raisins, oak. the flavor is nutty with hints of oak, vanilla.. a very mild tasting ale. high carbonation, light in body, slightly tart. excellent sessionable ale with a creamy mouthfeel.. very flavorful.

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....

A - Dark brown with ruby highlights and a thin tan head.

S - Nutty malt and chocolate with some oak. As it warmed the oak became fairly dominant.

T - Nutty with cocoa and some oak. As with the aroma the oak becomes very powerful as it warms and kills the great mild ale that once existed.

M - Light bodied and smooth with oaky tannin.

D - The base beer seems like a great mild but the oak becomes overpowering as it warms.
