Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: elNopalero on 02-14-2012

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: Beer pours a dark brown body with a creamy tan head. The head leaves a tiny bit of lacing on the glass as it fades.

S: The smell sort of reminds me a weaker Tumbler. It has a bit of nuttiness and some chocolate.

T: Like the smell, I get a good amount of nuttiness, a faint bit of cocoa and a tiny bit of sweet malt.

M: This beer is beyond smooth. There is a good amount of creaminess and has a tiny bit of tingle down my throat.

O: This reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada Tumbler. It is pretty tasty and is easy to drink. This makes for a perfect low alcohol beer for the winter.

Refrigerated longer than the recommended 24 hours, and served in a tulip glass around 45 º and allowed to warm up.

Tawny light brown, glinting orange in the light saturated colors with minimal lace but an ample head of foam the color of manila folders. Second pour the retention is better, it lasts a good 5 minutes.

Pleasant aromas of toasted nutty malts, and dry american oak. Something slightly yeasty but nondescript, surfacing after the dominant oak.

Light bodied, completely to style in this case, with plenty of lasting oak flavors. Subtlety is the name of the game. Dry and woody, flavorful with some flashes of green hop traces but minimal bitterness. Very smooth and refined. A very unique rendition of a Mild Ale, and something I wish was on cask locally. Hope someone out there can pull strings to make it happen!

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.
