3.88/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Appearance: This beer poured a slightly hazy, golden copper color with a coarse white head. The foam dissipated quickly until only a thin skin of bubbles remained on top of the brew. A light bead provided enough bubbles to sustain the layer. There was no lacing.
Smell: Right after the pour, there was a strong hit of citrus hops that was much stronger than I expected from this style. The hops remained after the beer had settled down, but they were joined by some warm sweet malt, light vanilla, hints of spice, caramelized sugar, and the lightest touch of fruit. It turned out to be subdued and nicely balanced.
Mouthfeel: Thin in the mouth, but overall smooth with hints of lively carbonation.
Taste: Like the aroma, there were more hops present in the flavor than I was expecting. They dominated completely, being citrusy and slightly herbal. Sweet malt and vanilla rose up to counter the bitterness in the middle and some sharp fruit made an appearance on the finish. Overall, hoppy and dry.
I've had a few milds in the past, but always on cask; I've never had one from the bottle. They were much less hoppy and, dare I say, milder than this version. I would have pegged this as a pale ale if I didn't know what it was beforehand. Still, a very tasty brew that I enjoyed.
Thanks for the bottle, Hero27
