Served in a 5oz taster glass at Tighthead 4/29/12. Thanks to the Dood for making the trek with me!

A: Served a cloudy carmel brown. Quite tarnished. One finger of light khaki foam sticks around for a bit before melting down to a lace leaving collar.

S: Toasty malt..and light hops.

T: See above. Lovely flavors here. Toasted carmel malt and British hops. Frigging killer!

M: Smooth and quaffable with a tiny bit of British grit. Excellent.

O: Loved this. Next time, I hope they have it on cask to compare.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the TH tap room.

Bring on the milds, baby! This one pours a hazy sienna topped by a half-finger of dirty off-white foam. The nose comprises light-ish roasted malts, nutmeg, light clove, black pepper, oak, walnut, dark greens, and even a bit of light cocoa. This may be the spiciest- and sweetest-smelling mild I've ever encountered. ...I like it. The taste holds notes of light coffee, dark greens, black pepper, very light brown sugar, oak, light pine, light wheat, and grass. Yeah, the spices from the nose mostly vanish once the tongue gets involved, but what's left still works pretty well without them. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and something akin to a very mildly chewy feel. Overall, a touch overcarbonated for my tastes (let's get this on that beer engine, boyos!), but beyond that a pretty tasty little mild. Right on.
