4.03/5 rDev +13.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
On-tap, served in a shaker pint.
A- 1-finger of tan head that sustained itself throughout the glass. Deep brown body with dark red hues at the edges. Appeared to have light carbonation. Thick, foamy rings were left all about the glass.
S- A touch subdued perhaps. The best I can come up with was something of candied peanuts or beer nuts. A brown sugar or caramel with a definite nutty note.
T- Very rich out of the lower ABV, as a dark mild should. Initial thoughts were a lot of toasted malts. I picked up the sugary, nutty flavors noted in the aroma after a few sips. Clean finish.
M- Medium-light feel with a very dry quality and light carbonation. Pleasant enough.
O- We need more of these beers Stateside. Lower alcohol, rich and malty...if it weren't for a drive home, I'd drink this all night. Time to find out if this is currently on the shelves....

3.78/5 rDev +6.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
3.9% ABV, 25 IBU.
Purchased as part of a mixed 12 pack from BevCo.
Pours out to a deep mahogany, clear, forming a tall creamy light tan head with excellent retention and beautiful lacing. Carbonation is moderate. The nose is of toasted malt, slight milk chocolate, biscuit malt, grain husk, not much roast, not much hop presence. Mouthfeel is clean, watery, crisp, light bodied. The taste opens with a subtle hop flavor, followed by grainy biscuit notes, a touch of roasted malt (probably chocolate malt) and toasted nuts, a bit of chalk, very mild bitterness. Cleanly fermented. Easy to drink. Some slightly fruity esters in the middle.
This is an easy drinking mild ale, as it should be. Low in alcohol, clean and tasty. I would buy it again if I wanted something low in ABV but with plenty of flavor. Certainly better than most low ABV beers out there.
