On tap at Churchkey, getting some English dark mild ticks in today apparently. Beer is copper and clear with almost no head, no retention, no lacing, low carbonation.

This beer also has no aroma.

Beer is light in body and watery on the palate, it is mildly sweet and has a nice finish. This is a craft light beer. Probably not a repeat.

On tap at Pizza Port Ocean Beach a couple weeks back. Was going to have a Pliny but I saw this one (and a few others) medaled at GABF recently so I figured I better drink something actually brewed there.

Medium brown color with a nice layer of tan foam. Nutty aroma was nice and inviting, yet clean. I thought the taste was excellent. Lots of coffee notes, lightly dry, and not too sweet with a nutty balance. It seemed very drinkable and mild, and I can see why it's listed as a Dark Mild here although it said Brown Ale on the menu. Smooth with a medium body and appropriate carbonation.

Overall I was very pleased with this selection. A true session beer, and an excellent Brown Ale considering it's not a real favorite style of mine. Recommended.

Salty and metallic taste. The faint mustache of a head English style. The best feature is a mellow, creamy mouthfeel. The club soda flavor seems to overwhelm whatever roast flavors might be here. Slight touch of malt with a hint of hops. Brown, plain brown, in the pint glass. I'm not finding much to like, even in this low-alcohol style.

Gold Medal at 2011 GABF? I would love to have tried the competitors in this category.
