This is an excellent dark mild.

Dark red-brown copper, it has a medium off-white head slowly shrinking and a tiny bit of lace.

Aroma is nice, rich, caramelised toast, dried fruit, hint of brown sugar.

Taste is similar, a strong character of lightly earthy caramelised toast with some dark dried fruit. It is mild, no real bitterness being detected, but it is not very sweet, either, and it has nice, full character and body. Feel is nice.

It is highly drinkable, a very good session beer.

On-tap at Final Gravity.

A: Nutty amber body with a finger of dense, soft looking cream colored head that faded into a fuzzy film. Great sheets of lace were left down the glass after each sip.
S: Sweet and fruity nose with hints of apple juice and bready malts. Overall a light nose.
T: Mild flavors of crackery malt, lightly sweet fruit juice, biscuit dough and hints of red grapes. The finish is quick with a mild malty sugary aftertaste. Very low key and smooth.
M: Medium body, velvety carbonation, soft, smooth, clean, crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.
O: Anchor does it again. Tough style for people to get behind but this drinks extremely well. I wish more local breweries made beers like this.

16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac (Prado location) in Sandy Springs, Georgia.

Appearance: Dark amber-hued body, clear, and with a half-inch of off-white foam.

Smell: Fruitiness forward, apple mainly, followed by charred breadcrusts, roasted grain, and a little bit of dark brown sugar.

Taste: Roasty, toasty malts with a hefty pinch of brown sugar lands on the tongue simultaneously. Lightly herbal quality, just enough bitterness to be had. Scant fruitiness of apple, raisin. Lowly fruity, malty finish that leisurely dries out.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Now drink up and enjoy. (By that I mean, I will drink up and enjoy.) Sorta seemed like a Brekle's lite.

This pours a light amber tan with nice foaming. There’s a light malt aroma atop. Lots of caramel malt. Tastes sweet and malty. Nicely smooth and it can stand up to warming. Mild, easy-going, but not terribly exciting. I hate to say it but I don’t get what all the praise for this one (in the region, not on BA) is about.
