On tap at Pony Bar HK. This batch is listed at 3.2%. The body and flavor seem a little off in that it's thin (even for this strength), a touch juicy, and there's a hint of acidity. There are, however, some lovely flavors of plum, caramel, toast and coffee. I might not order another, but I'll enjoy this one.

I think this is the first dark mild ale I've ever had. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a finger of tan head. Smells faintly of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Very light, almost too much so. A little thin. Paired well with food though. Just wish the flavors were a little bolder. Don't think I'd get this one again, but it wasn't bad. 7/10
