Style: English Pale Mild Ale

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Classic English Mild Ale named for a British Admiral. Every time this 18th century sailor went to sea he went in a doomed ship that sank due to beastly weather. The Foul Weather Jack is a dry, roasty, session beer, with chocolate notes. It is equally satisfying on a hot summer day, or a cold rainy night at sea.

Saint Benjamin "Foul Weather Jack"
on tap via handpump @ Dawson Street Pub, 22 May 2015

Foul Weather Jack's mostly clear russet brown body is topped by a frothy head of light tan. The head retention is quite good, and the lacing spreads across the glass like torn sheets. The nose is limited in comparison to the flavor but both offer a range of caramel and nuttiness within the malt. It's subtly fruity with a suggestion of raisin. The limited bitterness perfectly balances the malt leading to a drying finish with hints of residual malt and fruit. Served via hand pump, the moderate carbonation level and medium light body leave it remarkably smooth across the palate. It's a unique and interesting beer with richness and depth despite its "English" nature, proving that not everything needs to be loaded with hops and strength to make it great. Having just returned from England I can say that it clearly ranks well amongst the best of 'em. Not to be missed!
