Notes: This was created to bring the world of English Mild Ales together with American Ambers. We use 9 different types of malt together to provide you with a unique experience while still maintaining a nice balance of flavors. The result is a copper colored brew with a big white head. Aromas of caramel malt complexity and light berries come through on the nose. The flavor profile is incredibly smooth, with more caramel, along with a touch of biscuit followed by a clean finish.

Clear, dark amber body under a large, but fast fading, off white head with a fair amount of lacing. Malt driven aroma showcasing caramel and light toast. Taste takes on a bit more of an edge as noble hops become more distinct, adding a spicier, herbal quality. Smooth, medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel.

12 ounce can poured into a nonic.

L: Dark copper, fairly clear, plenty of bubbles rising, half inch off-white fluffy head with medium retention.
S: Moderate strength, malt forward, light caramel and bread with slight citrus/fruity hop aroma.
T: Malt forward, bread, grain and corn, restrained bitterness with herbal hop flavor. Medium sweetness that drys for a clean bitter finish.
F: Light -medium in body, drying and somewhat crisp, moderate carbonation, finish is drawn out a bit but not long.
O: Enjoyable.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Very light fluffy khaki colored head, making just nearly three fingers of almost creamy whipped up looking height. Dark brownish copper like red body, with a sense of opacity but not entirely, some ring lacing and a few clumps give some good retention and appearances in the looks department. Great looking brew.

Soft but subtle nose. Touches a soft biscuity like aroma of cookie dough, sort of oatmeal with touches of caramel sweetness in the air. Hints a little vanilla and cake like in the mixture but not a large nose. Quite nice though.

Palate takes the cake (almost literally). Real nice hints of creamy texture, giving a sense of sweet vanilla cake flavors. Mid palate fills up with great solid flavors. Rich caramel and a hint of toasty brown bread on first sip. Mild sense of hop earthy tones and an excellent biscuit to graham cracker caramel sweetness in the mix that his real nicely. Hints a soft bodied faint pine and milky sweetness as well.

Real good sucker for a simple amber ale, and this one has it with a few surprises on the palate.

Working my way through a 64oz growler filled at The Brass Tap here in Baltimore: Nice dark amber body with a fingers-worth of tan head. Mix of malt & hops on the nose. Malt forward & hops bringing up the rear on the tongue. Smooth drinking. An interesting experimental hybrid, but would probably be happier with an English dark mild.

Look: It pours deep amber with a tannish head. Head retention is excellent.

Smell: There are moderately strong caramel aromas with a low blueberry note in the background.

Taste: It has caramel flavors that are blended with berries. The most distinct berry is blueberry. There is a mild biscuit quality as the beer lingers on the palate.

Feel: It has a medium body and a malty balanced finish.

Overall, a nice caramel and berry beer that is easy drinking.

A delicious English Dark Mild Ale/American Amber. Quite complex with chocolate/toffee/dark bready malts paired with a kiss of floral/citrusy hops. Smooth, creamy, and highly drinkable.

Look: Dark, clear brown with amber highlights. Slightly under one finger of foamy off-white head.

Smell: Mild sweet, bready malt.

Taste: Mild bready malt and sweet chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Average body with high carbonation.

Overall: A very typical mild ale that doesn’t really stand out.

Clear light ruby with brown highlights, thin white head, not much retention or lace, but that's expected for the style
Aroma of raisins and dried cherries and apricots, hint of smoky earthiness
A bit tart. Dried fruit along with a bit of chocolate and smoked meat
Light bodied and low carbonation. Could definitely down a few with a hearty meal.
A really tasty beer meant for drinking a few over the course of an evening out at a bar.

Drank from can (couldn't find a date). Quite the outstanding English Dark Mild. If you like British session ales (pales, milds, bitters) this one will delight you. Highly recommend. Would love to find this on a properly done cask somewhere.

Cloudy brown with an amber hue, smell is very mild, tastes fantastic, super malty/biscuity and flavorful, definitely tastes much more English than American. The quintessential old fashioned pub ale, one of my new favorites.

Liquor store had it listed as an amber, and it's as strong as an amber, but it looks, smells, and tastes like a mild.

Smells very malty with mild chocolate and fruit. Tastes a bit more lively, with nodes of peat and toffee in the back end and a lingering finish of molasses. Complex for the style.
