Nitro-tap at the brewpub. Listed on the chalkboard as "English Mild" but I think it fits the bill.

Pours a slightly hazy chestnut brown color with a slowly cascading off-white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of grainy toasted malts with hints of roastiness and lighter hints of nuts. As the beer warms the aroma sweetens a bit but still retains a good deal of toasted character.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. Surprisingly robust toasted malt flavors (surprising from the standpoint that it's a nitro-pour) kick things off. Slightly darker roasted malt flavors join in shortly thereafter before fading midway through the sip. Very light hints of leafy hop flavors fill the void, carrying through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a smooth thickness with soft carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall I was a big fan of this beer, a small beer that packs a decent punch. Definitely worth a shot.

Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown body with reddish hints to it and topped by a rather creamy, eggshell-colored head.

Smell: Mild aroma of dark caramel malts with a faint hint of grain. The mildness of the aroma is to be expected, as for what you gain in appearance and body you lose in aroma.

Taste: Caramel maltiness with a touch of roast and grain. Medium sweetness. Hint of sweet iced tea. Lightly floral with a mild hop bitterness. Lightly malt finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Mild carbonation. Very creamy mouthfeel.

Drinkability: A pleasant English mild, and a fine repeat quaffer to pair with the Gouda Cheeseburger (medium-rare).
