Commercial Description

Our interpretation of an American mild. A smooth medium bodied session beer with a bright citrus hop aroma and finish.

    [Best served in a Shaker glass]

    The pour was a medium amber with a brownish hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that lasted a good while, slowly reducing to a thin cap and small collar with some good sheets of streaky lace.

    The aroma was of a floral hop, a grain malt and a mild earthy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a mild apricot sweetness.

    The taste was mildly bitter with a hint of orange from the start then progressed into a much bitterer hoppy flavor with a good citrusy grapefruit taste at the end. The flavor lasted a decent duration being mostly of a bitter citrus taste.

    Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body with a mildly dry texture and a moderate carbonation.

    Overall a fantastic Mild Ale with a really nice hoppy feel to it...

    N. Nose is big on citrus, everything else is just over powered by the hop aroma

    Well this one has sat in the fridge for quite some time. Was looking forward to this one since I got it, but it has fallen to the side due to the large amounts of trades that have been going on in the house. Pride
