English Dark Mild Ale

Status: Year round
ABV: 4.4%
Introduction date: June 2011

‘Dark Mild’ English style session beer with the ABV and color of an Irish Stout but a nuttier, softer mouthfeel from crystal and chocolate malts, and a finishing dryness from aroma hops. Brewed for drinkability to extract the maximum complexity and flavor from a relatively ‘light’ beer, warm fermented to accentuate dark fruit and roast malt notes. Conceived for cask and perfect served as a Real Ale. Hopped with Cluster and Perle. 29 IBUs.

RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Dark meat barbecue plates, charcuterie, and any other unctuous dishes (this is a dry, palate cleansing beer with flavor strong enough to stand up to the food). Also a refreshing alternative to your morning coffee! Kegerator required for the latter.
