From Ravens Brewing Company in Abbotsford comes their “English Dark Mild”. The beer pours a deep chestnut brown colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of roasty malts, chestnuts and earth. The flavour is of roasted malts, caramel, nutty, earthy and mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 4% with an IBU of 20. I am very happy to see this style of beer pop up in British Columbia as the alcohol content comes in low but the flavour is high.
Commercial Description: Deep toffee and malt aromas, with hazelnut and dark roast undertones, our English Dark Mild is hardy yet sessionable. Delicate UK Fuggles hops add a hint of grassy earthiness, giving this brew a more traditional characteristic. With lunch or after work, the mild is a true everyday beer.
Food Pairing as Per the Brewery: Gouda, roasted pork, split pea soup, herb crusted lamb
