English Dark Mild – Ravens Brewing Company

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
