Kamloops BC’s Red Collar Brewing has released an English Mild Ale with a very light 3.8% alcohol. From the bomber bottle this sessionable, summer beer pours as a deep chestnut brown colour topped with a thin finger of head which leaves a smidgen of lacing on the glass. An aroma of cherry, chocolate and an English style hop. Reminiscent of a mild brown ale the Red Collar Mild has a surprising amount of body in the aroma given its light stature. In the flavour the beer is light bodied and crisp. Light chocolate notes along with a toasty-malt characteristic builds up front as a hop-bitterness grows at the back of the tongue. Well hopped, big flavour and a very sessionable stature the Red Collar is a great blend of drink-ability and flavour.
