While visiting Wild East, Dan saw and immediately ordered Temperance, a dark mild, which he also brought back home for some malty goodness.
STYLE: Dark Mild
AVAILABILITY: 16oz Cans, Draft (Limited)
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can, website, and Untappd.
Deep, dark amber to light brown with a tan head.
Toasty bread with a hint of roastiness and some light toffee notes.
A malty blanket for your palate, with many of the bread-related notes continuing with toffee coming back on the finish.
Despite being a sub-4% beer, it has a good body/weight that it brings to the mouthfeel.
I think I could have a few of these at any time of day, save for being outside in the heat or sun. Food-wise, my mind went for British flavors or Shepherd’s Pie, but perhaps also a simple steak or some lamb dishes would slay and maybe even some coffee cake.
Thank you so much to Joel for joining me on a mini-crawl to Wild East and other locations!
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
