Tasting impressions #68: Mole Gap Mild

April 19, 2014

This 1038° mild finished at 3.3 per cent abv and was mashed high at 74°C. Newcastle Dark Ale M03 yeast is neutral and crisp, no yeasty flavours after six days from bottling. A bit lighter in colour than a German dunkel and the yeast looks like it will take a bit longer to drop bright:

Two days earlier in a better light:

Sweet and malty but with a hint of saltiness from the Pontefract cakes. I detect the rye too. Two days ago there was some smoke in the taste but not so sure about that now. Basically a fancy version of Finnish kotikalja, a malty low-alcohol table beer. Thirst quencher.
