- My Rating: [D-], I gave it a (1.7 of 5) on Ratebeer.com
Stock Ale (golden ale) – Mill St. Brewery, 5% ABV, 341ml., (Toronto, ON, Canada)
on the back of the bottle:
“Mill Street Stock Ale is a golden export-style ale made from only malt and hops, no fillers or adjuncts. The malt’s natural sweetness is perfectly balanced by the bitterness derived from the hops.”
- Style: (golden ale) Blond Ale
- Taste: Boring one note sweet liquid barley malt
- Where I got it : Legacy Liquor / Vancouver
- How much: $15 CAD (after 10% off) – 6 x 355ml-ish, September 2012
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: don’t waste your time
Visual: (seasonal sampler 6-pack). Pours clear golden without much head, half ringed retention, slow steady singular streams.
Nose: liquid sweet barley malt. (lvl-4)-pungency
Attack: crisp, subtle CO2 fizzy
Mid-palate: barley grain (lvl-4-sweetness), corn, liquid barley malt
Finish: trace tanginess, basic flat barley malt sweet finish.
Summary: Is there a slight citrusy component or am I imagining things? Likely the latter, this one is extremely BORING. Barely any body and very one note. DWYT = Don’t Waste Your Time, use it for cooking.
