Beer of the Month: Queens English Mild Ale

Back to beer blogging! Two of this month’s selections came from Stonehammer Brewing in Guelph, Ontario.  Formerly known as F & M Brewery, Stonehammer has been around since 1995 and all of their beers are made using spring water from Guelph’s artesian wells.

The first Stonehammer brew I tried this month was the Queen’s English Mild Ale.  It poured a dark almost black mahogany with almost no head.  Judging by their website this was a one-off specialty brew that was available for a a limited time. Though the description mentioned hops I didn’t really get a hops smells or taste with this one — the malt flavour and caramel notes took precedence.

Despite this being a dark beer than my standard fair I really enjoyed it.  It was flavourful enough without being overbearing – and is the type of beer that both Andrew and I could agree upon.  I’m looking forward to trying the Red Male Ale that also came from Stonehammer Brewing.
