Winnikeg, Manitobeer--Fort Garry Dark English Mild Ale

Stay tuned over the next few days for a series of reviews of beers that hail from scenic Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Winnipeg's Fort Garry Brewing Company gave life to Fort Garry Dark English Mild Ale. This brew, sold in 473mL cans, contains 5% alcohol and pours an attractive dark amber colour topped with a quickly thinning off-white head. According to the can, it has a gentle 16 IBUs.

D.E.M.A. had a malty scent with some notes of vanilla and brown sugar. It featured a lovely smooth mouthfeel from start to finish, as well as a flavour that tended toward the malty, but with sugary mocha and vanilla elements.

I found this to be an enjoyable beer, though likely one that is too sweet and slight to bring me back to the well frequently. Certainly a good enough effort to leave me wanting to try more Fort Garry beer.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
