Peter’s Mild is brewed to commemorate the life of Peter Austin, founder of the Ringwood Brewery and innovator in the development of modern craft/micro-brewed beer in England. Ruby-tan in color with a fluffy off-white head, this classic English mild ale bears an American influence, with its generous, yet judicious, hop profile. The flavor and aroma hold layers of malt depth, from toasted bread and hazelnut spread to chocolate-covered salted caramel, glossed-over by gently herbal, fruity hops. Our carefully-selected hops and malt conspire to compliment and contrast simultaneously, each slightly out-balancing the other, leaving a sense of intrigue after each sip. Arcadia’s house Ringwood-style yeast brings with it a pleasantly aromatic English influence, with notes of overripe strawberries, dark pie cherries, and exotic stone fruit. All in all, this is an eminently drinkable, “moorish” pint of ale that compels the drinker to dive deeper into its coppery depths, and particularly enjoyable on cask or served “real”.
