Share This Review

Blue Label Ale is an English-style Dark Mild brewed by Simonds Farsons Cisk Plc., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tumbler from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a crystal-clear copper and is topped by a finger-thick cap of frothy foam that bubbles away rapidly. Lace and residue are absent but a thin ring of foam gathers at the collar. Upon pouring, lively effervescence is visible in the glass but vanishes entirely shortly thereafter.

Aroma

The aroma is sweet with notes of biscuit, caramel and a hint of mint. Takes on a leathery scent as the beer warms.

Flavor

A malty palate begins with a taste of biscuit and smoothly rises to a mild bite of floral hops and toasted bread. The finish sweetly drops notes of apricot and caramel.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth with a medium-light body and less-than-moderate carbonation. Finishes slightly dry.

Overall

The Blue Label Ale has a palate that’s just interesting enough to keep you drinking. It’s also light, refreshing, easily quaffed, and its low ABV makes it a nice candidate for a session beer. Should you find yourself in Malta, this is a brew worth trying.
