English Dark Mild Ale
Named after a Radiohead song, this is a 3.5% "Imperial Mild" brewed with Columbus and Centennial and 198 theoretical IBUs (and therefore not a "Mild", which refers to hops in traditional brewing).

I bought this beer from Luvians in St. Andrews, Scotland. They found a box of it in their store after this beer has been discontinued for a while. Luckily I was able to get a few bottles for £1.80 for each 330mL (12oz) bottle.
When you open this bottle you smell the citrusy hops from the centennial immediately. VERY nice aroma that you tend to get in an IPA, maybe a double IPA.
It pours a nice dark amber color, medium small bubbles.
It tastes very nice, I tended to taste more citrus directly from the bottle, but I know that may be psychological just for me. It is quite drinkable, very clean. It has a bittern middle like you get in UK bitters and has a light citrus/bitter finish.
First time I had this beer it had what I'd like to call a Small Imperial IPA taste (like the "small beer" category) because of its low ABV of 3.5%, but the second bottle tasted more like an English Bitter.
Either way, it's a good beer. It's awesome when it has more of an Imperial IPA feel, but the 2nd bottle I had was still good.
