Gone Fishin Mild Ale is a low hop beer. Brewed with 5 different malts, this beer is high in malt character and low in hop bitterness and flavor. The perfect session beer for reeling in a few at the secret fishing ho

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours brownish amber with a creamy beige head. Mild malt aroma - hint of chocolate. Med body. Foamy carb. Flavor is that brown malt with chocolate that seems to be the thing about milds. Gets a little nutty toward the end. Seems a bit more flavorful than some English versions, but I think our cousins would recognize it.

Nice beer that pours brown and Carmel color. Not a big head but poured in a cold glass. Lacing on the side. Smell was not strong. Taste bit bitter with a toasted flavor. Bite on the end of the palate. Overall it was alright but not something I would search far and wide for.

22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington. The pour is a hazed orange brown copper with a slightly off white one inch head. Falls with a bit of lacing. Aroma is soft nutty maltiness, along with a pleasant light caramel sweetness. Also a touch of cardboard behind that. The taste is the sweet caramel nut up front - followed close behind with plum sweetness. Nice clean flavors. The palate is light bodied, nice unfiltered mouth feel, a touch watery in the finish. Aftertaste is lightly sweet, but clean. Nice refreshing beer for the patio.

From a 22-oz bottle this poured an attractive light orange color with a white head and light lacing. . Nose is malty. Light body and low carbonation mouthfeel. Flavor is of caramel malts and some nuts. Light finish with not much bitterness. Mild, as the style demands.

Hazed dark murky amber, foamy beige head. Aroma is fruit, toffee and floral hop. Taste is mostly sweet, slightly nutty, some husky grain bitterness on the finish. The flavor just seems off overall.

Bomber at Belmont Station. First beer I’ve had in this style. Poured mahogany with a big off-white head that had little retention. Caught whiffs of caramel, nuts and toffee, but not much of any of them. Tasted very sweet, with hints of nuttiness and some toffee. Very thin and watery, I’m pretty sure I won’t be drinking much more of this truly mild style.

Bottle; poured an orange color, quite vibrant. Nice aroma when I spilled it all over myself. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, nuts, earth and bread. Flavor had some nice components, but it came just short of being really good. Caramel and nuts; some bread and yeast, with a touch of fruit. Not much hop presense as expected. Solid.

Bomber. The pour is a slightly hazy, dark, rusty amber color. A small, spongey blanket of beige foam settles to a thin film with a skinny ring at the edge. Scattered micro-spots and skinny, vertical flares of lacing mark the glass. The aroma shows notes of sweet bread dough, crusty toast, spiced biscuit, and unsweetened iced tea. Flavors are decidedly more spicy, showing peppery notes that are intensified by fine but lively carbonation. Beneath the bittering, hoppy spice, more mildly sweet dough and caramelized biscuit show. The body is light, with the aforementioned lively carbonation and a quick, clean, crisp finish. This certainly mild in most respects, but there is nothing objectionable about it, and I would be perfectly happy sessioning this on a warm day, in fact.
