HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Sampled at GABF 2011. Dark hazy brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, toffee. Lots of mild bitterness in the aroma. Flavor is nearly unbeatable for a mile. Lots of caramel, toffee, some nuts. It nearly tastes like a turtle (the candy, not the animal. I had turtles as a kid and am still not comfortable eating them). Very dry and smooth. This is a beer I’d love to just drink for a while. Medium bodied, typical carbonation, so it’s very easy to drink. I liked this one.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2011
On tap at Hawthornes. Just clear rusty brown with beige froth. Nose is coffee, maple and hay. Medium body with barely discernable carb. Taste is watery coffee and grain with a touch of molasses.

Growler from the brewery. Pours dark brown color with tan head. Toasted malt aroma with some nuttiness. Slightly roasted malt flavor with some caramel sweetness and earthy hops. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation.

jcartamdg (3136) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours brown with a paperthin head. Aroma of caramel malt and English hops. Taste follows, like the name very mild. Nice session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tgncc (3100) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2011
The appearasnce is a hazy dark red/brown, small head. The aroma is toasted malts, tea leaves. The flavor is malty, toasted, tea. The finish has a weak, vanishing hop bitterness. The body is on the thin side of medium. Not bad. Nice to try a vanishing style like this.

dchmela (3013) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Tap at CCB. Pours a deep brown, hazy. Grainy, noble hops aroma. Taste is light, smooth malt with a nice touch of grain and euro hops providing a touch of bite. Nice session beer.

mzaar (2828) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2012
15 cl test på Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, Florida. Nötighet och fruktighet, så kan jag väl bäst beskriva detta öl, som i all sin tämliga anonymitet ändå är helt okey.

PhillyBeer2112 (2761) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Draft at Mellow Mushroom, Winter Park. Hey nice. Dark brown color, modest head. Aroma is a little toffee caramel, touch nutty. Flavor similar, creamy mouthfeel, moderate hop bitterness at the finish. Well balanced quaffer, great with food. Only dislike is the choice hops, tasted a little woody and mushroomy. But the creamy rounded feel of the malts kept me distracted and satisfied.

dnstone (2707) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Light malty aroma. Hazed copper-brown and off-white head. Fairly light and malty with a bitter balance.

glennmastrange (2681) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Tap. Light to moderate malt notes of toasted, cocoa and nuts, light herbs and dough for the hops and yeast, with hints of toffee and dried fruit. Head is small, fizzy off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear brown. Flavor starts lightly acidic and finishes the same with just a touch of bitterness. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. A very easy drinking beer with some good qualities, but with a Mild Ale there’s just not a whole lot of anything.
