3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Dragonmead. Pours a nice dark brown with large foamy head. Aroma is not strong, but is evident with chocolate and fresh nuts. Taste is exactly what it aimed for, mild.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
An aroma of tobacco and pear. Clear dark brown with a nice white head and minor lace. Tastes mildly sweet like the smell of a good cigar, mild roast malt, and a nearly undetectable grapefruit bitterness on the end to balance the vanilla-ish tobacco sweetness from the start. Palate is nice and creamy; this is only served on nitro. Overall, this is one of my favorite beers from Dragonmead, and the world for that matter; I think it is very under rated and unique beer if you enjoy a mild ale.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark and low alcohol. Palate is incredibly thin. A bit too much sweet maltiness for my tastes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent dark copper with thin off-white head. Smells malty and chocolatey with a touch of hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Not my favorite style, but a solid example of it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up via nitro tap at the Dragonmead brewpub with clear amber body and firm tan head. The aroma has notes of sweet malts, spiciness and earthiness that don’t really come together too well. The taste is smooth and mild with a mix of sweet malts and roasted malts and finishing with a sense of citrus hops and faint earthiness. For being so mild in flavor this Mild is pretty tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Dragonmead. Nitro head on a dark amber pour. The nose is light and a little bit earthy. Soft and slightly fruity. The palate is quite dead (I blame the nitro) but the beer seems to be reasonably well-made. Bland and a little bit earthy. It’s okay, but it could be a lot better.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro… RBSG 2010… Mostly clear, dark ruby ale with an orange tint and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The subdued aroma presents chocolate as its standout feature. Medium-bodied and uber creamy with pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is of sweet tea biscuit and caramel with hints of chocolate and coffee. Very low bitterness. Lengthy fading sweetness with a touch of bitterness on the back and sides of the tongue.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On nitro tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt, roasted malt, and a touch of sourness (?). Flavor of sweet malt, roasted chocolate malt, with a light palate. Decent mild I guess although I didn’t much care for it.
