Milk chocolate colored beer. White foamy head. Nose is slightly acrid with a nice metallic tinge. This lifts and is followed by a cocoa sweetness that mingles well (and Loosely) with the carbonation. Very winey ale because of the thickness of the carbonation and the thinness of the palate. This forces the brew to have a metallic finish to the malt. Hops are existent but only subtly at the end with a c-hop bitterness. Interesting and very drinkable example of the style. Mostly true to what Iíve experienced from a mild.

Served a near black with a small amount of brown when held to the sun, extremely thin tan ring for a head. Aroma of coffee, toffee, a various malt blend (am I right Josh?), and great memories. Thatíll suffice. Hits the mouth with a firm medium body, malt was roasted throughtly middle holds up well, finish is delightful with some lingering bitterness, sweetness, and a tiny amount of acidity- much like my wife- da da dump DING. Ever since douglas88 turned me onto Utah beers (below 4%) , Iíve been a big fan of small beer with a whole lotta flavor. This is no different.

(Draught) Pours a dark brown body with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, earth, coffee, chocolate, and grass. Flavor of earth, celery, baking cocoa, light citrus, and roasted malt.

Mora2000 (6135) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2010
The beer pours a hazy brown color with a white head. The aroma is strong chocolate with some dark malts. The flavor is a mix of oats, coffee and chocolate. The oats are really obvious and very nice. The mouthfeel is a little watery and the carbonation is low. The beer doesnít have all of the flavor of a good porter, but as a less than 4 percent ABV beer, this one has a ton of flavor and is outstanding.

Nellie (349) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Tastes like really rotten bananas dipped in chocolate. Super strong alcohol flavor. Metal. Lots of metal. All that being said, I guess itís good for its style. What do I know. This is my 3rd rate.

(draught) murky brown pour very dew bubbles. Nose of honey, chocolate malt, rye, wheat bread. Taste of chocolate, dry cocoa, mild citrus hoppy notes, and sweet bread. Chalky finih but delicious linger.

Pours a rich deep brown with a light beige head. Smell is lightly roasty, nuts, and fruits. Pretty nice. Taste is light coffee, roasty malt some fruitiness and a gummy quality to it as well. Slightly full mouthfeel and lightly prickly carbonation. Very solid beer and an enjoyable one too.

kidmartinek (4385) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2008
A dark brown beer with a 1 inch tan frothy head that settles quickly to a thin film. Aroma of rich and slightly creamy dark malt. Flavor is pale bitter and dominated by dark roasted malt. Texture is slghtly creamy and finish is a little harsh. Mouthfeel is very fizzy and carbonated. Lacing is heavy and intricate. I give this beer a good rating because of the incredible amount of flavor for such a low %.

Very fruity aroma. Served from the tap was a nice dark brown with a small tan head. Rich malt and nutty flavors along with some of the fruitiness from the nose. A very nice brown ale

Milds could save my life. I could stop drinking things like barleywines. Sure. Like thatís really gunna happen. This was a mild, okay? and as such will have me hard pressed to rave, but it had some nice malt in there and was easy on the hops and came across as a VERY easily quaffable brew that could keep me happy for a bit until I started my usual bitching and wanted it to be prostituted for something with more and more and more until a mild it was no longer.
