651mL courtesy of beerandblues2. The pour is a hazed orange with a thick-ish, off-white head. Aroma is tangerine, orange, light peach, but none of these are really robust. Taste is neutral, thinner, malty, tangy lemon. Carbonation is soft. Not really much to this one so I’m really grasping for descriptors: grass, light honey and dough. Palate is clean.

Bottle shared by BeerandBlues2: Pours a clear deep amber bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with a touch of English hops. Starts with average fullness and light sweetness with good smooth bitter balance before a drier bittersweet finish. A true to style and drinkable mild ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper color, nose of bready malts. Tastes are a little heavy on the hops, but had nice toasted malts and a slight bitterness. Really wouldn’t consider this one a mild, but it would make an interesting brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of douglas88. Thanks! The bomber pours clear deep gold with off white head. The aroma offers up spicy hops, wheat bread, some caramel and earthiness. The taste is a mix of earthy hops, citrus like hops, malts and caramel malts that all seem to slide into the finish unchanged. Full flavored Mild with loads of body for the style.

Big thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours clear orange-amber with a white head. Nose has some biscuit, some malt, and earthy hops. Flavor is similar with a light to medium body and lingering malt and grassy hops. An excellent interpretation of what is quickly becoming one of my new favorite styles.
