A perfect beverage to relax with after a long day on the slopes, this extremely pleasant to drink ale has very minimal hop addition. The delicate Mt. Hood hops give it a smooth body with a bit of nuttiness and a slightly sweet malt at the end. This sessionable ale has some wonderful vanilla and honey notes that are well balanced throughout the drink.

jgb9348 (5235) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Crisp deep copper coloured body with a peach glow and a thick, dense, three centimetre tall tan head - this is much more like an IPA or an APA in terms of appearance than any mild Iíve ever had. Aroma of malt, yeast, bread, bananas, a touch of hops and more malt. Medium-bodied; Sharp malty flavour with some yeast notes, a little light spices and a good herbal and almost mineral taste. Aftertaste shows a bit of a simplistic vibe - the herbal and light malt notes are evident, and very little else. Overall, a decent beer - different than most milds Iíve had, and refreshingly easy to drink, given itís large format. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 09-October-2011 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington on 06-November-2011. Release #6, at 5.0% abv

Pours hazy amber with two fingers of white head. Nose is very bready with lots of toasted and biscuity notes, a light malt sweetness, and some grassy hops. Very similar flavor, bread and biscuits big time. Medium body, nice.

Bottle. Not sure Iíd consider 5% a mild but here goes. Poured into a Surly pint glass a clear golden color with a white thick head. Clean, light biscuit flavor in the nose with a touch of sweetness. Semi clean taste with some fruit flavors and a touch of what I can only describe as a plastic taste. Ends crisply. Decently easy drinking. Medium mouthfeel. Ex the plastic note, this wasnít too bad.

Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and very faint stone fruits. The taste is bready notes, toasted malts, plums and other fruits, caramel. Medium bodied.

portableparty (2248) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Release # 3. Pours clear amber with a quick fluffy white head. Aroma is grassy hay malt with what I will call subtle apple scents. Taste is nice caramel malt and a crazy chocolate vanilla taste in the background along with some pepper. Palate is slick and chaulky with a nice dry finish. Solid tasty brew with no hoppiness.
