COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

4 oz at High Plains Tap House. Light orange...a bit cloudy. Great malt aroma! Great mouthfeel. Slight roasty/bready/nutty with a hit of darker fruit but not plum or raisin. Very enjoyable - exactly what I look for and desire in a mild.

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.

A - Pours a cloudy amber-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some light lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet biscuity malts with some fruity English yeast esters, with some nuttiness. T - Starts off with some sweet biscuit or cracker malts with some fruity English yeast esters. Through the middle, some nuttiness and bready malts come through with a bit of bitterness and some more fruitiness. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts with fruity English yeast flavors and nuttiness. M - Medium-minus bodied with mild carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and fruity finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice example of an English mild. Good overall balance and malt profile.

ekoerper (590) - Iowa, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Aroma: malty and toasty, touch of caramel, faint hint of chocolate, no hop presence. Pours a somewhat hazy light amber color, thin white head with a couple minutes of retention, leaves decent lacing. Flavor is nice and toasty, biscuit with a hint of chocolate or roast and some caramel. Bitterness is subdued, minimal hop flavors. Medium body, low carbonation, light and smooth on the palate. A very nice, easy drinking beer, and seems to be pretty accurate to style. I think this is spot-on for what the brewers were shooting for.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, opened 3/28/11. Pours a clear copper color with a medium tan creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and very faint stone fruits. The taste is bready notes, toasted malts, plums and other fruits, caramel. Medium bodied. The ABV isnít what Iíd call a mild ale, but its still a pretty nice beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2011
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.

Caramel, bready malt aroma, with fruity English yeast and herbal hops. Nice balance of caramel, bread/toast, and sweet malt flavors. Can taste the cherry/apple-like fruity yeast, too. Itís unfiltered--so maybe that contributes to the flavor (which is tasty)? (Release #25)

22oz bomber. Clean and easy. Orange-tan. Oily head. Smooth, clean malt tones, some mellow herbal hop tones. Quite well balanced. Nothing like an English Mild, but a very nice session beer.

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.
