Mild toffee with a touch of floral hops in the background. Super drinkable, but could use a bit more hop or malt character.

Cask at Clybourn. Translucent chestnut, puffy large-bubbled, cream-colored head, low lacing. Nose has onset of diacetyl, buttered crust, dusty biscuit. Flavor drops that, thankfully, dominated by grain, sharp and toasty, that becomes doughy and flaky by the finish. Soft profile, soft body, plays a bit like a BdG without the nuttiness or variety.

draft... clear medium brown amber, nice head... the aroma is lots of biscuit, and caramel, nice aroma... the taste is lacking, immediately reminds me of a homebrew, generic caramel, syrupy, just donít get this beer, strong flavors for a session beer but not the right flavors

Flight serving on tap at the Clybourn Brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a dark copper pour, no haze, but dark and gorgeous late summer sunset hue. A frothy near tannish head dies to a film, laces ok. Aromas are a touch of toast and biscuits, gentle mellow bread, some touches of gentle floral and earthy hops, more toast. Nice but understated. Initial is lighter bodied but witha touch of girth, offering toast and biscuits, touches of bread, some grain, a light feel of darkness, gentle spice. Simple as the middle throws a light sessionable yet darker slant on a mild. Some good toast and earth, biscuits and a whole lot of toast. A touch of carmelization grows. Finish cleans up, gentle floral and earthy hop, no real spice. Very drinkable in my book. Liked this a lot for the style. Top notch.

Draft at GI Clybourn. Pours an attractive reddish brown, good clarity, nice head. Nose is really nice. Toasty with a faint herbal hop note. Round a full malt presence, no real caramel or roast, just pure malt goodness. On taste, really toasty and malt forward, again, no roast. Good medium-light body. The toasty notes are really great. There is also a hint of faint diacetyl in the background that really helps this beer shine. Really great mild.

Enjoyed while hanging out with a good friend at the Goose Island Clybourn brewpub. Appearance a cloudy amber with thin white head. Aroma very much nutty, with caramel malt backing. Taste also nutty with that toffee/malt backing, definitely an easy drinker, not much carbonation like an English ale. Pretty good stuff, but nothing exemplary. Would definitely enjoy again if they decide to bottle.

Had at the Clybourn brew pub. Glad to see more milds available but unfortunately not my favorite example of a mild. A tad watery, but then it is supposed to be a very session-able beer. However Iíve had other milds that didnít have that wateriness.. Medium brown, slightly sweet(could have been a little sweeter). Good but not outstanding. I think a re-try is needed. Serving: Tap
