Bottle. Amber with a thin off white head. Light spicy rye aroma with some light sweeter notes. The flavor is well balanced. Rye notes are up front, but donít dominate. A light caramel sweetness, with some nice spicy hop notes. A very solid sessionable winter seasonal.

harrisoni (13773) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer. Clear deep brown with lasting beige head. Itís a mild. Whoohooo, America made a proper mild!!!!!! Itís not stupid big hop, oh but it is bitter on the finish. So itís a bitter then, so a premium bitter. With some Rye. Mild on the aroma, quite drinkable in the mouth, some cereal and then some moderate hop on finish. Decent premium bitter.

tmoreau (2442) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Poured to a fluted fest glass at Brixieís Holiday Beer Tasting in Brookfield, IL. The color was a brownish amber with a modest, off white foam to the head, and light streaks as lacing. The aroma was a little grain, roasted malt, a touch of caramel, and very light hints of coffee and spice. The flavor was similar, with smooth malt and a subtle hop bitterness to balance. Not a warming winter ale but one to refresh before the snow begins to fly, and after it is gone.

guerinfbfan (110) - Elmwood Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Poured a nice deep red, with a large, foamy white head. Smells of malt, chocolate, and i got a very small hint of coffee. Tastes of mostly malt, not much else, and I didnít get any sense of rye in this beer. Nice beer.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Tap at blind tiger. Poured a medium amber. Nose was mild with some hints of malt. Fairly bland and easily sessionable. I really didnít distinguish the rye. Itís a pretty simple and fairly plain beer. Not bad but not so good.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint. Clear bronze with thin white head and nice lacing lines. Fairly unique color. Aroma of spicy rye, light chocolate and dark fruit, and a slight nuttiness. Light chocolate and toasted malts, with some dark fruit and a nice spicy twang from the rye. Relatively low carbonation, light body but also quite smooth and "English". Slightly dry finish but not a typical dry finish due to the rye. Ridiculously drinkable for a Winter seasonal. I donít have much experience with Milds, but I prefer this one over the few others I have tried.

mjs (4622) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2009
(Draught) Beer is cloudy and dark brown. Head is dense, medium sized and white. Rye and mals in general could be found when sniffing the beer. Palate was medium bodied and carbonation was medium, too. Taste contained malts, rye, sweetness, little bit of hops and ok bitterness. Aftertaste was mostly malty.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Dark brown colornice fluffy off white head. Aroma has some spice, nuts and chocolate. Flavor is clean and sweet. Some mild spice and cocoa. Faint bitterness balances it out.

daknole (9127) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Brown pour, off white head. Aroma is very malty with some cookie dough, caramel and some very distant aroma hops. Flavor is sweet and malty...some ritz crackers, caramel, spice and yeast. This was a nice little surprise.
