COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toffee brown, medium-bodied, with a creamy head and an aroma of raisins and freshly baked dark bread. Mild Winter’s rich caramel malt and spicy rye flavors are sure to take the bite out of whatever Old Man Winter brews up for you this year.

12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish, toffee brown with off white head. Aroma is lightly roasted malts, light toffee. Taste is dark bread, roast malt, hint of vanilla possibly. A smooth drinker....a really nice winter offering from Goose Island, will buy again.

I got this courtesy of my pops. It pours a reddish amber with a small white head. I think this is a solid, no frills, refreshing ale. It’s not mindblowing, but I don’t think it was meant to be. Would be great with good pizza, or a burger. Good stuff. Cheers!

Grainy, toasted malts, and sweet toffee aroma. Caramel malty sweet, spice and grains, buttered biscuits, all for flavors. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Not real complex but ok.

spilledpint (346) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2011
12 oz. bottle from HyVee Marion Ar: Roasty aroma with notes of nuts and chocolate. Ap: Pours a medium brown with red streaks. Cream colored frothy head lasts a long time. Spotty lace. T: A bit of sweetness up front, but this isn’t overly sweet. Nice roasty body with a good nuttyness and some spicyness (probably from the rye). The finish is spicy, with a touch of black pepper along with a moderate coffee flavor. Nicely balanced with a refreshing hop bitterness. P: Medium body with medium carbonation. Nice session body. O: Very impressed. A nice roasty beer that’s perfectly sessionable.

Mild aroma, deep beautiful copper/brown color (filtered?), excellent taste, thin palate. Solid beer.

raradel (342) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Had a glass at Island Girl in Atlantic Beach... Good flavor, light bodied for what it looks like. Mild winter is a great name, not a heavy winter beer but great balance.

astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Red-amber. Small, white head. Aroma: Grains, rye, malt. Flavor: Multi-grain bread, rye, hops. Grainy finish. When I think of beers with a grainy taste, I think of some of the worst beers on the shelf. This one is decent though nothing great, just drinkable.

drywallman (333) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2010
This one poured medium brown with a moderately long lasting head. The malt reminded me of caramel with brown sugar, but not sticky sweet, and having a slightly dry rye edge. The hops balanced well and were a spruce and herbal combo. It drank easily and cleanly. Very well made and one you could drink more than one of at a time.

Clear brown body with a full white head. Mild malty, bready, rye aroma. Starts with a soft malt bread flavor that is accompanied by rye.Finishes mildly bitter.
