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.

Bottle to sampler cup. Poured a dark orange / brown . Had a smokey flavor, with some hop notes & decent subdued malt flavor. Pretty good, but maybe on the watery side.

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.

raradel (325) - 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.

drywallman (325) - 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.

AndrewC (317) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2010
Bottle. Doesn’t really smell of anything. Chestnut brown. Rich, tangy with a dry body. Bit of cardboard to it but that’s covered up by the slightly tangy flavour. I liked it.

Poured a cola color with a thick beige head. Aroma is caramel, grass, earthy, cereal, and white pepper. Taste is salty, caramel, pepper, leaves, grass, and hay.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2008
This was pretty solid, but also kind of average. Very creamy and smooth for a rye beer, I expected more robust spiciness. Goes down easy though to the point where I wouldnt mind having a few of these.

pours an amber color with nice white head. A good solid beer that taste a little fruity, but not overpoweringly so. 12 oz. bottle
