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.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2009 Burnt copper body with a thin white head, lots of sweet caramel and molasses in the mix, and the rye adds a nice unusual note on the finish.i

Exactly as billed- a mild winter warmer. Your standard winter warmer type malt profile is there, and fortunately in this case mild is not a synonym for "too watery", but it goes go down fairly easy and isn’t heavy or filling. You won’t get a blast of heavy malts that drink like a meal or a high alcohol content to warm you up the old fashioned way, but you bought something with the word "mild" in it, so presumably you weren’t looking for something with an overwhelming taste or alcohol profile. Still, as I said, by no means watery. Take a Wild Goose Snow Goose (defunct regional winter warmer) and cross it with a Sam Adams Boston (Stock) Ale, and you’d get something like this. Not bad.

Picked up a 6 pack at the local liquor store after the Redskins lost to the Lions, bullshit. Pours a dark chocolate color with a thin tan head. Chocolate and dark caramel for taste.

Pours a medium brown with a lingering tan head. Grassy and a bit yeasty aroma. A bit of a yeasty and grass flavor as well with a slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied and thin palate.

Dark pour with a decent mouthfeel. Very mild aroma of chocolate malt, and heavy cereal. Taste adds heavier chocolate character and even more grain. Pleasant, but not inviting. Not terrible.

Deep caramel color, off-white head. Aromas of roasted barley, malt, and prominent weedy hops. Warms without being too heavy. Pretty good, simple, well-balanced.

12oz. Pours a deep deep copper with a thin white head. Really bready nose melded with chocolate malt. Taste if caramel and chocolate malt. Rye comes through in the dark bready flavor.For the price point of this sixer I’d say its a pretty drinkable brew.

Mostly clear brown/dark copper/dark amber in color. White head with not much size, retention or lacing. Some burnt orange and yellow highlights around the bottom and sides. The aroma reminded me of some burnt toast and earthy malts. A touch of caramel in the nose also. The taste provides the burnt toast with some roasted chestnut type flavors. Some earthy malt. Not a whole lot of bitterness present. Not picking up the caramel as much in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel. Motly crisp, but not leaving much on the palate. Rather smooth also. Dry. This beer is alright. Easily drinkable. I like the burnt toast flavor ok. I could have a few of these no problem. This could be good in the Fall as well as the Winter.

Mild malt smell, dark body translucent to the light, lacking something in taste. Bland smooth flavor but lacking body. Overall a good winter offering that isn’t too spiced.
