COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Crescent Mild Ale is a Midwest interpretation of a classic English-style Mild. This beer has moderate malt aroma with biscuit, caramel and lightly roasted malt flavors. The bitterness of this beer is kept low and most people appreciate that there is a lower alcohol level without compromising on malt balance and flavor. The Great Crescent Brewery uses 5 different malts to create this beer. Our mild ale is mahogany color, clear and unfiltered to so we can maintain the fresh natural flavors craft beer drinkers are seeking. IBU: 25.7

16 ounce can. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear amber/brown color with a half inch off-white head that went away quickly. There’s a decent amount of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is toasted malt, toffee, and some caramel malt and nuts. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some light hops. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit coating but it’s also a bit watery too. It goes down smooth and is easy enough to drink. Not a bad brew, it’s always nice to see more breweries can their beer. I’d buy this again, I’ll have to try and make it to their brewpub/brewery sometime.

Light hops in the aroma. Typical light ale appearance. Flavor was fairly watery. Creamy palate. Too watery for my taste, but very drinkable.

11/15/2008: Great Crescent Mild Ale has a really nice roasty flavor. It has a mild bitterness and good malt flavor without being too heavy. This beer is brown, clear, and has a medium-light to medium body. This is a good Mild.
