Growler thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a tan head and a deep brown body. Aroma of grain, slight coffee, smoke and nutshells. Taste is husky and decently bitter. Medium bubbles and dry. Not a bad mild.

2009 Growler - Thanks Douglas88! - Pours thin brown with a small tan head...aroma is dry dark malt, grain, toasted bread...flavour is similar, dry and dirty (in a good way), with the roast and grain providing a nice backbone to a brew designed to be lighter...finish is nicely bitter, the flavour to alcohol quotient is off the charts, who knew a mild could offer so much...I always appreciate a beer that you can drink before 7 in the morning and feel good about! Thanks again...

Big thanks to douglas88 for the growler of this top notch Mild Ale. It pours dark brown with amber hues and tan head. The aroma has a touch of earthiness to go along with some malt roast and the faintest sense of hoppiness. I get both malts and roast in the initial pulse of flavor. Those notes are followed by a fairly deep dark earthiness to midway. Into the finish the earthiness begins to recede leaving a pleasing malts roastiness, a touch of dryness and a sense of vague hop bitterness. The after taste has roast and just a bit of chocolate malts. Very nice.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for sharing the growler of this. Pours cola brown with an off-white head. Nose is malt, some nuts, and a bit of bitterness. Flavor is, well, mild, with malt, hops, and some roastiness with distinguishable chocolate. Finishes clean with some dissipating roast flavors. Enjoyable mild.

On tap @ Hoppers. Deep brown colored pour with a nice tightly packed off-white head. Light roasted coffee, chocolate, nuts and honey in the aroma. Great roasted malt and coffee in the flavor as well. Sweet malty finish. Smooth and creamy in the mouth. This is my first Mild Ale so I have nothing to compare it to, but it is delicious!

NABA 08’: Pours a coppery brown color with light head. The nose is intensely malty with lots of caramel and melanoidins. Toast, biscuit, coffee. Amazingly malty mouthfeel and a creamy toasty finish. So good, I wish I could take more of this away. Wow!
