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.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2008 On tap at the brewpub. This beer won gold in 2007 at GABF, so I had to have it. Pours a dark brown with a medium cream colored head. The aroma is sweet toast and some honey. The taste is a great example of a English-style mild; roasted coffee and a strong toasted malt, also, some bitterness in the finish. Really well made. Smooth and easy, but also damn tasty. A great job.

Growler courtesy of douglas88. Pours brown with a finger length white head. Smells of chocolate, some light spice. Tastes earthy and tea like with some chocolate and light tartness. Some sugary hints on the finish.

(Growler thanks to bu11zeye) Pours clear brown with some bubbles. Nose is meaty, smoke. Taste unsweet crackers, bland, and pretty nondeScript. I enjoyed it, but not sure how to describe this one.

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!
