COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hardly a mild beer! With big hop flavor and aroma this light-colored medium-bodied ale is light in alcohol and big in flavor. A session beer. (Editor's Note: I had to change the style because this is not even close to a mild)

AirForceHops (3223) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Draft @ Portsmouth Brewery. Labeled as Wippersnapper which is the same recipe as the American Mild. ABV of 4.3 %. Pint glass displayed a clear golden amber with small lasting head. The nose and flavor run together. Caramel/ toffee hints in the front part of the sip, transitions into a herbal, pine bitterness. The balance is real nice. Carbonation and mouthfeel is also balanced. If you wanted to grab a growler and split with a friend while discussing the meaning of life, this could be your brew. Simple and straight forward and totally easy to drink in large amounts.

Labeled American Mild. Cloudy orange with a fluffy head. Sweet aroma with some hops, semi dry and bitter. Flavor is bitter hops, slightly dry and some citrus. Pretty good overall, not sure about being a bitter or mild?

2nd annual shenandoah gathering- bomber as American mild shared by wilkie! Pours a lighter than expected hazy stale coppery body- hazed, and a nice cobwebby head. Aroma is strangely fruity ok grassy herbal and lightly fruity hops with a coppery metallic caramel and light brown malt backbone with some slight burnt toast. Flavor is toasty, light nuts, bread, crackers, light floral and some citrus hops lemon, with a crackery yet clean finish- light bitterness- strange unique beer- easy drinking- not sure how to classify this.

(2nd Shenandoah Throwdown, 22oz bottle labeled "American Mild," thanks wilkie) Medium beige head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, cantaloupe, orange, bread. Taste is medium sweet, floral/earthy, bread, grapefruit. Medium body, some resin. Not sure what an American Mild is, much less whether this qualifies as one, but I like it regardless.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2008
22oz bottle labeled "American Mild" courtesy of MrRetardMonkey poured into a pint glass. Pours almost completely clear and golden amber with some bubbles feeding up from the bottom. The head is very small and short lived leaving a tiny ring of bubbles and no lacing. Smells of toasted grains, citrus and a a slight sweetness from the pale malts. It smells a bit bready overall and a good bit like a cream soda, at least to me. The taste has the citrus kick up front with the the pale bready malts and hints of caramel mix together in the middle. The finish has a crisp vanilla-ish flavor. The mouthfeel is well-carbonated and creamy. The finish is slightly dry. Having had no experience with milds, I didnt no what to expect. I certainly wouldnt call it an IPA, more like a bitter to me. Either way, its really drinkable and I enjoyed it.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - DEC 4, 2008
On tapat the brewpub, listed as Whippersnapper - they told me is was the same beer as the American Mild. Lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Fruity nose, tangerine and berries. Mildly bitter flavors of tangerine and toasty malt, light berries linger late. Meh - good, but not great.

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2008
Bottle, from the brewery
Golden-amber colour. The aroma shows a light fruitness (berry, lemon). A fresh, juicy, berryish beer, with some light toasty, caramelly malts. Fairly dry finish. Really quaffable, though to call it a mild is a serious stretch.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Bottle. Warm, rich golden color with little head. Mild grain aroma with grass, bark, corn, brass, and soil. Nice soft mouthfeel. Nicely earthy with a hop kiss in the aftertaste. Earthy, hoppy mild--very nice session brew I could do more often.

Cloudy amber pour with a thin white head. Good aroma of fruity, resinous hops. Good flavor of fruity, resinous hops. The body is light and oily while the carbonation is soft. Nice.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a nice golden amber in color with a small white head that faded quickly. Aroma was mild of hops and some maltiness. Flavor matched the aroma pretty closely with the hops asserting themselves a bit more than the malts. Nice piney hop finish. "Milds" are not normally my favorite beer, but this was better than average,
