3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A pleasant, toasted, biscuity and slightly tart light blond ale with a surprisingly big body. Very good.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed a few weeks after purchase.
The look: Cloudy dark blond body topped by a medium white head.
In long: Nose is nice biscuity toastiness, dried fruits, citric hops. Medium body with a pillowy texture supported by fluffy yeast and big soft bubbles. Taste has hay and straw, banana peels, dry lemongrass, toasted pale cookies, dried fruits, crackers, some yeast. Finish is rather sharp with a medium tartness/acidity leading to a very dry after-taste with Refreshing beer that is also quite tasty for a Mild. Another impressing Mild in a bottle (a rarity in North-America) by Pretty Things. but even if pretty good I much preferred Pretty Things own February 22nd 1945 Mild Ale I had minutes before. Anyway, yet another American mild ale in bottle, but I’m still hopeful that one day an Americans will make a boozy imperial stout or a movie about a cop who is handling one last case before he retires.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden body with a frothy white head. Aroma of toasted grain, citrus, pepper, herbal hops, coriander, orange. Hint of grass. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Spicy hop flavor atop toasted grain (a bit husky) and a lingering bitterness. Extra credit for developing flavors in a low abv beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle purchased at Keg Liquors in Clarksville, Indiana. The pour is a clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is hay, a mild spice and herbal yeast. The taste is bright floral spice hop right off balanced along nicely with fresh cereal grain. The palate is light bodied, with a crisp dry mineral finish. Easy drinking beer, nice clean character for a mild.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared at the Beers Of Fall tasting at my house, more as a bit of "palate relief" from some of the sweeter brews we’ve been having. This was the perfect choice. Hazy medium gold, grassy aroma with hints of lime. Straw-like malts, light and crackery, with grassy hops in the finish. Just as the label description says really, light but full flavoured. Very well executed.

Bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a lighter copper with some haze. White head of foam. Not much retention. Aroma is pretty hoppy. It has some nice grapefruit and mango notes. Quite surprised at this. Taste is a sweet fruity profile with a moderate bitterness coming through in the finish.
