COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship Mild Ale is a medium-bodied beer with a light amber hue and slightly sweet undertones of malted barley. The secret to Mild Aleís drinkability is in its balance. In other words, it has just the right amount of malt, hops, body and alcohol content. It deserves to be imbibed often. Whether youíre enjoying a fine meal, or just kicking back with a few friends, Mild Ale is the perfect choice.

The only reason I rated this beer so high is the fact that it has been discontinued and I actually liked it. Anyone who recently rated it probably had a super old batch

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 (bottle) pours orange brown with a lingering head. the sweet malt flavor, watery palate and moderate carbonation reminded us of dr. pepper. i wasnít too keen on the initial aroma (boozey) but after a few sips it blends with the palate. it has an interesting flavor and a smooth taste. would make a decent session beer but may be too sweet for some. in general, i think southern tier has better.

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Poured dark orange with virtually no head. I thought maybe it wa sflat when I opened it hoever, it was carbonated. Mostly malt aroma with hints of caramel. Flavor is all malt. Nice body. A pretty good beer and a nice example of a mild.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Hazy light amber with a small white head. Aroma of freshly cracked malt with some caramel. Flavor is malty, with just a slight spicy bitterness in the finish. A great session brew, in a vastly under-appreciated style. Unfortunately, this is being discontinued for the time being due to lack of interest. Seems manly men donít like drinking a beer with "mild" in the name. I guess Iím not a manly man.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 15, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2005 (12 oz bottle, obtained in trade with shadey, thanks Shane!) Another American mild ale that isnít close to style. Unfortunately, not only is this one not to style (a fact which never impacts my ratings), itís also pretty bland and boring (which DOES!). The light, delicate nose has a mild, sweet melon aroma. And the flavor is also lightly melony, with some gently bitter hops in the mix. But because the malt is so light, the mild hoppiness is modestly dominant. Light in body, but doesnít seem watery. Light amber in color. Smallish off-white head maintains a thin layer and leaves some patches of lace on the glass. I donít care that this isnít to style, but I do care that itís a boring beer. Blah.

MrBeer (276) - Erie, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2005
A nice mild beer. Could have used a little more flavor to it, but the flavor that is there is still good. Overall this is another good beer from Southern Tier.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Golden pour with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma of corn flakes, hops, florals. Tastes like liquid corn flakes with a hoppy, fruity finish. Smooth as silk, well balanced, and up there with FFF Pride and Joy as the best mild ales Iíve ever had. Just astounding.

Suttree (5130) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Hazy Orange, no head. Aroma of Orange marmalade and honey. Slight honey flavor a, some mild pine hop notes, as well some citrus flavors. A hint of sweet, then a dry finish. Very tasty. Thanks to Springslicker for this one!

I really enjoyed this beer. Iíve only tried about six milds. This would fall in the middle of the pack... my favorite of the style being Moorhouse Black Cat . This is a very light, refreshing amber ale. Small, fizzy, off-white head. Crisp, clean aroma and perfectly balanced flavor. Notes of iced-tea and straw in both. Light-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Perfect with food, much like a Vienna... only better as itís an ale. Thanks to springslicker for the bottle.
