COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Surly Mild is a session ale brewed with pale ale, caramel and chocolate malts. Light brown in color with malt forward flavors of sweet toasted bread and cocoa are balanced by a crisp hop finish. A post holiday session ale? What’s a session ale you ask? It is a low alcohol beer packed with color and flavor, designed for a “session” of multiple servings

portableparty (1927) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2013
On tap at brewery. Pours dark amber brown with a tight off white head that slowly fades to a collar. Aroma is roasted malt veggies and little mild spice and burnt coco. Taste is much the same as above. Palate is medium and finishes chalky. This is not the way I remembered it from last year! Last years was dark brown almost black and hazy with smells of peat chocolate and roasted malt. Something was different!

sherm1016 (1160) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Draft at the Blue Nile. Pours a clear, light brown color with a tan head and a little lacing. Aroma is bready, toasty, nutty. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, very nutty, some light bitterness, with a nice, fruity malty finish. Great at 4%.

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Was hoping this would be one of my go to beers. Didn’t happen. Nice color and lacing. Taste is nice and smooth but it just doesn’t stand out at all. Least favorite surly.

On tap at Muddywaters in Minneapolis. Not a fan - tastes too watery with no impact on the ole tastebuds.

Huhzubendah (2618) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2012
On draft during the Surly event at Churchkey in D.C. Review from notes. The beer is a dark, mahogany brown color with hints of auburn when held to the light. The nose brings caramel malt and roast. Bready and light. This is terrific beer. A fine example of the style, and what a session beer can be. Light bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. Silky smooth on the palate. I would definitely have this again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-06-2012
