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

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.

piscator34 (2081) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
Draft. Brown in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of nougat, toasted nuts, and cocoa powder. Flavors are of pale malt, malted chocolate candies, and a bit of orchard fruit notes from the yeast. Slick bodied. Serviceable, but could have used more hop flavor.

On tap at Surly. Not bad for a low ABV brown ale but least favorite I tried at the brew house

markducommun (323) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Deep red mahogany, light tan head. Corn, light grains on the nose. A bit like Crispex. Sweetish, a touch of bitterness. Quite light, but fairly chewy. Medium finish. Pretty good.

maekchu (2602) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 21, 2015
Tap at Surly. Light chocolate nose. Dark translucent brown color, thin tan head, great lacing. Light chocolate initial, very pleasant, toasty sweetness. Basically just thin choco throughout the palate, without much development. Okay. Smooth and moderate all the way. "Mild" is an understatement

dwm1034 (692) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2015
DRAFT at Farmhouse in Chicago. Pours dark brown with moderate head. Nose is caramel and a bit of hops. Very mild taste...more chocolate and caramel...goes down way too easy. Tasty but mild.

Definitely an English style ale. Not what i expected from Surly. Mild as described. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2014
Poured on tap at Emporium. Interesting choice of style - replicating a true British session ale style. Pure malt based brown/caramel hued ale. Some english toffee notes, with minimally noticed aroma. Medium-light mouthfeel, absolutely a beer to take down midweek.

kaser (3781) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
Light brown pour from draft at Clark's. Tons of off white foamy head. Nutty choclate taste. Roasty almonds. Light but good flavor for the low ABV

dinkle50 (1075) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
Malty aroma full of caramel. Red pour with a thin head. Full, smooth mouth feel. Taste is light with roast and caramel. Bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Very little aroma, maybe a little malt. Leaves your mouth with a slight lemon tartness in the aftertaste. Notes of bitter chocolate and coffee.
