COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three Floyds interpretation of an American mild. A smooth medium bodied session beer with a bright citrus hop aroma and finish.

On Tap. Typical of what 3 Floyds makes, except a little lighter. Not the best Iíve had from them, but if this is the only local microbrew on tap, Iíd take it.

This must be Three Floyds attempt to reach out to remedial beer drinkers. Not enough malt to be a true mild, not enough hops to be interesting, just BORING. I should probably rate it a bit higher, but I expect more from Nick Floyd.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2004
Big, creamy head; copper color. Aroma: fresh, slightly spicy, soft, faintly herbal, some lemon zest. Taste:tangy, but smooth, quite mild, but more character and flavor than other session ale types Iíve tried recently. I could drink a lot of this, if I didnít care too much about variety, etc. Unfortunately, I like to drink quality, exciting brews, and a diversity of them. So I ask: why canít the discriminating session beer drinker, the party giver, the softball player, turn to this instead of Bud Light?

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2004
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 Re-rate. Bottle. Light orange with a frothy white head. Hoppy smell reminds me of pineapples. Flavor is malty sweet with a solid hop backbone and nice balancing bitterness. The light palate makes this is a great session beer. On tap at brewery. Light orange in color. This beer has a watery palate to it that seems non-Three Floydsish. Flavor seems lacking of malt, and piney hop flavor is not what I expected. 2.6.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2004
Mild citrus malt aroma, very soft thin malt taste , a little more bitterness thana macro light. This may be typical of the style, But I can't see ordering this again

This is a perfect beer for "multiple" tastings. A slight hop flavor of Three Floyds that is expected. Definitely Three Floyds version of a typical British Mild. A good hop flavor with a nice balanced malt finish. Definitely drinkable, ridiculously flavorful for such a mild beer, Find it, love it, share it. Nick Floyd for President.

Why are people still rating bottles of this,they are old as can be!!!! Fairly dark,golden. Nice,thick,creamy,head. Very hoppy,nutty-sweet malts,in the aroma. Substantial body,for a lighter beer. Nice fruity,nutty malt flavors with a nice,hop,finish. I was happy to taste this at the brewery,the bottles I was getting a year ago,tasted horrible,I can't imagine what they taste like now. Great,easy drinking beer that I could drink all day long.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2005 You call this a mild ale? You call this a bitter? You call this anything? Itís really some freaking hopbomb hybrid style thatís pretty much undefineable. Itís orange colored with a huge fluffy white head. Iíve had this in bottles and on draft at the brewery, and the bottles actually resemble Alpha King... weird. Sweet wine and hop aroma, sweet white grapes are everywhere in this one. Some melon as well, very interesting, very leafy, starchy and hop-focused. Very fresh tasting, with a gritty, fresh vegetable hop flavor: a little caustic, some decent pine wood and sap characteristics. VERY hoppy and grassy... seriously I could be convinced Iím drinking Alpha King. Overall I have little complaints, I love hop orgys.

Very smooth & drinkable, amber in color, decent white lacy head, hoppy nose, slight hint of malt in the flavor, more-or-less very flavorless & band, lacking body, not very impressive
