3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
A good mild.
amber color with a big white foam head,
aroma of malt caramel and butter.
very little in the way of bittering hops so it hs a rather sweet, toffee-caramel taste.
grear mouthfeel , smooth and creamy without any added nitrogen gimmicks.
A good session mild ale

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear light copper color. Thin head, but it fits the style. This is just sort of a nice, balanced, lighter ale. Some maltiness, some hoppiness, but not a lot of both. Good balance, for sure. Pretty good, Iíd recommend it to someone looking for a session beer.

Blah. I wouldnít mind it so much if it didnít have a nasty aftertaste that gets worse with each bottle.

Three Floyds has an excellent pale ale lineup and this one doesnít disappoint either. Mild ale with good hop finish. Whatever taste you desire, they seem to have one to fit the bill.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great mild. A sweet and malty start with a nice hoppy finish. Pleasing hop aroma when fresh, but donít put this one in your cellar. The beer lacks the malt complexity of some of the English milds and bitters, but the overall balance of the brew shows that the Floyds can brew with subtlety as well as with extremes

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orangish color with medium head that didnít last very long. Didnít detect much of anything in the aroma. Flavor is somewhat sweet with medium carbonation. A nice session ale.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours with a huge head that quickly disappears, slight malty/caramel taste. Not much carbonation. It has a slight sweetness that is present into the aftertaste. An easy beer to drink and even easier to forget.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours a clear medium orangish amber with a large slightly creamy frothy head
that diminishes quickly with not much lacing. The moderate hoppy nose is primarily
perfumed citrus with some light bread tones from the malt. The flavor finishes like it
starts becoming more balanced as the brew warms. Equally present are moderate amounts
of sweetness, bitterness, and acidity. The thin creamy texture is supported by lively
carbonation and a metallic finish to the feel. Not as exciting as Alpha King, but not bad
