3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
5 oz. pour, on tap at Stone Tap in Hudson, WI. Consumed on 6-25-14. Pours a clear brass/bronze with a moderate amount of cream-colored head. Produces long-lasting, thick lacing. Refreshing, piney, citric smell features grapefruit, lemon, green apple, green grape, and cracker scents. Smells good. Flavors of cracker, lemon, grapefruit, and pine. Interestingly, the flavor matches the aroma but in reverse order of emphasis. Salty, briney flavor. Light body. Easy to drink. Lively and soft in the palate. Refreshing. Overall, a solid beer and above average for the style. Seems to me more like an American Pale Ale than an Amber Ale (as it is classified at RateBeer) or a Mild (as it is billed by the brewery).

Clear amber-copper color, moderate white head. Aroma is bread, hay, and a bit of must. Light sweetness and some pine bitterness in the finish. Light bodied, lively carb, and a short finish.

Sweet, malty, smooth. Amber pour. Nose was toffee and crisp hops. Taste added honey. Nothing spectacular but super sessionable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice Amarillo aroma (dry-hopped, probably), follows through in the taste. Some resin, as well. Not what I think of when I think "mild". Hoppy American mild, I guess. Light Copper color, big head, way overcarbed. Tastes great, but maybe American bitter would be closer to the style. Not malty--like sweet grapefruit & peach.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy carrot-orange color. Thick half-finger of head.
Aroma is sugary barley malts. Spicy and earthy like a prickly red ale. The hops are of the bittering/balance variety. Dry with a rye bread quality.
The taste is more bready malts, lots of spiciness. The hop is basically an accent, not much going on there, but that’s to be expected.
Feels medium-bodied, a little sandpapery. It’s a very earthy, malty ale. The amber malts are really flavorful. Decent. A mild ale indeed, a session ale with plenty of malt flavor.
