Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2005
Golden/light orange body, medium off-white head. Big piney hops aroma with biscuity malt, toast, and a touch of grapefruit. Sharp, crisp, fresh hoppy flavor, dominated by pine and, to a lesser extent, grapefruit rind, complemented by biscuity, toasty malts. More of an APA/borderline IPA than a mild ale, but this is Three Floyds! Quite nice.

every beer these guys make is very hop infested (which isnt a bad thing :) ) brownish red colored pour. malty and hoppy nose as well as taste. low alcohol content is slightly deciving (seems like there was more). something i wish i could get all the time around here, but with their small distrobution that will be hard to do :)

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2005 This has the same hop profile as their APA, strong pine/citrus. A light gold color with a small white head. I found this very drinkable, then again I had it on cask, which may have some influence. This fits all the parameters of a good session beer. Upon further tasting this has the best hop/malt balance of the 3F beers while maintaining the distinctive 3F hop profile.

BCAR (221) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2005
The more I have this, the more I like it. Not really mild, only by comparison to the taste explosions usually provided by the Floyds. Stands on its own as a drinkable, well-balanced beer. Still a good hop presence with a slight bitter finish.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Bottle: Orange amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma is a bit too hoppy for the milds I’m used to, but this appears to be billed as an american mild, so I guess it’s an americanized mild. Citrus, pine, grapefruit in the aroma, as well as mild caramel notes. Tastes medium hoppy, with notes of grass, grapefruit, citrus, some caramel and chocolate hidding in there too. Good carbonation for the style, but the hops feel out of place.

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Thanks to wohlfs for this one! Pours a clear light amber with a smallish head. Malt is the dominant aroma, but there are some hops coming through as well. This is a mild only by 3 Floyd’s standards. Smooth palate, malty with a good balance of hops. Lightly carbonated and very drinkable.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 23, 2005
This is billed as a mild, but I don’t think this is brewed to style. I guess it’s mild compared to the other beers in their lineup. Pleasant citrus hoppy aroma. There’s a little bit of biscuity malt in the flavor, but this is mainly hop driven. The hops remind me of grapefruit, but there’s a grassy flavor there, too. Light carbonation, which I liked because it enhanced the smooth, soft overall impression this beer gives off. Clean mouthfeel. This would make a BOMB session ale.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Pours a dull orange color, small whiteh ead. Lots of bubbly white lacing around the edge. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit and tropical fruit notes. Flavor is hoppy and acidic I really dont find this to be too "mild". Very assertive hops, dry finish.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 15, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2005 (12 oz bottle, obtained in trade with marinaro500, thanks Joe!) This is very tasty and enjoyable, but this beer clearly does not even vaguely resemble what a mild ale should be. Sure, the hops profile is mild compared to other Three Floyds products, but there’s still quite a noticeable hops contribution in this beer. It’s moderately bitter, with an obvious grapefruit flavor. A rather light maltiness is just along for the ride, as hops is certainly driving this car. Strong grapefruit aromas match the flavor. Clean, crisp mouthfeel with medium body. Pale golden amber color, with a slightly hazy appearance. Off-white head pours to an average size, and fades to a thin, patchy film. Only a few spots of lace are left on the glass. If I rated beers to style, I’d take off serious points. But I rate to my taste, and this beer tastes very good.

screigh (477) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Poured a nice looking copper color. Small white head that lasted the entire beer with minor lacing. This beer tasted like a typical every day beer with a kick of traditional Three Floyds’ hops. While I love Dreadnaught and those Three Floyds’ hops I thought it wasn’t right for this "mild" beer. I liked it but think I would just buy Aplha King instead.
