Iím not a big fan of the "Mild Ale" style, but this one was very nice. It poured turbid dark straw with a small white head. Aroma of malt, hops, fruit. Tasted malty, with some hops, spice, fruit, and florals at the finish. This one had some IPA and some ESB qualities to it. Great mouthfeel, and a complex finish. I have found many milds to taste like unsweetened iced tea with a little caramel thrown in. This one was different, and lusciously complex.

Pours thin weak foam, gold amber brew. Strong intense hop aroma, clear, pleasant, fresh orange, a bit flowery aroma. Hops , but not only .The flavour was dominated by hops as you might guess , but here you will find distinctive peach notes that softens that ale considerably and makes more drinkable . Long bitter finish, good feel pleasant ale. Thanks Joe!

A very hoppy ping in the aroma, with a small, tight head, pretty lace too. Orange zest flavour, a malt presence as well. Light bodied, crispy, lovely texture. A very good beer, but a mild? Thank You joey_capps.

Slightly hazy amber w/ finger of white foam. Good lacing. Fresh, flowery citrus aroma w/ hint of caramel & mint. Light refreshing feel. Nice light, crisp hop flavour w/ a clean maltiness & a juicy fruitiness. Bitterness lingers somewhat.

As others have pointed out this is not really a mild, more a light pale ale. A good brew nonetheless.

wonderful nose that does not match the flavor. Very malty in taste, very citric hoppy in nose. Deep yellow in color, good, though no AK...

Also know as "Fun & Play" by relatives of mine who couldnít be less interested. Dark Amber color, big head. Very good beer. Good flavors, good hops and malts, sweet, full bodied. Very good beer. Iím going to keep some of the extras of this for me because I really like it.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 itís a session brew with its lime or lemon (or whatever you need for your swill) built within it! soft and light, more complex than any "standard" beer, but nothing huge at all. a little biscuit, caramel, and citrus. itís also a bit prickly. its ABV is typical of micro-typicalness, which in my eyes is evidence for a good session brew. try it out! sneak a brew to a friend whose had a couple coronas ;o) this seems to convert people. and to be honest, i didnít know what to really except for a mild ale so i assumed it should be simple in recipe and easy to drink, or at least seemingly so... i rate as i know. UPDATE 12/21/05: mmm, i popped the cap and just knew, just knew! iím dealing with 3Floyds. itís been awhile since i had this brew... average, slightly hazy, golden-amber body with minimal white head and fair lacing; very citrusy, but itís coupled with a lot of pine, and the sweet maltiness really does cut the hops down despite that itís quite hoppy; a solid good brew, and would still work great for a session--rating remains the same.

I bought a growler of this at the brewery. This definitely fits well under the label "mild ale." The body is a pale amber colour with a thick creamy head. This is a good brew for someone who wants more flavor from their beer than what a pale ale has to offer. But if you want to truely appreciate the work of Three Floyds, try something a little more interesting.

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.
