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

Orange pour with a slight white head around the edges. There are FAR more hops in the aroma than I expected from a mild. Not as much hops in the flavor as the aroma, with a decent malt backbone. Lacing on the glass too. Pretty nice, but the hops are little excessive for a mild. I think its sad that american beer makers canít make a single style without a crap load of hops. "Mild refers to lack of any hop flavor or aroma."

Thanks to Wohlfs for the bottle. Didnít know what to expect in a mild ale so was pleasantly surprised when I got a strong bitter hop smell with the same taste and a touch of malt. Even had lacing in the glass. Click the mild ale definition to see there should be no hops present? HMMMM? Good thing I rate for my tastebuds and not style.

Clear and still light copper color with a thin water head. BIG perfumey aroma. Bitter citric flourish in the flavors, flowery and rounded. Only down-side is itís a bit watery.

Pour is a light orange. Aroma is very citric and hoppy. Flavor is crisp, hoppy and slightly peppery. Very refreshing and nice.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Clear amber. Nose hoppy and citric. Quite hoppy up front, bit biscuity with a mite of caramel. Pretty enjoyable stuff, but "mild". I guess, all things considered, this is pretty mild for Three Floydís and all. If I were rating this to style itíd be incredibly lowly rated, because it ainít a mild.

bottle. Christmas gift, and a nice one at that. orangey amber in color with a slightly off-white head. still some lacing left half way down the glass. a little bit hoppy but mild overall. it would be quite easy to knock down several of these when its time to kick back and relax.

Pailhead (5061) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Bottle: Citrus hop aroma. Pours a transparent amber with a small white head. Flavor is very light. Light citrus up front with a light hop finish. Rather thin and bland. Just not a lot happening here.

When I think "mild", Three Floyds beers arenít the first thing to spring to mind. However, leave it to them to make one that leaves an impression. Lightly hazy amber color with a thin eggshell white head. Thin lacing too. The aroma is mildy hoppy with a pinch of citrus. Light-bodied and surprisingly crisp, with a moderately bitter amount of hops throughout. Underlying sweetness and citrus flavors make this simply one of the best session ales I have ever had. It was gone before I even knew it. The finish retains the hops, with lightly sweet malt here and there. An outstanding Mild Ale.

hopscotch (9490) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Lightly hazy, golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent lace. Smells and tastes like a piney and citrusy glass of American iced tea. Light to Medium-bodied with a dry, fizzy mouthfeel. Crisp bitterness, but almost no malt backbone. High ABV for a mild ale and way overhopped for the style. However, thatís the "Three Floyds Way" and I dig it. This is the one beer to drink when youíre going to drink twelve... and have a serious hop jones going on.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2005 Clear copper with a white head. Big citric hoppy nose. Taste has notes of subtle maltiness and is big on the citrus/grapefruit flavors and Centennial hops. Only moderately sweet, bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied but not watery or weak. Good head retention. Lacing hangs in sheets on the glass. Very solid brew but not really a mild.
