MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Mild brown yellow color and a good sized foam head. Aroma is malty, the very sweet. Floral notes as well as orange, coriander and ginger are present. Flavor is smooth and very mild, with a decent maltyness to travel the length of any presence of the brew.

Although this is certainly not my favorite style, this ale smells and tastes of Three Floyds’ quality. Large head, nice hoppy aroma, and flavor. Much like the Alpha King but more mild. Would make a good starter for someone to develop their appetite for it.

09.27.04 12oz bottle thanks to Marinaro500. Pale yellow pour, slight haze, giant white head. The usual FFF scale-like floaty things bobbing about. Aroma is not malty at all, just a burst of orange and grapefruit hoppiness. Sharp citric flavor, light body. Isn’t a mild ale supposed to be all malt and no hops? Well, nothing like what I expected, but what FFF beer is? One dimensional, but an interesting quaff.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2004
A bit cloudy and an orangish amber color. Great sweet malt aroma and slight hop bouquet. The taste is somewhat bitter. and nicely so at that, but obviously lacking in bitterness like many milds do. There is some spice and more hop at the ending, a very nice beer, but doesn’t completely fit the style.

DrunkenLooser (22) - Frankfort, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Hazy gold colour with nice head. Fair amount of carbonation. Citrus taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel. Very refreshing. Great ale for a summer afternoon.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Growler from Munster: clear amber with a full, rocky, beige head…characteristic 3F piney hop aroma, but not as much caramel as some of the others. Slow-moving light bitterness that is only ‘mild’ when compared to AK or Dreadnaught…nice big hop profile, but I am not getting much else – for the Hop Lover; Indeed.

Cornfield (5504) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 An appealing hazy gold body with a sustained white head, this ale greets you with the hopped-up aroma that made me a fan of the Three Floyds people. It’s got an easy going flavor obviously designed to introduce ales to the "lagers only" beer drinkers. Nice. A good, clean, crisp drink with a slight, mildly bitter citric finish.

Bottle pours a slightly hazy light golden, miniscule white fizzly head, healthy carbonation, with attractive lacing.   Light hops and a bit of melon & apricot on the nose.   Forwardly hoppy, not very malty.   Subtle floral notes, but not getting any of the fruit that I had in the aroma.   Decent body and mouthfeel, but quite one dimensional.   Finishes with a fleating bitterness.   Seems fairly hoppy/bitter for a Mild Ale.   Thanks goes out to atpayne for the trade!

(draft) My first beer in this style. I didn’t detect too much of anything except a trace of bitter aftertaste. The beer was very drinkable and would make a good session beer.

another good outing from 3 floyds....do they ever dissapoint? i think not! just counting down my brews til i get to 100, and have the opportunity to test their dark lord! or is that Dark Lord? not sure if youre supposed to capitalize like in the bible or not. anyways, this was similar to most their other great ales, but a not quite matching up to any of them. Buying this reminded me of my pre-good beer days, when me and a bud picked up a 6’r of this because it looked funny. liked it even back then......but i had no idea! overall i think mild pretty much sums this brew up.....hops, flavor, alcohol, etc....all mild. but good nonetheless.
