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.

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.

Good, but doesn’t hold a candle to AK or Dread, but how could it really? Nice hop aroma and pleasant, but just not very interesting. Nice to see that they’re increasing the number of beers they put in sixers

I’m 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.
