On tap at the brewery. This brew poured a large foamy head of white colored finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent dark orange yellow colored uncarbonated body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was hoppy and the mouthfeel was ingly and bitter at the start yet mellowed in the finish. It had a hoppy flavor to boot. It was more like a pale ale than an American mild.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2004 Poured an amber color with a small off white head and some lacing. Nice, mild citrus hop aroma, mixed with some maltiness as well. Caramel maltiness is balanced well by the hops that sneak up on you. If I could find this in cases, I would buy it up! Rerate I found a case and bought it up! This stuff rocks! Crisp and clean, citrus hop taste. Subtle, yet extremely satisfying, I could drink this all day long!

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 31, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2003 This brew pours a thin dirty white head along with an opaque orangish brown body. As expected, it is lightly carbonated and the flavor and aroma are absent of hops. This is a very easy drinking beer with a slightly tart taste on the tongue. You can see having a few of these with your friends down at a pub.

Room temp - I was too impatient to chill it - Brown, white head. malty aroma. Rich and full boddied, with a mellow citrus and fruity hop flavor, the an a full malty finish. Reminded me of a lot of British Ales.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2003
On tap at Brewery: Hazy amber hue with little head. Big piney aroma, did they change the recipe or is it that different on tap? The pourer working said no, but I still wonder. Other aromas are toasted malt and mild fruity tones. The taste had a piney and grapefruit kick with a good malty base. Dry and bitter finish. Fizzy mouthfeel. Overall, its a high quality pale ale, mild? Hardly! Very nice on tap, so much aggressive than the older bottled version.

Copper body with a small tannish white head. Nose is malty and has a nice bit of hoppiness to it. The flavor reveals more of the hoppiness with a grapefruit and pine mix. Finishes with some malt sweetness. Another good Three Floyds beer!

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Lighter orange color than the Alpha King with a thin off-white head. The aroma was, well, mild. Some very sweet maltiness and faint citrusy/piney hops. The flavor was just as mild with a definite sweet malty core...almost sugary. Medium thick feel...very soft. Nice.

Bottle, cool, not cold. Pours amber with a nice head that largely disappears within a minute. Aroma is citrus hop, honey and malt. Refreshing taste is malt, grapefruit, with a decent hop bite. Very slight metallic in aftertaste. A nice clean pale ale with no onslaught of malt or hop but with a nice balance and mild flavors. I guess thats why they called it a mild ale? Tis a tasty brew that is a refreshing change from the hop-wars veterans.

Kind of an amber orange color,small fat fading white head very slight lacing.Malty,citrusy aroma with a very well done hops presence.The taste is mildly bitter with a mild malt and medium hop taste mild citrus as well.As it warms up a bit i can detect an almost pine needle like aroma starting to show up.The after taste was mellow hops and a decent bitterness,with the feel being a bit watery but still fairly smooth.Very nice brew.

Poured at the brewery. A great session beer, in terms of a break from the 3F's tastebud onslaught. A lite amber that is fragrant and floral. From teh first to the last sip, this beer is crisp and refreshing. Slightly toasty with a light and refreshing palate. This beer is yet another brew that fits nicely into the 3F's portfolio.
