4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer poured a standard amber color with a small head and didnít leave much lacing on the glass. The aroma was very hoppy with hints of caramel. Doesnít smell much like a mild, more like an IPA. The flavor is dead on what I think a mild should be, regardless of the overhopped aroma. Very smooth and light. Finishes slightly bitter, but within the mild area. Very well done beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
First letís be clear: this is not an English-style mild. American Pale Ale is probably a better style for this. Bottle from 6-pack from brewery. Pours orange. Aroma of fruity American hops and light bready malt. Taste is, in fact, mild, with light carmalts and citrus fruits, and a light bitter finish. Smooth body. Enjoyable and very sessionable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Letís not call it a mild, and itís probably a better beer. If you like UK milds, it doesnít fit--more an amber (including in the appearance) and the abv, at almost 5%, is still higher than the roasted, malty 3%abv milds of the UK. As an amber, this is o.k., with obviously floral effects from the hop and a little murky grassiness. Not as bright as I would have liked. (on tap, The Stone Tap, Hudson, WI)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ the 3 FFFs on 30 November, 2013. Color is kind of orange copper tone. Fruity nose of grapes and a mix of citrus that I canít define as grapefruit or some type of melon. The palate is indeed clean, but itís mostly sweetness with a high level of carbonation. Some citrus hops. Easy to drink.

Dark orange. Nose is cherries and cranberries. Mildly hopped. Has a very simple profile. Good fishing beer but overall, very weak

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Atom! Thanks. Pours a medium red with a big white head. Aroma is orange, slight caramel, old books and leather. Taste is like old books smell. Some slight fruit and malt. More sweet than Iíd expect but not over the top. Some clove and cinnamon. Overall, not bad but Iím not that familiar with this style.

12oz bottle pours a hazy copper orange with a large khaki head after an aggressive pour. Aroma of citrus orange, hop spice, and caramel malt. Taste similar to aroma mild soft caramel toffee malts, with orange citrus, an almost rye like hop spice, and a touch of bitterness.
