COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are 11 different grains and sugar in this beer, giving it the complexity and similarity to a barleywine grain bill, but it only clocks in at 3.6% ABV.  Very faint nuances of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and coffee, with just enough earthy English hops for balance.  Get the flavor and drink more than one!

Clear light red brown color with thin off white lacing. Clean medium aroma of barley. No aromas that are too large. Palate is very indicative of a good english mild. Bring on the fish and chips.

As I delve deeper into the world of beer, my appreciation for the sessionable beer grows. As a 31 year old father and husband, I can’t spend my evenings drinking three or four nine percent beers. Thus, I owe a deep debt of gratitude to brewers who make the effort to craft enjoyable low alcohol beers. This is just such a beer. In only wish I could get some of this beer in cans for those long Georgia Football Saturdays. Poured a darker brown than I expected. Flavor was strong for such a low ABV. Great all day type beer. Draft - Wrecking Bar Brew Pub - Atlanta, GA

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2013
On tap at brewpub. Pours hazy dark amber with white head. Aromas of caramel, dark malts, biscuit, dark fruits, and a little chocolate. Flavors are sweet bready malts with some caramel, fruit, and light chocolate. Flavorful little beer.

theisti (3210) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Nonic Pint draft at the brew pub in Atlanta, Georgia. The pour is a hazed brown copper ruby, with a 1/2 inch tan head. The beer was served really cold. The aroma is light roast, some fruit sweet, and faint apple skin. The taste starts with the lightly char roast, moves smoothly to biscuit malt, and finishes with a light fruit sweetness that is clean. The palate is light bodied, with active carbonation, and the clean slightly sweet finish. This beer was a watery at first, though it picked up body as it warmed. Nice clean flavorful mild.

rbrazell (1620) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Amber pour with a creamy white head. Nutty, caramel malts and hint of coffee in the aroma. Flavor is pretty similar with some grassy and earthy hops coming through in the end. Light and sessionable. Pretty good.

Brewvival Trip Beer 45. Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear red-amber color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts and chocolate. The taste is herbal hops, nuts, caramel, toasted malts and honey. Thin-medium bodied. Nice.

Cybercat (3257) - Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours a lovely clear mahogany, more red than brown - not much head, but that is from the pour plus the time to get to my table, and it does leave some good lacing. Malty aroma has a hint of cloves. Malty flavor is indeed mild - this is a pleasant beer for sipping during good conversation, or with a meal. I get hints of caramel and cloves. Smooth, firm texture has a strong and persistent fizz. A tip of the cap to a decent ale.

ChainGangGuy (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Appearance: Served up a dark amber, near brown body with a wispy, ivory-hued head.

Smell: Notes swirling around smelling of coffee (albeit mild coffee), unsweetened chocolate, toasted, and squashed fruits.

Taste: Reserved, mild coffee flavor with a taste of breadcrumbs. Very light caramel sweetness. Short-lived but welcome fruitiness, showing a hint of apple and sweet grapes. Low dried herb hop character and soft bitterness. Malty but still fairly dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: A very tasty, flavorful mild ale.
