Appearance: Lightly hazed, dark copper body with a small, short-lived, white head.
Smell: Mild nose with hints of grainy bread and earthy hops. Not too much to it, really.
Taste: Delicate, lightly sweet bready malts with a modest grainy character to it. Very, very faint fruitiness. Touch of earthy hops with a hint of bitterness -- all of it gone in a flash. Dry, clean, but quick finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: A brew that makes for quick, easy drinking, though the tastes presented are fleeting, leaving me wanting for a return of the more pronounced AK-47 Mild (or a variation thereof). kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2009

Tap. Poured clear gold with a white head. Aroma of malty, with some light fruit, faint grain. The taste is lightly hopped, with malt and fruit also coming through. Mouth is light and flavor is pretty big. Like the low alcohol, but a little too much grain. Nice beer though. mattvervack (28) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2009
I think it would have been a decent mild had they not messed with it. Reading the review prior to mine (the only other one at this time) I see he found it to be tainted too, although he was guessing fouled lines and taste of strawberry. I got a taste of mint and cardomom. Its not sour like fouled lines, so its the purposeful addition of some spice that ruined the beer. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2009
on tap-pours an off white head and yellow color. Aroma is musty light malt/grain, fruit, spice hops. Taste is musty light malt/grain-slight caramel, herbal hops.

Pours a cloudy orange/gold/tan. The aroma is soft and fruity with subtle notes of grassy hops. The flavor is a bit light (yeah, I know its a mild/bitter, but this is a bit too light - more specialty grains could give it more flavor without adding alcohol). It is quite fruity with odd hop and ester overtones like apricot and strawberry. The strawberry gets too strong towards the finish. (Could this be a tainted draft line?) Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and very creamy with low level of suds (nice, dreamy cask mouthfeel). Overall, a bit disappointment. The wierd fruitiness totally overpowered any hop or malt character of the beer. If the line wasn’t tainted, then a different hop and/or yeast selection would go a long way.Cybercat (6145) - Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2009

Pours orange and mostly clear. Aroma is slightly fruity/estery with some light malt character. The flavor is pleasantly malty, fruity, and neutral in the finish. It is very lightly bittered for balance - not hoppy. Overall, a very drinkable brew that is a little light on flavor. A touch more dark malt character (like from crystal 120 or maybe a touch of pale chocolate) and some dry hops could really make this beer shine.
Comes out of the tap a cloudy honey-golden with a decent pale orange-yellow head. Firm aroma is malty with hints of yeast and fruits. Pleasing flavor is mainly malty and has a hoppy undertone as well as a whisper of fruit. Texture is lively and jazzy so it tingles all the way down.

On tap at the brewpub, listed as "Re-Session Pub Draft".
Pours a bright hazy yellow orange underneath a short-lived bubbly white head that leaves no lacing.
The aroma has a touch of light hops up front with pale malts and more than a hint of honey sweetness.
The taste starts with the same hoppy kick before the pale malts and honey sweetness take over. The finish is sweet but also has a slight prickly presence from the hops.
The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with minimal carbonation.
I can’t say that I’m extremely familiar with this style but this is an extremely drinkable session ale that goes down super smooth but has enough flavor to make it a very good beer.
