On tap at Bear Republic in August 2009.
Poured a nice amber caramel with a nice off-white head. A bit of lacing on the way down. Overall, a pretty nice smell, but a little bit lacking, even for how small the beer is. Smells a bit fruity with a few dark sugars. The flavor is an improvement with a little bit more of the yeast coming through in addition to the caramel, toffee, and slight dark fruit presence. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but overall drinkability was good. A nice beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Draft. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and metal as well as lighter notes of sulphur. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and metal, as well as lighter notes of metal, leading to a bitter finish. The body is light. dnstone (4003) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Very bready aroma. Amber in color. Bready taste as well with a bit of an herbal tea finish. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2010
GABF 2009. Pours a medium copper, clear, thin white head. Aroma is nutty, earthy light roast, some nutty chocolate, toast, light dirt, and grassy hops. Flavor is herbal, caramel and toffee sweetness, light fruit, nuts and hay with grass. Pretty smooth. alexsdad06 (11389) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2010
Draft sample @ brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma is weaker and is slightly roasted grains, earthy, floral, and lightly fruity. The flavor is more of the same; grainy malts, earthy, floral, light fruits, with a decent level of bitterness in the finish for 3.2%. Light-medium bodied and a decent break in between some of the bigger beers.

In short: A well done true english style leafy dark Mild/Bitter Ale. Good beer.potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2009
How: Tap at Red Bones, Boston
The look: Partly cloudy amber body topped by a very small off-white head
In long: Light but pleasant nose with leafy hops. Body is soft and lean but not watery. Taste of bread crust, grainy cereals bringing a forest floor character, dry tree leafs, some raisins. A generous amount of leafy hops. Finish is moderately bitter with a nice light dirty dryness. This is pretty much what I expect from a good dark Mild Ale. Actually I have been served Bitters in England that tasted just like this. A beer like this should only be served cask conditioned. A pretty decent session beer if you ask me. Seeing the low ratings average on ratebeer for a 3.2% Mile Ale was as shocking as finding that my mother is not a virgin.
Tasting at GABF. Yellow/brown. White head mild nut and mild sweet malt nose. Watered down taste of light malts. bu11zeye (13288) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2009
