Black, creamy white head. Subdued aroma. Flavour of some dark malts, soft chocolate and coffee. OK for the low abv.

Strykzone (7797) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pint can. Black with red and a tan layer of foam. I smell sweet malts and lactic. Soft fruit is tasted first with cream. Very gentle hops. The feel moves from thin to creamy. A hint of roasted notes and the softest bitterness. Mild grassiness. Lots of gentle stuff in here and the best is the 3.2 ABV.

This is a great 3.2 beer. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. This beer is creamy goodness, it has a sweet and roasted dark malt flavor. There is also a great chocolate and coffee taste with a yummy hoppy under tone. The only negative to this beer is it is slightly watered down.

Pershing (594) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Pours dark brown into an English pint glass. quick dissolving tan head with large bubbles. Aroma of Roasted Barley and toffee amd caramel. Nice hop balance with the malt. Thin feel on the palate but a perfect match for the style. Nice refreshing lingering finish.

Rando7 (787) - Iowa, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Can pours opaque dark brown with medium tan head. Sweet malty aroma with tiny hop presence. Taste chocolate malts, slight roast and vanilla. Palate on the watery side. Mild finish of roast and slight hops. Alcohol not apparent.

I agree with others this has a lot of flavor for a mild beer, combining sessionability and taste well.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Aroma is sweet malt with hints of dark fruit. Pours a dark brown with a lasting tan ring and no lacing. The taste is slighly sweet and as the name implies, the flavors are not overwhelming but rather subtle. Malt and vanilla notes with a hint of hop bitterness in the finish. Watery mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Overall, my take on this brew is rather mild.

ManVsBeer (11126) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Dark ale, no head with some redeeming aroma and taste which disappears all too quickly when drank. Aroma is mild roast.

deanso (10266) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - OCT 24, 2012
440ml can. Thick creamy tan head. Dark black pour. Pretty good for only 3.2%. Very drinkable.

DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2012
440ml can. Date on bottom reads "23 - Aug - 12". Dark color, good creamy khaki head leaves nice lace and has good retention. Good roasty malts, light hop flavor. Very light body, smooth creamy lighter carbonation. Nice light bitter, light sweet taste. Although it’s a bit watery, this is a great, refreshing, yet flavorful light beer. Easy to drink.

Robbievegas (469) - Las vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Tried this on tap at The Red Lion in Houston, TX. Dark roasted malt flavor with espresso and cocoa notes, interestingly light ( I guess that's the mild part in the name) not something I would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
