Bottle, from the brewery. Pure amber color. Pretty easy drink all the way. Pleasant enough mellow biscuity malt is the predominate thing here. Maybe just a bit of sweet green apple finish. (#4687, 7/9/2012) maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours an almost copper color with a medium white head. Has a smell of dirty socks. Almost skunky taste to it. Not one of my favorite styles... GandGKevin (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Sweet malt and light hop aromas. Citrus hop and a little biscuit flavors. Overall pretty decent. FugarwiNation (15) - North Logan, Utah, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Slight smell of grass; cloudy golden, amber in color with a generous of white head; light sweetness, medium body, creamy, average carbonation. Good bear. Epic rules! tia (2226) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2012
Bottle @ SF. Murky amber with sudsy head. Smells a little like honey and daisies and spice. Not real sweet. A little watery.

Sampled at Slutfest 3. Near clear amber with MASSIVE head. EXTEREMLY over carbonated. You can taste the carbonation. Malty biscuity and caramel. Hints of honey suckle. Didn’t care for it. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2012
Poured from 22 oz. bottle.
Hazy brownish orange with 2 finger head that quickly settled to a thin film with excellent lacing.
Subtle aroma of bready malts and caramel.
Taste is bready and nutty with a little floral bitter hops. There is an unpleasant flavor in the finish that I can't quite place--like bitter butter maybe.
Mouthfeel is medium light with foamy carbonation.
I'm not a fan of pale milds, but I found the taste of this one particularly unimpressive.

Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a slightly hazy light amber. Soapy odd-white head and moderate carbonation. Aroma is hazelnut, bread, fruit and caramel. Taste is sweet that follows suit with the aroma. Thin to medium bodied with a smooth finish. Tasty and easy to drink. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap. Clear golden pour with a smaller white head. Nose is herbal, sweet, and I’m reminded of bug spray a bit. Medium to lighter palate. Taste is mild, some grass, and honey. Decent. robertjm (892) - Albany, California, USA - MAR 13, 2012
(trade w/Douglas88) - Release #8 - Small head. Rust color like a bucket of water that sat out all winter long. Slightly hoppy aroma. Flavor well balanced between hops and malty character. Normal body. A good solid mild ale that I wouldn’t have tried except for getting it as an extra in a trade!!
