Dark brown pour, grainy aroma and taste. badgerben (5254) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Cask. Dark copper/brown color with a medium head. Light malt aroma. Flavor is full of oats and grain. Light chocolate. Very full bodied, though likely a large part of that is due to the beer engine. Delicious. JK (6240) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2010
ABV seems a little high for a mild, but I like the beer. Cloudy and dark gold. Lightly roasted grain with a smooth palate. It is a mild, so not a lot to say. BVery (10716) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Tap. Chestnut brown pour with a white foamy head (cask pour). Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Semi-creamy texture. Spice, bread, fruit. very nice mild ale - I could drink a bunch of these. Nuffield (4187) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Deep chestnut brown color. Nice cream head. There are a lot of qualities that make this a proper English mild--and to its credit, a good all around beer. Grape (fruity), roast, and chocolate flavors. Thin body but that’s what you get with a mild. All the flavors of a good roasted beer but light body and alcohol. I wasn’t having a session but I can appreciate the sessionable quality here. Good mild, esp. when served by hand-pull. At the brewpub in St. Paul with my bud, Jazz88.

On draught during Autumn Brew Review 2009 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a semi-hazy dark brown colored brew with a creamy off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, some burnt biscuits, flowery hops and a touch of pumpernickel. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of toasted biscuits, flowery hops some light herbs and dried tea. Finish is semi-dry with a toasted bread crust and biscuit aftertaste. Mild bitterness, if any.
