NABA 08’: Pours a coppery brown color with light head. The nose is intensely malty with lots of caramel and melanoidins. Toast, biscuit, coffee. Amazingly malty mouthfeel and a creamy toasty finish. So good, I wish I could take more of this away. Wow! Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Big thanks to douglas88 for the growler of this top notch Mild Ale. It pours dark brown with amber hues and tan head. The aroma has a touch of earthiness to go along with some malt roast and the faintest sense of hoppiness. I get both malts and roast in the initial pulse of flavor. Those notes are followed by a fairly deep dark earthiness to midway. Into the finish the earthiness begins to recede leaving a pleasing malts roastiness, a touch of dryness and a sense of vague hop bitterness. The after taste has roast and just a bit of chocolate malts. Very nice. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Thanks to IBrew2or3 for sharing the growler of this. Pours cola brown with an off-white head. Nose is malt, some nuts, and a bit of bitterness. Flavor is, well, mild, with malt, hops, and some roastiness with distinguishable chocolate. Finishes clean with some dissipating roast flavors. Enjoyable mild. kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Pours a clear dark cola brown with thin white head. Aroma is lightly roasted and malty with notes of caramel, tight toffee, hints of coffee and nuts. Flavor is sweet and malty with notes of roasted coffee, chocolate, floral hops, some burnt sugar and honey. Generally light body with a slightly malty finish. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 15, 2009
2009 Growler - Thanks Douglas88! - Pours thin brown with a small tan head...aroma is dry dark malt, grain, toasted bread...flavour is similar, dry and dirty (in a good way), with the roast and grain providing a nice backbone to a brew designed to be lighter...finish is nicely bitter, the flavour to alcohol quotient is off the charts, who knew a mild could offer so much...I always appreciate a beer that you can drink before 7 in the morning and feel good about! Thanks again...

on tap 7/23/10 and the best beer at hoppers by a long shot.
dark amber with an off white head and a bunch of drippy lace.
it smells like raisins rehydrated in wort!... malt, earth, toasted nuts and hoppy spices.
the flavor is the same... really raisin-y and wort-y with notes of nuts, peppery spice, chocolate, florals and molasses.
medium bodied, highly sessionable and unexpectedly delicious! 7/4/7/4/16/3.8 douglas88 (9064) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2008 On tap at the brewpub. This beer won gold in 2007 at GABF, so I had to have it. Pours a dark brown with a medium cream colored head. The aroma is sweet toast and some honey. The taste is a great example of a English-style mild; roasted coffee and a strong toasted malt, also, some bitterness in the finish. Really well made. Smooth and easy, but also damn tasty. A great job. BuckeyeBoy (7543) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Growler thanks to Douglas. Pours out a brownish red topped with a tan head. Aroma was actually pretty nice. Light toasted nut and some malts. Taste was more of the nuts and a good bitterness. I was very surprised by this 4% Utah brew. SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2008
On tap @ Hoppers. Deep brown colored pour with a nice tightly packed off-white head. Light roasted coffee, chocolate, nuts and honey in the aroma. Great roasted malt and coffee in the flavor as well. Sweet malty finish. Smooth and creamy in the mouth. This is my first Mild Ale so I have nothing to compare it to, but it is delicious! Sledutah (7491) - Utah, USA - MAY 18, 2010
