2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer-judging sized sampler. Light brown in color, but very hoppy in nose and taste. Borders on pale ale territory, but my bartender says it is a mild.
Amusingly, Piece is calling this a Mild Ale, despite it's being on the hoppier side of an Amber Ale. Whatever, it is what it is, and if it's good, I'm the last to complain. I just question why they didn't try their own beer before naming it. A tad sweet with lingering bitterness. OK.
