(22oz bottle via trade with Josh) clear rich orange-brown with few bubbles. Nose of sweet caramel, mild alcohol, some fermented apples and cream. Taste of alcohol, sweet caramel, mild spices appear due to heat from the alcohol, cinnamon. A bit too grassy/spicy with a creamy, warming finish. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle, Shenandoah Throwdown. Pours a slightly hazy light copper body with a small wispy off-white head. Light nose, a little bit of husky and grainy maltiness, slightly sweet. The flavor is a little fruity with some light hops and a little caramel malt. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a touch of clingy sweetness, soft carbonation. Pretty forgetable, though not especially bad. wavers1 (916) - Notown, California, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Wow, what a beer. courtesy of gn0sis, thank you! This thing drinks like water, tastes perfectly hoppy and malty, full in the body but a light aftertaste, refreshing, just wow. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2010
22oz Bottle. Interesting warm grainy aroma, with some orange character and piney hoppiness. Pours a surprising pale orange, even, lightly hazed and a rim of whitish. Foamy texture brings some serious booze to the palate and a unique multi-grain texture. Lots and lots of booze, almost gin-like - I think this comes from the intense hop dose. It’s interesting. Nicely attenuated and with a tangy hop finish. Different and fun. I appreciate the high level of alcohol character with noticeable raw green hops and dryness. mar (5434) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2010

22 oz bottle. Lightly fogged orange brown with a creamy head. Nose is orange juice concentrate, pineapple and toffee; really sweet. Sticky, full bodied with enough of a tang to keep the palate lively. Taste is nectarine, peach, strawberry and watermelon; an explosion of fruitiness. Dry finish with grapefruit and gin. Drinks like a West Coast barleywine. bbbeer (843) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Brown with small head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Full body. Alcohol noticable but not overwhelming. Malty caramely flavors but a lot of hops as well. Don’t know if this is really a mild ale but it was pretty tasty. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2010
bottle pours brown with a medium off white head. Nose is full of bready malts and floral hops. Flavor is toasted and doughy malts with sweet honey and some earthy notes of wood or tobacco. harrisoni (18970) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2010
Bottle at ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting. Amber colour, thin beige head. Recipe from Ron Pattinson. sweetish aorma. Bit boozy. Clementine satsuma friesh zest on finish. sweet, toffee-ish, some hop. A mild? Who knows. Sweetish as you would expect from the malt.
