Mild ales rose to popularity in the 1800s as the refreshing brew of choice for English railway laborers. This modern mild, a smooth, sweet, malty brew with a hint of ruby color, is still a satisfying choice for the end of a long day.

heemer77 (5344) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle. Light smells of caramel and hints of dough. This is light on the nose. A nice reddish tinted brown colored body. This is softly carbonated. A little hint of toasted nuts complement the light caramel. Nicely done.

kevinator (2171) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Unexcited. This was my first of this style so that may have something to do with it. It tasted like a malty Boston Lager. The aroma was faint and consisted mainly of malt grains. The color was unassuming and light coppery brown with a good white head. The palate was average on all fronts. The flavors were of different grains with a little sourness and roasted touch. Virtually no hops presence, which I understand is to be expected. Worth a try but not a repeat visit.

MadRobin (2929) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Clear, dark orange-red with a small pale khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of malt, dates, figs and cookies. Taste of caramel, dates, nuts and biscuit malt. Medium body and high/medium carbonization. I'm not sure how a 5.6% ABV ale qualifies as a mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StefanSD (2436) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2013
12 oz bottle from a mix pack. Pours a translucent brown color with a small beige head that audibly hisses and fizzes away. The aroma is soft with toffee malts and dusty grains. The taste is a bit of stone fruit and toffee malts. The palate was a bit tin and the carbonation was lively. Finished medium in duration with a metallic aftertaste. Overall: meh

Pours a clear golden brown. Aroma of malt and cinnamon. Taste is sweet and syrupy but subdued. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hotstuff (5078) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Rated on 10-25-2013 (Bottle) When poured, this beer forms a large fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished, transparent amber body, fair amount of lacing, and fizzy, slow rising carbonation. The Aroma is caramel and bread malts and light citrus. The Taste is semi-sweet, bread, caramel and biscuit malts, hint of citrus and has a short dry finish. The Palate is smooth and this beer is light bodied. Overall, this is a session beer and a beer where the malts dominate. There is very little character and WOW factor to this beer. This is a beer that I might drink again.

Dacrza (929) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2013
DATE TASTED: September 21, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Howards Pub pint glass... OCCASION: first a strong PSU win...APPEARANCE: beautiful chestnut-red body with a creamy white head; laces sporadically and slickly... AROMA: sweet,, slightly toasted oat malts with sot hops--the citrus is secondary to the doughy malts--ESB in its scent...PALATE: medium-bodied, rewardingly smooth and just substantial enough to have a presence...TASTE: malty, mild and unobtrusively sweet... OVERALL: a rather straight-laced, straight-forward, functionally sessionable beer--not one Id seek out or miss, but one I would enjoy over a variety of mouth-rinsing macros...

poisoneddwarf (2476) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 25, 2013
12 oz bottle from the Fall Variety Pack. Aroma is toasted marshmallow, fruity esters, bread. Pours a pretty clear amber with a one finger off-white head that collapses after a minute. Nice sweet malty flavors, roasty. Highly carbonated with a creamy mouthfeel and medium body. I dont have a lot of experience with this style, but it tastes good to me.

thedm (6049) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 25, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light red brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was malty and musty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow caramel hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of Irish red malt caramel and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

CharmCityCrab (244) - Maryland, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Swampy with hints of mint, caramel, and toffee. Fourth sweet beer of six in the SA fall mix pack, and the worst of the four. Tolerable, but largely pedestrian. Would prefer a rauchbier or a new fall brew replace it in next years mix pack (Not red ale again. Enough with that.).
