Bottle. Pours a deep amber color. Big time citrus hops in the nose. A little thin in body with hops predominating the taste. A super hopped Mild??? Like a malt deficient APA. Still, a decent beer to drink. Cobra (1100) - - NOV 28, 2004
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a bright copper color, with a long lasting white head. It left sticky lacing down the sides of the glass. Brilliantly clear, beautiful to behold. Aromas are of fresh Noble hops, along with a nice floral scent. Sweet malts, and barn silo aromas as well. Tastes are of hops at first, then the smooth malts slide into the palate. Medium mouthfeel, rich for the style. Finishes bitter, and slightly dry.
A great session beer from Three Floyds.

Clear amber color with no head. Strong hops aroma. Very floral and bitter taste. Disturbingly strong and a little more alcoholic than the 4.8% suggests. Definitely not your normal Mild, but still enjoyable. Enniskillen (2051) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Caramel, hops, nutty, slightly floral. Nice brown body, thin offwhite head. Delicious, this is a mild that is overhopped (for the style) but it comes out wonderful. Nice caramel tinge that blends well with the hops. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Amber Coloring. No Head. Hoppy Aroma and Flavor...And This Is the Main Presence...but Still Very Subtle and Quite Easy to Enjoy.

This is more like a light APA, but it is good nonetheless. Very nice bitter orange and pine resin aroma with a drier flavor, but not too dry as there is still a bready malt flavor. Poured in a pint glass, the head was kind of lacking and spongy. This really is something you could drink all night long. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2004
This Three Floyds version of a mild is equivalent to most other breweries’ versions of APAs. Aroma has plenty of hops and a subtle carmel malty backing wafting above the bright copper body. The white head leaves a fine lace as it recedes. Starts with a light caramel malty sweetness and good piney hop balance. Finishes semi-dry and crisp with some hoppy bitterness. A very nice beer, but by no means a true mild. Thanks atpayne! Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a small but durable head. Aroma is butterscotch, malt and caramel. Taste is biscuity/malty with a light bitterness. Nicely hopped for a mild, which is just fine for me. Well balanced, crisp and really drinkable. singlelensrefl (24) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2004
In bottle. I had only a single bottle that a friend had brought down from South Bend...I was disappointed when it ended. Don’t remember the particulars, but an extremely good beer. Seems a bit underrated. eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 16, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2006 Pours orange slightly cloudy with a white head. Aroma: sweet, fruit citrus orange/lemon, almost juicy fruit-esque
Flavor: dissapoints compared to aroma. Watery with muted citrus flavors that were mentioned in the aroma. A little bit thin, could use some more body.
