3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 I’m surprised that Mild ales aren’t more popular. Low alcohol so they can fill some of the same niche as pale lagers but much fuller flavored. I think this does a decent job at that. A pleasantly unusual flavor as well. Serving: Bottle
Light copper color. Taller, somewhat fluffy off-white head. Very malty aroma, in the way of a malthouse, or the smell of the brewery in the crushing and mashing area. Light sweet start with a bit of oak and wild honey joining in. Fairly thin in feel. A light amber with a little twist. 5/10

Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Oak, malty, wood aromas. Mild malty flavor but it is mostly oak in the flavor. Interesting. keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Very nice drinkable beer. Pours a light amber with a thin white head. The aroma has fresh grass and citrus and a little pine. The flavor was the sweet malt up front and then the hops come in. Light and very refreshing. bob_w (373) - new york, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2013
a little fruitiness in the nose, brown malt aroma. Beautiful clear light brown color, no head. Soft roumd brown malt flavor. Bitterness poke in towards the finish. mansquito (6795) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2013
The Diamond, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is like an amber ale with slight oak barrel notes. Taste is much the same. The low alcohol is not evident as this tastes like a much more substantial ale. I don’t know if I would want to session this, but it is good nonetheless.

Bottle. 8/13/13. Pours an amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is bread, yeast, grass, some light funkiness, come citrus, roast malt, oak. Taste is similar; bread, yeast, some farmyard, roast malt, oak, a little watery; finish is lingering bitterness. Some very thin lacing. Medium-light bodied; a little chewy. Medium carbonation. Better than I expected; but not fantastic. Tastes stronger than the 4.2% abv. drfabulous (8476) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Draught at Local 127. Low carbonated pour. Malty caramel taste and body. ESB in flavor with that subtle fruit finish. Ok. Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Golden pour. Oaky and earthy. Light malts. Bitter finish. Very drinkable. Nice surprise. V

Relaly only good when you start getting through the bottle. It starts pretty hoppy but also rubbery, the rubber goes away and turns into slight sweetness, bread, and oak. ccex (1351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2013
12 oz. bottle pours a dark amber color with two-finger white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is of oak, grains, and caramel malts. Quite flavorful for a mild ale. Taste is initially on the sweet side with a short but bitter finish. Body is light but not watery with slight carbonation. A very easily drinkable beer with enough flavor and balance to keep this from being boring.
