Draft at armsby abbey. Taste is dark malts with a slight roastyness and light fruitiness. Hops are what a surprise light and mild. I guess this is a good mild ale? It certainly is mild. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Lightly malty no hops tastes like Malta I used to drink as a kid growing up. I just wanted to get a mild ale rated for the achievement j12601 (13027) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2011
On tap at Rattle N Hum during their Mikkeller single hop series event. Either Andy or Max (probably Andy) must have ordered this one. Pours a deep black with a thin white head. Coffee and roast. Roast, chocolate, toast. Very light and crisp. Long roast, long chocolate, roast and toast on the finish. Excellent stuff. puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Tap at Rattle’n’Hum. An excellent mild in the classic English style. Medium body, caramel and bread flavors with just a touch of sweetness. Slight hop bitterness. Very quaffable. Easily the most authentic mild I’ve had in the States; good on Wandering Star for producing this gem. I hope they make it part of their year-round line-up. blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Draft. Pours deeper brown with a beige head. The aroma has hazelnut sweetness, toast and light coffee roasty notes. The flavor is sweet and nutty with light toasty and roasty notes. Good stuff.

For my 1300th rating, how about something from this cool new little brewery? It is called a mild ale (a category I had not previously been aware of). I am not sure if this is typical of the style, but Mild at Heart was fairly roasty and made me think of a mellow porter or a light stout, with some cheesy tang. On draft at Rattle’n’Hum.

Cask at Get Real New York. Deep brown pour. Intensely chocolatey aroma. A little bit of leather as well. Palate is quite astringent but the flavour has a great mix of toffee, cocoa and pipe tobaco. A little bit of roastiness on the finish as well. Unusual, but quite tasty - at 4.3 it’s definitely good stuff and quite authentic. murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - APR 13, 2011

Draft at Get Real NY Cask Ale Event with Linh, Andrew, Streets, and Brendan. A very solid offering from brewmaster Chris.
