Poured into an imperial nonic a hazed coppery color with a very thin almost nonexistent head,aromas are nutty with light sweet biscuit,a lingering toastiness as well.Flavors are of nutty malt with some caramel/biscuit,the hops as expected are light giving off a light herbal note in the finish.Not bad for what it is,not quite as sweet as a traditional mild wich is fine with me.

Let's just start up front - this was not my kinda thing.
It looks ok in the glass, poured a decent head and the smell was inviting but not complex, not interesting in the least.
The taste started fresh and summery but quickly becomes sweet... way too sweet. Carmel, even maple and the overall thin taste leaves me wanting something more satisfying.
As a fan of Epic, a local in Utah ready for more of their good stuff, this one falls off the list quickly.

The Mid Mountain Mile Ale is just that a mild tasty beer that would be perfect with....everything! The Chicken Man who is eventually moving to the land of Utah provided this morsel. The beer poured a hazy copper with foamy head that is leaving a lace. The scent is very faint almost non-descript. The taste is very well balanced between malt and bittering hops. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a solid beer that is very sessionable.

Can a mild ale be at 5%? Guess will find out how she goes, pouring into a nonic pint glass. Release #6.
A bit dull cloudy appearance, probably unfiltered, with a body color that is a dull murky orange and brown. Head is simple foamy off white, picking up some of the orange body color and about two/three fingers off the pour. Seems to fall at a good clip.
Nice light toasted malt body, but also fairly fruity esters here. Quite nice, kind of simple and good. A faint hint of chocolate sense.
Light palate but doesn't get watery in the feel. Light toasted grain comes through with some hints of citrus orange. Finish has a nice quenching character, and goes down nicely. Carbonation is just about right.
OVerall pretty easy drinking, sort of has an English Pale Ale style to it, but quite tasty I must admit.

I have been trying to decide what category this brew should be in... Not an American Pale (not enough hops) ... sorry it is definitely not a "Mild", too Americanized... and I am even more sorry to say it IS a "Blonde".
Pours with a short lasting white head... foamy and dies quickly... the brew is lightly hazed orangish/yellow.
Nose is grainy .. bready .. biscuit malt .. American hoppiness is no doubt there with albeit a minor citrus zest component and a bit of a floral element.
Flavor has a more hop bitter presence than a Mild... the grains though are the big player... hops are a bit spicy with a lesser lemony essence... with warmth, an odd and out of place honey taste comes into play.
Body is lite.. carbonation is nice... overall, I just am having a hard time digging it. I will buy it again if the price is right (less than $3), but just too average for me to give it much more than a second look.

Poured into a pint glass. Release #17, 4.6% ABV.
2.5 A: Moderately hazed medium orange color. Three fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and no lacing is left.
3.5 S: Lightly bready yeast and malts with a pleasant nuttiness. That's about all.
3.5 T: Same as the nose. Lightly bready and nutty. Yeasty to round things out.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth.
3.5 D: Tasty beer. Not a lot of complexity, but good enough.

Clear copper colored ale with a small white colored head.
Smells of malt and toasted grain with a little raw barley scent as well. Mild English hop scent. Mild leather and tobacco leaf.
Starts out with a hard water flavor and toasted grain taste. Mild hop bite the mineral water flavor is stronger. Toffee and roasted nuts. It is very mild but also pretty tasty anyway.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall a tasty ale. On the mild side for sure but it is enjoyable.

Bomber of Release #10.
Appearance: Hazy copper hue with a pillowy white head that disappears quickly.
Aroma: Sweet bread and malty notes. Caramel and a slight fruityness. Not the sort of fruit you get from hops but more of a yeast fruit smell.
Taste: Interesting palate. While it's light and there's not too much going on, there are a lot of flavors (subdued flavors that is). Though it's light on the hops, there is a little bit of a piney/spicy hop character, but that takes a backseat to the bready malts. There is a bright apricot or similar fruit flavor that blends nicely with the malt. Actually feels lighter than the 5% abv and it seems like there could be more flavor packed into that 5% abv. It's as if someone took a APA or ESB and added a cup of water to it.
Mouthfeel: A little over-carbonated and light bodied. Above average drinkability.
Final Thoughts: I'm not sure where I stand on this one. I wouldn't buy it again, but I would recommend it to someone who is new to craft beer. It's basically an average beer but far from being memorable.

Hazy orange color with no head or lacing. Aroma is light mix of pale malts, a touch of caramel and and very light, citrusy hoppiness, but almost non-existent. Taste is right on with the nose. Bready malts, light caramel, light graininess, but overall smooth and easy to drink. Completely non-offensive in any way. Just a good drinking, pale beer. Medium body, light carbonation. Not bad at all! My first beer from Utah. If this were canned and priced at around $6.99 for a sixer, I would drink it all the time.
