Notes/Commercial Description:
This extremely pleasant to drink ale has very minimal hop addition. The delicate Mt. Hood hops give it a smooth body with a bit of nuttiness and a slightly sweet malt at the end. This sessionable ale has some wonderful vanilla and honey notes that are well balanced throughout the drink.

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.

From a 650 to a nonic. Reviewed from notes dated June 18, 2014.

A-The beer pours a brassy, golden color. It is clear with about one and one-half fingers of tan head. The retention is so-so and the head leaves minimal lacing. The beer is still looking in the glass.

S-The aroma is composed of a caramel sweetness, some dusty, musty wet husk flavors, and wet grain. It is simple and approachable, but not impressive.

T-The taste is similar to the smell with light caramel flavor, some raisin-like sweetness, and a wet, musty grain flavor. There is a bit of bread dough in the mid-palate and a vague, almost-hoppy bitterness on the finish.

M-The carbonation is on the smooth side and lasts on the palate. Heft is medium.

O-This brew won't win any awards, but I would not turn one down if I was in the mood for something simple and drinkable. The mouthfeel is probably the highpoint since the smell and taste are somewhat uninspiring. Criticisms aside, there would be nothing wrong with sharing a few pints of this with friends at a bar.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with white head and lots of lacing. Nose starts with some dry malts followed by some biscuity character. Some mild hops round it out at the end. Taste is malt forward with very mild flavors. The base grain come through strong with light notes of sweetness which is cut by dry biscuit notes. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. Overall, this is an easy drinking brew. Not sure how this is a mild though.

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.

Bottle label data: Release #31; 4.9% ABV; SLC #1181

Orange-ish body with a thin yet sticky white head and lacing. Bready and charred grain aroma; a second pour to top off the glass revealed a more fruity character and subdued maltiness. Very light grain flavor with a residual toastiness and smooth, mild hop bitterness. Light bodied; clean, crisp and dry finish.

A respectable mild malt beverage. This probably won't appeal to any IPA hop heads, but, then, this isn't the style. Relatively light in character overall but with a pleasing toasted grain and nut character that proves quite satisfying to the taste buds.

aside from the obvious question of how a mild makes the exponential series, this is a pretty good brew. its not what I expected though, and English mild, this is decidedly American. darker in color too, caramel, medium spectrum, heady and well carbonated. it has more than just light grain, and I appreciate immediately its diversity. there is a touch of smoke, some darker toast, and the delicacy of white wheat, all in great balance. our bottle says 4.5% abv, and it certainly doesn't seem any more than that, very drinkable and soft. not as interesting as some, but the plethora of grains makes it not boring. not sure I could session this long enough to catch a buzz, but I like its richness for the abv, and I like how smooth it finishes, flavorful and everything in good harmony. not a beer that's meant to wow you, epic has plenty of choices for that, but a good hearty mild as they go, and one I wouldn't be opposed to drinking again, especially at about 4 bucks a bomber, very appealing.

Pushing the boundary of milds at 5%, this one doesn't really seem all that English either.

As with most mild ales, this one isn't an in yo face beer. It maintains a doughy biscuitness throughout that is rather muddled. I'm not sure about this beer, it just seems to be missing depth.
No off flavors so it is easy to drink. Probably pair with a simple salad, no dressing. Not really sessionable, so not an all day beer. Would be a bit boring if it were

A: Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger cream colored head. Some good lace down the glass.

S: A light, bready aroma with some caramel, hazelnut, oak and maybe a hint of orange.

T: Smooth and malty with light breadiness, some lemon, a bit of grain, watered down honey and some faint grassy hops. I don't have a ton of experience with this style, but this is pretty good. Light and pretty refreshing without being too boring.
