so the american mild ale is a new concept. is that basically a more malt driven session beer? logically i would say so, but this isnt that. its hoppy as heck, more of an american pale than anything else, so a little weird to tackle conceptually, although especially easy to drink down. clear in looks, but rather copper or amber or brass colored for a pale mild ale. its not english in any way, and even though they make the distinction, its sort of weird to think about what a mild ale is outside of that context. bright hoppiness, not dissimilar to other beers that these guys make. its bitter and clean too, malty, but light, a bunch of fun contradictions, but at the end of the day, this is average by three floyds standards, and not way off from a light american pale ale with decent balance. cool beer, a slugger from the bottle, but not where some of the others are i dont think in terms of being one of a kind.

So mild ales should honor their namesake but this one is a little bit TOO mild. Overall bright, crisp, effervescent, and quaffable, but there isn't much flavor to be found in this beer. Completely flat characters with both the malt and hops. Brilliant packaging as always though.
