On tap at the brew pub.

A super dark amber with lots of brown sitting in the middle, very light head, poor retention and lacing...A super light aroma giving off light aroma and roasted malts, nice what you can get of it...The taste is all toffee from start to finish, but again pretty light like an english mild should be. There is a pretty nice roasted coffee finish.

This is not really my style but I can appreciate what's going on here and think its a very good attempt. (476 characters)

Had with dinner at the Station last night and now in a pint from a growler. Deep mahogany color with thin a thin fine splotchy head. Slow rising faint carbonation. Smell is a yeasty roasted nuttiness. Taste is a interesting blend of apple from the yeast and a burnt nuttiness. Nothing really more pronounced than the other. Mouthfeel gets a little too sweet. I enjoyed this beer and its definitely drinkable at 4.5%. Glad I got the growler. (440 characters)

On tap yesterday at the station, review is from notes.

Served in a nonic pint. Glowing dark reddish brown, high clarity. Tight, compact head, a thick ring settles and leaves some random spotty lacing. Really nice color to this Mild.

Mellow and nutty, somewhat malty with mild apple traces.

Light astringency, rounded bitterness that segues into a toasted malt middle and finish. A subdued apple note from the yeast, and mellow feel overall. Lighter, cask-like natural carbonation. Simple and easy drinking. It covers the style nicely. Every brewpub should have a Mild on like this. (587 characters)

Appearance -- Pours a very dark, transparent brown. Thin, sudsy eggshell head that soon dissipated.

Smell -- Nutty dark roast malt, faint molasses, and earthy hops. Overall not very aromatic, really had to dig the nose into the glass.

Taste -- Very nutty with ample dark roast flavor. There was a pronounced floral sweetness; the taste was so familiar, but for the life of me I couldn't place it. Also, some very faint molasses sweetness. Finish is surprisingly hoppy; very earthy and resinous. Lingering flavors of nutty roast malt and resin.

Mouthfeel -- Light in body with mild prickly carbonation.

Drinkability -- I wouldn't call it thrilling, but still quite enjoyable and very enganging. I found myself trying to place this floral sweet note from first sip to last. I would definitely order this again. Great session beer! (840 characters)
