Style: English Pale Mild Ale

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.

Grabbed a bomber while in CO. I love a great sessionable mild but and wish this were lower in ABV. This label reads 5.4%. Regardless, there's a lovely chestnut aroma and a bright, clean toasty barley flavor. There are light earthy and doughy notes. I'd call it a great English-influenced amber and recommend it all malt lovers. Damn tasty.

On-tap served in a mug at Brewski, Bangkok.

Hazy copper hue with thick frothy white head, it stands with good retention before slowly collapsing to an everlasting bubble sheet atop along with numerous yet sticky lacing patch and spot all along.

Mild malty aroma that is reminiscent of honey, vanilla, caramel, buttery, nut, cracker, husk, grain, and some toasted bread. Hop is barely can be sensed with subtle leafty character.

Husky grain leads the palate sensation thereafter closely following by some toasted malt and some nuttiness yet lightly sweet and bready in the middle. Hop silently discloses at the almost end with its vague bitterness and mild fruity touch.

The body is medium with good crispness and lively carbonation to yield smoothness throughout the palate. Finish is clean and rather dry.

It is mild and smooth overall to hold the style, very malty, easy to drink and sessionable.

Lots of malt here. Tastes like very good home brew... And that's a good thing.

This one sticks out because it's brewed to style. Very light hopping let's the Marris Otter malt dominate.

Delicious.

At last, I have added an Epic beer to my profile. This baby pours a cloudy copper/light brown color with a creamy beige head; at present, there is some sticky lace on my English nonic pint glass. The nose is quite malty and sweet, with a fresh scent of toasted light caramel malt. It's a light smell that isn't too much to write about. It tastes exactly what the name says: mild. The front end has a delicate balance of sweet and toasted malt; the backend is dominated with a somewhat mild peachy/sweetness, and a bit of toasted bread. A toasty and watery aftertaste lingers. The body is light and smooth, with enough carbonation to quench my thirst. Overall, I'll drink a few of these bombers, no problem. If this is how mild an English mile ale is in England, give me several! It's not the greatest beer, but it's solid and worth drinking.

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.
