On tap at Guru Barbaque. Great rendition of the style. Perfect malt amount and great caramel flavor. Even though it's it compliments a shrimp po'boy quite well.

This is my first beer in the style, and I'm curious now to try more. Dark rich malts, a surprising amount of malty flavor a for such a low abv beer. It's very good, very simple, but good.

The key to a Mild is having enough caramely malt to give your beer a slightly sweetness, but not too much where it is cloying of heavy. You need enough hops to bring it into balance, but not so much that it is bitter. The mouthfeel should be light and prickly, but champagne like. It is all about subtle charm and beauty and this one has it in spades. World class.
