well made, drinkable beer with good malty balance...nice malt and ester notes
This is Orfy's Mild Mannered Ale, a famous recipe around here. Some of us made it without changing the recipe and entered it in the 2011 HBT competition, as a side competition that I called "Milds gone Wild"
This "Magoo Mild" beer finished in 3rd place in the West of the 2011 HBT competition with a 35. It advanced to the second Best of Show round, where I think it also got 3rd place.
The judges' comments-- "Well Made Beer." ."a well made, drinkable beer with good malty balance... some nice malt and ester notes..."
Both judges wanted more malt complexity in the grain bill.
I also would use a different English yeast if I were to make it again.
