COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - April & May. Also available bottle conditioned.
Formerly called Festival Mild.
Was first brewed for the 2009 Bristol Beer Festival and made a reappearance at the 2010 Tucker’s Maltings Beer Festival, where it won a gold medal. It’s brewed with exactly the same ingredients as the Mild West, but to a higher original gravity and with a few more Bramling Cross hops thrown in to keep it balanced.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Cask at Battersea Beer Festival, 9th Feb 2011. Deep ruby colour with a bubbly tan head. Nose is quite boozy, also fruity. Strong, intense roasted taste with plum hints and some nutty flavours. Rich, full palate. Very smooth. More of an end of the evening beer than a start of a festival one!

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2011
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2011. Black beer with lasting tan head. Roasted malt and liquorice on aroma. A very tasty roasty mild with some oilyness. Really rather lovely beer. A modern dark mild. Decent enough. Thick and full in mouth. Very tasty

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Battersea Beer Festival on 10 February 2011. Very dark brown. Good roasty character. Quite creamy. Lots of chocolate. Excellent but is it a mild? If it had been badged as a stout I would not have taken issue.

downender (6176) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Victoria, Clifton Lido, Bristol 15/05/10. Near black in colour with a slight tan head, that left a trace of lace down the glass. Aroma of black coffee, dark fruit and a touch of chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts upfront, with a slightly creamy edge, followed by blackcurrant berry fruit and a gentle, slightly sweet finish. Very drinkable.
