Built on the foundations of a classic Mild Ale recipe this dark beer has a smooth character. A welcoming flow of full bodied flavours is followed by a pleasant rounded finish derived from a delicate balance of malt and hops.

7 Bread and butter pudding aroma, sweet, touch of actual butter in there too.
4 Deep brown, tiny head.
7 Retronasals like the aroma. Rich, slightly treacly taste, with the butter, and not quite as full as the aroma promised.
4 Full bready palate. Finish raisiny and bread pudding. Hops too are a pleasant bonus.
13 Some harshness, but very tasty.

Cask, very dark brown with a thin head. Aromas are coffee and biscuit malts with cocoa powder and smoky notes. Flavours are gritty cocoa malts with roast malts and light berry notes. Peppery and yeasty with a dry finish. A tasty mild.

RichardGretton (4406) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2010
Cask@Melton Beer Festival, 2010. Black beer with a reddish tinge. The aroma is mildly malty, and the flavour is bitter with a roasted malty finish. Overall a reasonable malty, roasted and bitter mild.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Cask at GBBF 2010, 4th Aug 2010. 3.4%. Deep chestnut colour with a big magnolia head. Dark fruits on nose and tongue. Dry finish (almost a bit too dry for my liking in a mild). Decent weight for such a low ABV.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Cask. Strong nose of caramel, hint of molasses, mahogany, red at the sides, pours a tiny toffee head. Flavour is a fine roasted malt, treacle, perhaps a touch of burdock? Light bodied, very well balanced, quite complex for a Mild, bitter, though softly sweet. Wonderfully unique!

Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Really good depth of flavour on this Mild. Crunchy charcoal roast. Smooooth.
