An authentic 100% malt brewed mild with a fine aroma of crystal malt and fuggles and challenger hops. Deep red in colour, the flavor is well balanced creating a popular session beer.

BlackHaddock (4867) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
10th April 2015: hand-pulled half-pint in the Sidings, Castletown Isle of Man. Nice looking brew, a red hue to the dark brown body, beige head. Malty and semi-sweet with a slightly more bitter finish: easy drinking Mild with enough flavour to make it worth finding and trying if you get the chance.

tombyars (1461) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2011
Tasted this full bodied mild at the Troon Beer Festival in September 2004. Cask, gravity dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin creamy white head. Good full aroma of chocolate and raisins. Creamy texture to the mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a complex range of flavours with roast coffee, milk chocolate, hobnob biscuits and juicy raisins. Slight hop prickle noted in the short aftertaste. Finish is rich and robust with syrupy dates and warming port notes. A superb mild that tastes like a strong 5% old ale - excellent and worth trying to find.

Cask at GBBF 2010. An amber beer with no head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.

imdownthepub (11292) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2011
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’11. Dark brown with tan head. Dark roasted malts, some coffee hints, a touch watery and quite an odd flowery note, presumably from the hops. Easy on the palate though and drinkable enough.
