A Gold medal winner in the international brewing industry awards 2000, and a three times bronze medal winner at the Great British Beer Festival in the Best Mild category, this is a smooth, full flavoured, truly dark mild with a rich creamy head. It has a full body and distinctive roasted malt taste, balanced by its fresh hop character. Complex flavours and aromas are achieved by blending deeply roasted malt and adding a selected blend of English hops.

Oakes (12610) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2012
Draft @ Zeke’s, Miami Beach. Med brown colour. Low head. Has a thin, metallic aroma w light briwn sugar notes. Light palate with some nutty brown ale stuff, a hint of chicolate and that’s about. One of tge best pints of mild I ever had was a Cain’s in Liverpool. Well, keg in Miami is a long way from cask in Liverpool, in every way you can think of.
