Cask: Regular
A dark mild ale with a slight bitterness but without undue sweetness. A recipe that appeals to both established mild drinkers and also the younger palate.

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in the Castle Rock owned ’Eagle’, in Boston Lincs on 24th May 2014. Like it’s bottled brother it pours a deep, dark reddy brown with a solid tan head. The malty nose is also very similar. Semi-sweet and smooth in texture (compared to the bottled version). Easy drinking and pleasant.

Grumbo (525) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Gravity-fed cask at Barista, Chelmsford. Quite a basic mild, almost black with a tan head. Mild chocolate aroma. Not bad, inoffensive. but afraid there are much better milds about, maybe its aim at the ’younger palate’ making it rather more bland...

kwik-lime (1241) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Roasted malt, some coffee and a hint of fruit. Smooth, easy-drinking and enjoyable mild.
