Pasteurised bottle. Also available on keg as Old Smoothie Mild.
NOTE: Ratings for the cask version should not be posted here; it has a separate listing.
A traditional dark mild at 3.6% abv. The beer is well balanced with a full roast flavour. The use of Crystal malt and Roast Barley give a deep underlying characteristic flavour, which is balanced with Fuggles hops as the sole variety.

Bottle. The aroma is very malty, sticky and sweet. The head is small, very creamy and dark white to beige with a rather short duration. The body is nearly black. The taste is light bitter and dry in the mouh, reminds me a little bit of licorice. The finish is long, mild and light bitter. The body is light to medium strong and dry-creamy without much carbonation.

wheresthepath (1445) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2009
[Bottle, gift from my wife - thanks!] Black with ruby hints and a large beige head. Moderate carbonation, a little too much for the style. Dry, vinous aroma. Initial taste smokey, followed by sweet wine/port. Develops into slight sourness before a quite dry and slightly bitter finish. Good mild this.

Bottle [Courtesy of Paul, thanks buddy for bring this excellent stuff] Average beige bubbly head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Light brown like color. Aroma of roasted malt, fruity notes and light wood or smoke like notes as well. Over the palate I picked up chocolate as well. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor. Light chocolate like finish.
