COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

50 cL bottle. Pours dark golden brown with a small off-white head. Slight butterish and roasted malt aroma. Light spiced too. Mild roasted malt flavour with a hint of liqourice and dark breadish notes, subdued dried fruit note too. Mild finish with a light roasted malt base and a nice level of bitterness to provide a good counterbalance.
