COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A refreshing well balanced dark mild, whose chocolate and fruity flavours compliment its roasted long bitter finish. Primed using a combination of rich dark sugars, this beer is a taste sensation.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
An English beer belonging to the Mild Ale family. I don’t really understand this kind of beer, the flavours are all fairly interesting but with the low ABV it all ends up being quite under performing to my tastebuds.
