COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
This traditional dark mild won the bronze medal at the SIBA Northern region beer competition 2010 as well as being voted the winner in its class at Bradford beer festival 2010. The blend of 5 malts used in the mash give a smooth, mellow easy to drink malt flavour with a hint of liquorices in the finish.

Mjp12 (750) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
A great bottled mild , light smoke on the malt in the aroma, with a fruity flavour. When milds are this good, I wish there were more of them brewed. Great session beer.

MichaelAwesome (5552) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2015
Nett, für ein dunkles Piwo wirklich nett. Schön malzig mit einer milden süßsauren Geschmacksbalance im Vordergrund und einer ebensofeinen Balance im Aroma mit Röstmalzen, etwas Kaffee und einer milden Säure. Alles ok hier.
