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.

Sigmund (5312) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2014
Sample from bottle at hotel room tasting. ABV is 3.7%. Dark brown colour, moderate off-white head. Mild roasty notes in the aroma. Smooth and pleasant flavour, mild roasty notes, hints of mild coffee and chocolate, but not sweet. I could easily drink a few pnts of this one. Will buy again.

500ml bottle from Booths. Pours dark brown, short-lived cream-coloured head. Aromas of liquorice and red fruit. Taste had more of the same. Thin in the finish, but a decent enough mild.
