Our Black Cherry Mild is stirring emotions amongst those who enjoy a traditional dark mild. Subtle additions of real black cherries and Amarillo hops provide a truly rich and wonderful taste experience.

Leighton (15306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2011
Cask at the Wallington and Croydon BF, London. Pours dark, ruby-brown with a small, off-white head. Rich roasty malt nose and, yes, dark cherries are present. Mild sweet flavor, nice roasted malt quality, good cherry notes, light sweetness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Nice, mild roast finish, lingering chocolate-covered cherries. This beer really delivers on its name. One of the best beers of the festival for me. Well done.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2011
Cask at the Wallington 2011 Beer Festival. It pours opaque black, with a thin bubbly head. The nose is dark cherry, liquorice, dark chocolate and salt. The taste is ripe dark cherry, roasted malt, malt vinegar, caramel and chocolate, with a light roasted malt finish. Medium body, smooth and low carbonation. Nice balance, flavoursome and thankfully not too sweet. Nice.

imdownthepub (11947) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’12. Black with tan head. Rich fruity beer, don’t think I would have picked out Black Cherry myself, but there is a tartness and a sort of roasted pip note along with a deepish malt. Really fairly pleasant and one of the first beers to go at the Festival.

The_Osprey (4179) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2013
From cask at GBBF. Opaque black, big foamy head. Smells impressively of cherry and black forest gateau. The smell is really, really appetising actually. Good stuff. ……. Oh well, the taste doesn’t live up to the smell. Muted cherry, water. Body is very thin. So much promise, but a little disappointing in the end. This beer is scoring above average purely based on the smell.

Cask gravity at the 2014 GBBF. Opaque dark caramel coloured pour with a lasting greyish head. Aroma is burnt wood, campfire, some berry fruit. Flavour is berry, black forest fruits, earthy roast. Nutty malts and hedgerow berry’s linger. Palate is medium light and smooth. Very sessionable.
