Manns Brown Ale has been brewed in Britain since 1902, originally by Thomas Wells Thorpe who was the head brewer of Manns in London. He envisaged the opportunity to move away from IPA and brown stout and create a new beer, claimed to be "the sweetest beer in London". Brewed to the original Manns recipe, this 2.8% ABV ale is now brewed by Thomas Hardy at Burtonwood, it remains the most widely distributed brand of the original style of sweet, low gravity brown ale.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2005
This is an interesting beer to find in this part of the world - the only other Mild I’ve ever seen is Black Cat. Nice clear brown-deep red colour, OK yellowy head. Aroma of brown sugar, grape and tomato juices and rust. Initially tastes rather sweet but it balances out well enough, with a slight roastiness and a bit of bitterness. More grape juice character, quite thin body. Didn’t really rock my world but I’m glad I got to try it.

Little alcohol. Dark brown, black. It tastes hollow. Little bit sweet, but mostly bitter. Nice on a hot summer night if you’re not into real beer.
