The mirror image of Rock Bitter, smooth and dark with a biscuity flavour. Back in the pre-war days this beer would have been on sale in virtually every one of the brewery's jug and bottle counters throughout the county and beyond.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2007
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark reddish brown with a small off white head. Yeasty, sweet, floral aroma with a lovely old-fashioned mustiness in the background. Taste is rich with berry fruits: clean,fresh and delightful. A little back of the throat bitterness. This is as good as a mild gets.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at the Pembury Tavern. Hmm, nice balance of crisp dry hops and lovely sweet malt. Blackberry and prunes in the nose. Freakishly tastes of mac and cheese. Honest guv! Quite sweet until the very bitter finish. A decent mild.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2004
Beer #19 at Chelmsford Beer Festival, with Duff. Very dark, opaque colour. Bready malt aroma. Clean, fruity palate. As others have remarked, there are more hops than usual in a mild. Soft finish. A good solid mild. Doesn’t set the world on fire, but comes across very nicely. Cask (gravity dispense).
