Bottle, from the brewery, by way of Fin. Thanks! Dark brown, nice off-white cap. Dark toast aroma, varnish and something like beef stock. Briskly roasty flavor, plums and perked coffee. Lingering meaty quality. As much as the discriptors that come to mind seem less than complimentary, I actually rather enjoyed this. Seems more succeesful that most bottled milds, with a good flavor volume, and some funky rustic charm.

Bottle at home as Medow Brown ... Deep dark brown ... very soft malts ... deep soft malts ... a little thin and watter as some milds often are ... little caramel ... bog standard milt if a bit on the thin side for my liking.

500ml bottle (bottle conditioned) from Memorable Cheeses, Ipswich. Labelled as Meadow Brown. Chestnut brown colour. Dark malt, caramel and slight smoky notes. Quite soft, with some residual fruity sweetness. Nothing really stands out but its a decent enough mild.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Plums and raisins are notable in a lightly chocolaty aroma. Dark brown body with low but lasting tan head that recedes to partial cover. Plums and raisins with some pleasant toasted malt character. Light watery body is somewhat astringent and lacking in carbonation. Bottle with chris_o.

Bottle round Chris_O’s house, after a day at GBBF 05. Slinky smooth, brown darkness. Sweetly blended, with some caramel. Some cereal too. I have only good memories of this Mild, and considering I was swigging the dregs, which had been hanging round Chris’ house for 24 English hours, this was not too bad at all. [To my knowledge, backlog is now no more - phew!]
