Bottled (as Meadow Brown, thanks fonefan!). Very deep brown colour, small brown head. Aroma is nuts, dark dry fruits, some caramel malts as well as some notes of mild spices. Flavour is dark dry fruits, wood, and some slight earthyness. BBE was 2009, but is still in good condition.

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!]

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.
