I'm not a fan of milds but this was a good one. Roasty and lightly hopped. Had at the Manor Inn near the brewery.

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!]

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 28, 2008
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.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2009
Birthday bottle of Keith’s, as Meadow Brown. Deep ruby with a white rim. Attractive coal, apple and milky coffee aroma. Gentle smoky chocolate, good ashy cocoa linger. Nice.

Bottle. Tried as Meadow Brown. Dark with a malty aroma.Thin body and left no lacing. A reasonable example of this style.

EdKing (1834) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle from Old Chimneys. Labelled ’Meadow Brown’. Pours very very dark brown/red and appears almost opaque black until held to light. Nose is malty, chocolatey. Taste is malty, chocolatey, quite carbonated, bit fo lactic. Finish is roasted malt, almost burnt charcoal there too, and some caramel. Body is very light.

Fin (7349) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle, dropped off very kindly by Marc Bartram, Bartrams Brewey with casks for the Beer Festival Poured dark brown with light beige head, aroma is very light but there are some sweet malts just detectable. This is a simple typical British Mild, but one that’s done well, ok so it doesn’t have the oomph of say a Beijing Black and it isn’t quite up there with my current favourite Welland Valley Mild, but it’s nice and I would happily have a pint or two of this. There is a nice swishy funky fruity sourness creeping through, it is a bit thin maybe but hey it’s a Mild and a rather nice one at that.
