Pub Brew. An English Dark Mild Ale with a rich brown color and a tantalizing mocha laced aroma. The finish is pleasantly clean with a slight black-coffee-like bitterness.

12 ounce bottle. Dark brown pour with a foamy beige head with clinging lace. Rich roasted malt nose has a hint of coffee and dark baked bread. Light in body but rich in flavor. Notes of cocoa and earthy roasted malt. Nutty malt finish. Very little hop prescence. Very enjoyable. You don’t see many English style dark milds being made these days. I really enjoyed this.

AWISLguy (2270) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle from mikem409, thanks Mike! Pours a root beer color with a rapidly disappearing head. Virtually no lace. Aroma has chocolatey and caramel malts. Further down in the glass, bits of brown sugar and some earthiness show through. Taste is of sweet caramel, light brown sugar, some molasses and fruit, and something vegetal. Medium bodied with no alcohol presence. Finishes sweet and lightly vegetal, just without much depth. More than was expected; the taste needed to live up to the aroma to be better. 13.1

SpongeRuiner (1089) - Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
This one pours a mildly dark brown color with a strong bubbly head. Has a strange hop caramel aroma. It has a watery taste overall with a slight carbonation. A dirty wheat note. Very thin feel. Not much flavor at all. A deep dark malt flavor. A mild pepper spice back feel. A very light drink. Not one of my favorites of the night.
