A classic example of a beer mild in hops but not in flavour. Sweetness balanced by bitter chocolate malt to produce a rare but much sought after traditional mild.

rauchbier (3607) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2009
Bottle, from Waitrose in Lincoln. Deep red brown, thin but creamy off white head and gentle condition. Pleasant fruity berries and bitter coffee with a hint of sweet toffee in the nose, quite dry and bitter in the mouth with a touch of roasted barley and a little fruitiness, lingering dry bitterness overstays its welcome in the finish

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2009
Thin coarse brownish head. Barely translucent dark red body. Fruity wooden wild berry aroma, a bit faint. Dry-sweet blackberry and earth taste, very harmonic. Soft, smooth mouthfeel. Light body. Dry, almost tart, edgy aftertaste of blackberry and licorice with floral notes. Bitter burnt notes linger. Excellent. Dangerously drinkable, even with this little alcohol. (0.25l cask, The Jerusalem Tavern, London.)

<i>Gravity at Jerusalem Tavern, London</i>
Very dark color, but with red shades, no head. Light aroma, very light apple and aniseed. Mild flavor of chocolate, with good bitterness and a quality hopping hidden by the dark malts; very light aniseed. Pleasant.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2008
Bottle 500ml from Waitrose, Christchurch. Having avoided St Peters for a while, I thought I would give them another go and picked up a selection 4 pack. I now realise that this was a big mistake, as St Peters have yet to brew anything like a decent beer. This one pours deep brown without much of a head. Not a particularly nice aroma, followed by "the St Peters taste". It seems that most of their beers taste pretty much the same and rely on bitterness to compensate for lack of any real taste.

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2008
Cask. At The Jerusalem Tavern. Poured near opaque ruby with a decent tasting foamy off-white head (3+). Slight sour malt aroma (middling roastiness), with treacle and a bit of tart fruit and coffee grounds. The taste is actually quite roasty, more coffee intensity with a hint of sour cherry - but very, very light bodied. Somewhat burnt and dry mouthfeel, nice bitterness in the linger - pretty solid - I’m pretty sure cask really helps this one a lot.

[500ml bottle from the brewery shop] I love St Peter’s Brewery, it’s buildings, its friendly staff, it’s beautiful bottles. It’s just a shame that as of yet I haven’t found a decent beer from them. Still, I reasoned, surely I couldn’t go wrong by trying their take on my favourite style? It pours dark brown (paler than your average mild) with a ridiculously large foaming beige head (no matter how carefully I poured it). Moderate and rather annoying carbonation. Aroma and flavour is all burnt malt, and hence rather bitter in aftertaste. There’s no depth; no other flavours discernable beyond this save maybe a hint of treacle. The mouthfeel is surprisingly refreshing and thirst quenching when cool, but becomes a little sticky as it warms. Overall this is a poor mild, and another disappointing beer from St Peter’s.
