COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular; Bottle: Cold filtered.
Has been brewed at various strengths between 3.6% and 4.7%
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.

EithCubes (5156) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle, green medicine glass by 13SEPT12. Nose is somewhat fruity but extremely medicinal, toffee and caramel with some light roast and astringency, chocolate sticky foretellings. Deep dark blood red body with a blink-and-you-miss-it head. Taste is very dry, just no sweetness here at all, with light roast astringency and a hint of sourness, light bitter chocolate and a hint of wood. Rooty, woodsy. Medium body. This definitely traditional, and reminds me a lot of a light stout. Pleasant and repeatable.

Theydon_Bois (11131) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle at home - 19/08/12. Clear mid brown with reddish hues when held to the light and a thin bubbly tan head. Grainy malts on the nose allied to toffee and biscuit. Caramel/biscuit malts in the taste, a little bread, toffee, nuts a good dose of chocolate on the finish and in the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied but too much carbonation for my liking. Decent enought mild - the over carbonation brings it down a good 2 notches for me!

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2012
OMG. This stuff is absolutely rancid. on tap at a pub in Selly Oak. Honestly, 1 sip and I was disgusted at how terrible it could be. Tasted of vinegar. Awful, truly awful. You have to buy this to experience the awfulness of it. OMG I want to vom thinking about it. If I didn’t have a rule of 5 for appearance it would get 0.5.

Grzesiek79 (3374) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 29, 2012
Bardzo dobre i wytrawne w smaku piwo typu mild Ale. Ciemna barwa, średnia ale utrzymująca się piana na powierzchni podczas picia. W smaku wyrażnie zaznacza się wytrawna chmielowa goryczku, która pozostaje dłógo po przełknięciu na podniebieniu. Wyrażnie czuć palony słód.

thepeter (296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Poured a murky dark brown that showed ruby highlights when held to the light. A nice moderately dense head that lasted quite a while. S- Roasted nuts, cocoa, toffee and roasted grains T -Dry Cocoa nibs, bitter coffee, tobacco, and roasted grains M -Med bodied, smooth, soft on the tongue well carbonated with small bubbles. Very clean dry aftertaste Overall, a good beer, better on cask. Went very well with my Thai green curry

Scopey (8068) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2012
Cask at a Nicholson’s pub. It pours deep ruby, with a thin off-white head. The nose is dark fruit, leather, leaf, damp wood and a hint of chocolate. The taste is wood, leather, vinous aspect, leaf, dark fruit and some chocolate, with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Tastes like a cross between a mild and an old ale. Not bad.
