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.

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.

Scopey (6915) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (3848) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear bourdeaux red glowing dark brown with small frothy beige head. Fruity aroma has lots of red and dark berries, a decent chocolate background. Taste is initially minimally sweet malty, slightly fruity, slightly dry to bitter hoppy; increasing bitterness in the middle part, with fading hoppiness a decent note of roasted malt shapes the finish, a bit watery, light body. Nevertheless nicely balanced and rich in taste.

luttonm (2223) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAY 27, 2012
.5l cool glass bottle, bought in Zagreb. Incredibly balanced dark ale, perfect to style with robust warm malts and a snapping hop balance. Lots of flavor in such low abv, which is the point. Very tasty. Dry bitter finish, reminded me of all the nice casked pints I had in England earlier this year.

poor. mild seems to be one of my favoured styles, this didn’t enliven my life! way too thin and one dimensional. bits and bobs of aroma and flavour that hinted at the possibility of being a half decent tipple. coffee, chocolate, roasty waitrose. harrogate

Aromas of heavily roasted malt and woodsmoke, caramel and chocolate. In taste this is quite bitter for a mild, and this complements the powerful smokey aromas well. Very good.

Bottle. Pours a ruby brown color with a tiny tan head. The aroma’s light, I detect some tobacco, roasted malts, some bitter chocolate. The taste s slightly peppery, a bit of dark fruits. This is an easy sipper. Some sweet malts, roasted flavor finish. The body’s light, the carbonation soft. Overall, an OK mild. Certainly one that doesn’t play straight down the middle, as far as the style goes...
