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.

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle of 50 cl. Black with a small off white head. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, a bit of smoke and hints of dark fruit in the direction of raisins. Wipe lightly smoky taste of roasted malt. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Lovely and overlooked beer despite the low ABV

500ml bottle from Morrisons. I donít feel entirely comfortable with the concept of St Peterís - the branding approach to making beer doesnít sit well, and Iím as uncomfortable with the slick, glossy approach of St Peterís as I am with the smutty low-life approach of Direct Beers. I like my breweries to project an image of being interested in the beer, and/or to being a part of the community. However, reluctant as I am to like St Peterís, I have to say I do like the beer bottles, and I like their London pub, and - yes, I like their cold-filtered beers. They tend to be well made and flavoursome. This is fairly typical. A well made and very tasty dark beer - good chocolate malts, and a lovely rasp of hops. Good balance. A light and tasty dark beer, much more stout in character than mild, but itís really hard to pin point where a mild finishes and a stout starts, other than in abv.

Clear dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and nutty. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. Not at all thin in spite of the low ABV. 121111

Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Dark ruby red coloured, medium sized off-white head, caramellish coffee nose. Malty, mild dark chocolate and caramel with notes of coffee and hops in pretty strong bitter finish. Surprisingly good and pleasant beer despity relatively small ABV.

Good old Waitrose. I love mild (even though this is actually a modern low density stout and ímildí doesnít mean more that ífreshí anyway but hey, who cares? Not even me and Iím writing this.) Great milky mouth-feel with lovely. Hint of sweetness and quite dry. The hop finish is quite bitter-chocolate and leafy and it lasts for quite a while. Lots of burnt malt and the mildest hint of smoked sausage. Downable stuff.

heavy (2120) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 27, 2011
0.5 l bottle courtesy of Marko, thanks! It poured clear reddish brown body with small head. Sweet and strong malty aroma, sugar, caramel, touch of coffee. On contrary, flavor was more bitterish, coffee driven with only a bit of sweet caramel malt. Thinner in body and very simple, but pleasant. Fine, longer coffee and licorice finish. OK enough, since itís only my first mild canít compare, but Iím not complaining.

Marko (3896) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle, Kuca Piva, Zagreb. Small off white head. Misty cola-dark ruby body. Fine dark bread & coffee nose, dry and sweetish. Taste... Diluted stout. Dry dark chocolate. Bitterish finish. Coffee with chocolate-like bitterness in the finish. This is actually quite good!

Same bottle as pictured. Poured dark brown with little head. Lots of light maltyness with little to no hops. Slight chocolate flavours. Very enjoyable.
