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.

Idiosynkrasie (4472) - 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 (2869) - Seattle, Washington, USA - 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.

superflyguy (429) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2012
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.

jackl (5343) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2012
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...

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Reviewed from notes (2008). Jerusalem Tavern in London... A: Rich red-brown body with a sizable tax head... S: Chocolate and malts.. some other fruit like aromas come through T: Lovely chocolate/malt blend that is rich yet smooth M: Velvety. Nice from the cask. O: Can put a few of these back before getting bored.

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

Bottle brought back from UK. very flavofull so alcohol and taste are not the same. brown and clear with lots of chocolate and caramel.
