A good example of the style with excellent balance between malt, hops and strength. Works really well in the bottle.

Beautiful 500ml US-style medicine bottle, St. Peters sampler D&M. For a 3,7% ale, very rich with roasted, chocolate and woody malt subtleties paired with spicy berry and orchard hops. Satisfying textured mouthfeel for the abv as well, whilst going down easy like café frappé. Hints of treacle, hinting at savoury flavours, then mostly mild indeed chocolate syrup, noisette. - Did not realise "Mild" was a dark style, but if these are supposed to be sessionable porters like this, I’d be happy to consider an on-site crash course in this underappreciated traditional style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi - transparent bronzed brown color with a rapidly dissipating film of a white head. Barely any lacing stuck around the glass.
The smell had a decent sweet maltiness about it with an underlying cooked chocolate.
The taste was somewhat sweet through the malts with a light malty aftertaste leading to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat pretty light on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation was good but mainly kept it’s distance from how it felt on my mouth, in other words, this was exceptionally smooth.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good mild ale that I would have again preferably with its respected food.
