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.

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

Marrone scura, limpida, con riflessi color caramello; schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma caramellato, nocciole, caffè, liquirizia. Al palato sempre caramello, nocciole e caffè, tostato amaro predominante, leggermente acidula. Corpo medio-leggero, poco carbonata.

BOTTLE 50 CL. Dark brown with ruby highlights, small beige head. Strong malty and caramel aroma with slight hints of spicy hops. The body is light, drinkable and almost devoid of carbonation. Dark caramel with enough roast and spicy hops to balance the sweetness and give this simple beer enough complexity. Well done.

bartlebier (2760) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2015
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.

Bottle in the Sweffling White Horse, Suffolk. Mahogany with a thin cream head. Not much aroma. The taste is malty with toast and toffee and treacle. OK.

Bottle at Boban place in Vranovo-Serbia. Tasting. Pours a dark brown clear with a medium ivory foam. Nose: leather, dust, smoked, roasted malts, bacon. Mouth: watery but in a good way, frizzy start, nuts, roasted barley, clean and dry end. Best mild by far. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown reddish color, small beige head. Aroma of caramel, malt, burnt sugar, notes of chocolate and spices. Taste has similar notes plus hops in mildly bitter finish. Thin body and soft carbonation. Quite drinkable.

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.
