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.

Cask pour at Jerusalem Tavern, London. Nice rustic-looking pour, a ruddy reddish-brown with a thinnish carbonation. Nose of soft biscuity malts on the nose, a trace of wood, a dollop of hops. Body is nicely full, substantial. A bit more of a bitterness emerges in the taste, but there’s certainly a greater emphasis on nutella-type flavors than anything else. Solid stuff, a winning quaffer.

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.

Bulk_Carrier (2672) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - FEB 20, 2015
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.

Cask at the Jerusalem Tavern, London on 2nd July 2014. Deep ruby with thin dying laceless ring-and-film. Malty aroma with mild delicate spicy notes. Malty liquid with burnt caramel, berries, spices and resins. Finish develops a fine bitter theme. Smooth yet engaging texture. Well-crafted mild.
