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.

Bottle from Waitrose: I was really impressed with this one. For a 3.7% beer it certainly packs a lot of flavour in there. Lots of roasted malt, a little chocolate and a lovely oily mouthfeel to it. Fantastic example of a well crafted mild.

(2) Not worth trying. Why? It was just not good. It was sour and unbalanced - maybe a bottle gone bad?

Cask in the Jerusalem Tavern with Fletcher. Deep dark brown in colour, white foam. Full tasting, nuts, chocolate, prune. Decent level of bitterness. Goes down very easily. Good mild.

Cask at the Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon. Dark brown with a light tan head. Sweet/sour malty scent. Light and sweet taste, borne forward with sesame, bamboo and chocolate malt flavours. Inconsequential but it’s a mild so I’m ok with that. Certainly enjoyable for what it is.

mt_hall (174) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Bottled. Pours a very dark red-brown, almost black, with a small, light brown head. The typical St Peters aroma of bread and yeast, but with strong malt too (chocolate, molasses, some coffee.) Dry and smooth in the mouth with coffee and a fleeting sweetness in the middle. Good.

SkillsFactory (279) - ITALY - OCT 7, 2015
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 (2820) - 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.
