Production contracted to Marstons in about 2009.
Rich and dark with more than a hint of roasted malts and caramel flavours. A wonderful balance of hop bitterness and aroma, all captured in the one glass.

tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2012
First sampled this mild in Sedburgh, July 1991. Cask, handpump dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin white creamy head. Slight roasted malt in the aroma with a decent creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Slight nutty texture with a hint of plain chocolate and dry dusty black malt. Slight prickle of hop resins noted in the not too dry bitter aftertaste. Nutty flavour noted in the dry malty finish. A decent session mild.

(Cask at Wenlock Arms, London, 16 Apr 2009) Dark brown colour with brief, off-white head. Malty, roasted nose with dark fruit and caramel. Malty, taste with notes of dark fruit, wort bread and caramel. Not very exciting, but a decent and well made mild.

imdownthepub (10172) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Cheshire Lines, Southport. Dark brown with white head. If you want to taste how good this can be try it at this pub, top notch condition. Good full flavours, ok there is caramel, but this is a good old fashioned mild and a joy. Get to try it in a pub that loves it, you won’t regret it.
