Brewed to celebrate Mild Month this dark ruby beer has a knotty juxtaposition. Sweetness from the dark malts preludes the smooth dryness of the hops. "Nautical but Nice".

Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a cloudy dark brown, with a bubbly broken white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium bitter, liqourice, malty, caramel and toffee. A super mild.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Prunes, vanilla and wet stones are met by a sudden earthy hop bitterness in this characterful Mild Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the dark brown with ochre highlights.
-The hop bitterness is quite lengthy, partly due to the dry finish.
-Mouthfeel is a bit limp but never short on flavor.
-Malt flavors could be tighter.

On cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen.

Gravity cask at the Bree Louise, London. Pours clear, light brown with a weak, white bubble head. Dark malt aroma, some fruitcake and mocha. Medium sweet flavor, dark malts, ripe fruits, light toffee, toasty sugars, vanilla frosting. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Sweet, lightly sticky finish, subtle cocoa, dark fruits, vanilla, toast, faint earth and wood. A pretty interesting and ballsy mild.

niquillis (1614) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 On cask at JDW, Stoke. Pours chocolate with beige head. A pretty uninspiring mild, inoffensive but nothing to grab you. Disappointed but pleasant enough. I export more from Titanic. 26/5/15 - Bradley Green (JDW), Biddulph.
