COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t be fooled by the word "mild", which attests to the fact that the beer is lightly hopped. Mild ales are less bitter on the palate than fully hopped beers, with malt and barley tones dominating the flavour. Mild ale has a long history as a "restorative beer". Initially English farm labourers drank mild ale as a means of rehydrating and restoring vigour during their breaks. The popularity of mild ales continued when during the Industrial Revolution, factory workers also chose mild ale to quench their thirst. We have continued this fine tradition by bringing you our interpretation with this full strength mild ale containing 4% ABV.

500ml bottle BB 9/12/16 Slight malty aroma but not much else. Nice dark brown color with ok head. Mild bitterness with malty notes and a touch metallic. A bit thin too at the back. Good session beer.

imagineerz (6) - New Plymouth, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 6, 2016 does not count
one of my favourites, especially as a local brew, the awards are well deserved. Great version of a smooth english ale, easily drinkable with most meat dishes. Lovely dark colour and pleasant after taste.

GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 29, 2015
Pours a clear, redish brown with no head. Aromas of chocolate and herbal/spicy hops. A distinct vegetal note as well. Flavours are sweet and of caramels and chocolate. A mild bitterness and cola-like, sweet finish.

Hazy dark red - brown beer, tidy tan head. Crispy dry palate. Nutty malt with some dark character. Very slight smoke. Dry finish. Not bad - a fresh tasting beer!

kiwirevo (11) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 18, 2012
I had no idea what this would be like before opening it and I’m pleasantly surprised. The first thing is the appearance, dark black/red with little head. Then the aroma which I’d pick is chocolate malt. The flavour is good but not hugely complex and it finishes reasonably cleanly and quickly. I could see drinking this all night.

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2012
In bottle at Craigs. Pours a ruby brown colour with a fair light tan head. Aroma of blackcurrant, Weetabix malt, coffee and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation. Just a thin.

3.2
dantheman278 (1365) - SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk. Dark mahogany, no head. Slightly funky nose, big blackcurrant, earthy malt too. Thin palate, blackcurrant, hint of roastiness perhaps, spiced hop finish.
