Ruby Mild
We have named this black country mild after legendary Cerne Abbas blacksmith Tiger Tom Curtis, described by many as a Gurt square hairy man. A deep ruby mild, delicately hopped with bramling cross to give a subtle blackcurrantness to this light drinking dark mild. Cheers Tom!

SilkTork (6397) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2019
UPDATED: APR 13, 2019 April 2019. 500ml dark bottle from a farm shop on the way to Torquay. Ah, sigh. This is proper beer. This is my sort of beer. It takes me back to when I first started hunting beers, and most of my purchases were from British breweries who made traditional beers like this. Before the American homebrewing BJCP style guides and the American Brewers Association 'craft beer' marketing campaign influenced and took over so much of British brewing, I enjoyed British beer so much more. I found a greater range of interesting beers. Now I find many of the newer breweries are issuing cookie cutter pale hoppy beers with the occasional bit of wild/sour and strong dark beers - either barrel aged or hopped up. Lots of tropical fruit, and not much character. Pah! But here I find a decent ruby mild. Easy drinking and quite tasty. Body is a little thin so it leans more toward a dark lager than a dark ale (possibly brewed a little too cold and for a little too long for my taste), but it's still a satisfying drop.

johndoughty (6122) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2016
Bottle. ( Swing Top ) Gentle malty flavour with a small head. Pleasant but a bit lacking in body.Nice to this style bottled which doesn’t happen that often. With a bit more bite this would have been an above average beer rather than just a reasonable one.
