A traditional dark Mild, with hints of chocolate and caramel with the slight hoppy finish of the Mild style but with a twist from the New Zealand grown Pacific Jade and Pacifica hops.

Cask at Pig’s Ear Beer Festival, London. Near black. Coffee aroma. Mid sweet with light body, soft mouthfeel. Gentle coffee and caramel. Growing bitter finish. Nicely drinkable and very moreish!

Gravity cask at Pig’s Ear 2011, London. Pours dark brown with a large, bubbly, off-white foam head. Aroma holds some dry, dusty roast. Flavor is lightly sweet with an interesting bread character. Perhaps rye or some other grains. Faint roast, some dark sugars. Light bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish, dark malts, whole grain bread, toasted malts. Very enjoyable and interesting mild.

Fin (11047) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks, 04.10.10 Pours black with a creamy off-white head. The taste is less hoppy than I expected but it does indeed finish a little hoppy and bitter. In truth it’s a fairly standard but likeable Mild, some dark fruits and chocolate & burnt malts. It’s a bit thin on the palate, served a touch on the warm side. Its ok. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1
