COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.

Dark, roasted and jam packed full of flavour. Actually it’s very difficult to describe as the characteristics change so much the longer it is allowed to condition for. At its peak it is so rich you feel like asking if it will lend you a tenner.
Richer than a lottery winner, our take on Brampton Mild is not so much a meal in a glass as a 5-course banquet. Coffee, toffee and caramel tones tease your taste buds and warm your cockles.

Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival '17, Harbury, Warks. Very dark chestnut with cream head. There is a fruity maltiness to this, quite rich with a hint of licorice then plummy and full. Some caramel notes, some toffee. Pretty reasonable.
