A Gold medal winner in the international brewing industry awards 2000, and a three times bronze medal winner at the Great British Beer Festival in the Best Mild category, this is a smooth, full flavoured, truly dark mild with a rich creamy head. It has a full body and distinctive roasted malt taste, balanced by its fresh hop character. Complex flavours and aromas are achieved by blending deeply roasted malt and adding a selected blend of English hops.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2008
1/2 pint draught at Dispensary pub, Liverpool. Black color, nice beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and dark fruit. Flavor is roasted malt, dark fruit/raisin, coffee and some bitterness. Mild, but very drinkable.

Borresteijn (7518) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2008
Can @ home. Beautiful black appearance, nice creamy head. Smell is chocolate and roasted malts, so is the taste. Very soft and full in taste. Good stuff!

Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Tashi’s house, 28/05/08. 440ml can to round off the evening. A very straightforward, chocolatey mild. The roasted malt gives it an enjoyable biscuity flavour and it has a wonderfully smooth mouthfeel. A very drinkable modern mild.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2008 440 ml can thanks to Doppelganger. Pours dark black with a awesome thick light-brown head. The aroma is fairly light; roasted malt and light chocolates. The taste is just what is claims to be: a mild ale. Full of roasted malt and caramel, bitter dark chocolate and hops. Awesome. This is not a beer that will blow you away, but it doesn’t claim to be. Easy drinking but tasty, and a awesome mouthfeel. Thanks Casey.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2008 Nice tasting beer. Would go great with apple ’n’ eel pie. Or pair with baked beans on toast. I think I’m having a nervous breakdown.

AndrewC (379) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2008
From a tin. Excellent dark mild. Black with a bubbly white head. Lovely coffee flavours with sweet drying malt and mild bitterness on the finish

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2008
44 cl can. Very dark colour with a little nice head. Aroma of burned malt, light maltness. Flavour of chocolate, malt very tasty for a beer at 3.2 % ABV.

henrikb (1264) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007

Very pleasant, very drinkable beer.

imdownthepub (15395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
Tinned, 440ml, pasteurised from Asda, Leamington Spa. Dark brown with white head, carbonated. Heavy mild, quite thick on the pallate although tricky to get the flavour through the carbonation. Some coffee and sweet malt, but little else. Worth a try though.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2007
(Can 44 cl) Courtesy of Bov. Clear, dark, reddish brown with a small, beige head. roasted, slightly burned aroma. Very light in body, watery and a little flat. Burned malt accents, a whiff of smoke and ashes. Lightly sweet with a subdued bitterness. This for sure is proof that even a light beer can be rich in flavours. 310807
