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.

50 cL can. Pours pitch black with a lacing and off white to tan head. Aroma is roasted malty with a light breadish note. Breadish malty, light roasted and bitter. Ends dry and malty with a mild bitterness into a dry finish.

Papsoe (25063) - 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

Travlr (24759) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Draft at Churchkey. Nearly black, thick beige head. Aroma of caramel and weak coffee. Taste is caramel and dark roasted malts. Not bad.

fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2005
Black color. Light roasted malt aroma. Medium body, some malt and roasted malt, milky. Strange.

Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 31, 2011
Röstig-laffer Antrunk mit leichter Herbe. Dahinter verbergen sich Noten, die man sonst bei Alkoholfreien erwartet. Getreidig-bitterer Abgang mit wenigen Röstaromen. Nichts für mich. 6/4/5/5/8/4

saxo (18301) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2010
Sample at Copenhagen beerfestival. Medium head with medium duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are roast malt, caramel and hops.

Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2012
Draft @ Zeke’s, Miami Beach. Med brown colour. Low head. Has a thin, metallic aroma w light briwn sugar notes. Light palate with some nutty brown ale stuff, a hint of chicolate and that’s about. One of tge best pints of mild I ever had was a Cain’s in Liverpool. Well, keg in Miami is a long way from cask in Liverpool, in every way you can think of.

bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Can from ericandersnavy! Pours very dark brown/black with a slight tan head. Light chocolate aroma. Near med body. Flavor is light burnt malt with a touch of chocolate. Quite dry. I guessing floral hop, but it’s hard for me to pin down the hop. However, it does develop a decent level of bitter with time.

imdownthepub (14553) - 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.
