COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big flavor session beer combines dates, plums, and other dark fruits, with toffee, caramel, and toast maltiness. Wood and damp earth tones from the British Ale yeast and UK hops play supporting roles. Overall, reminiscent of toasted whole wheat with dark fruit marmalade. Clean sweet mouth feel ending moderately but firmly bitter and lightly roasted. As this beer warms toffee notes run wild!

A huge old-world style throw-down, with toasted, chocolaty, earthy moldy, herbal/woody, mellow booze stuff you get from English funked out yeast (this ain’t no WLP002, or maybe it is but he’s been using it for generations) and British Pale Malt (guessing Maris Otter). Booyah! I’ll drink it all day.

20 oz cask pour at the brewery. Hogshead never ceases to impress me. I haven't had a lot of truly British milds, but I never like them. I discovered a few American takes on the style that were pretty good, but now thanks to Hogshead I've had a truly great mild ale. This is a dark and creamy beer with perfect head formation. They've completely mastered cask beer. Very sturdy malty body with flavors of wood, leather, soil, and piney/cedary hop notes pop out for balance. It's impressive how full and rich the maltiness is for a beer of this abv. Each sip continues to be bready and meaty. Excellently clean and malty beer.

GTAEgeek (2333) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2016
On cask at the brewery. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a medium, off-white head and great cascading bubbles and thick lacing. The aroma is dominated by dark chocolate, with some licorice, pumpernickel, and rye. Sweet and malty, with just a bit of roasted bitterness that balances nicely. Light to medium body, creamy, velvety, and malty. This is an easy and flavorful mild. Smooth, balanced flavor, and a luxurious mouthfeel.

(En fût à la brasserie): Des céréales collantes et grillées infusées d’un nuage de feuilles de tabac. La sécheresse est grande comme la pugnacité de sa buvabilité.
