Just getting into English Milds, but I liked this one.

The fuggles are there, but not overpowering. Good malt.

Solid beer. Will try to brew something similar.

Dark copper color with a beige head with medium retention and leaving good laces.
Nice aroma of English and yeast hops with notes of tea leaves, caramel malts and tangy citrusy.
Fruity flavor with notes of spices, roasted and caramel malts, mild dark chocolate, Brazilian guaraná, slightly lemon tartness, tea leaves, British earthy hops, sugarcane juice, minerals, lots of nuts and dark fruits. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Love this beer with full of English tangy fruity notes, very balanced with a unique complexity.

Excellent beer. Unique and full of character. Better on tap or bottled to the canned version.
