Having tried various Mild ales from Thwaites, I was rather pleased when this beer appeared in the local supermarket. The beer poured a dark brown with a dark cream coloured head, which faded to a thin film and lasted for about half the drink, not bad for a canned beer.

The nose was lacking, OK this isn't a wee heavy or Trappist ale, but I would have expected more. Faint sweetness, with a fresh scent, but overall I felt it was lacking. The taste really let this down, compaired to their flying shuttle or very nutty black this was a major disapointment. Not horrible; it just lacked taste.

The mouthfeel was perfect for a mild beer: light and refreshing on the tongue, but when the beer has zero taste then this is almost irrelevant. Disapointing.

Champion dark mild, fairly cheap in four packs of cans from Morrisons. Nice peaty colour with significant somewhat brown head. The nose is a rather earthy roasted malt affair. After an initial hint of dairy produce the roasted malt takes over and there is a pleasant hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. The feel is of the many minscule bubbles variety. Nothing special but nothing to complain about here either.

500ml can poured into a standard English pint pot. This ale is branded as 'Champion' Dark Mild having twice been voted Champion Beer of Britain (so it says on the can).

A. A very deep, clear brown beer topped by a 1cm thick, tanned, smooth head.

S. Roasted malt and the slightest trace of raisins.

T. Roasted malt, slight coffee notes and a dryish, nutty finish.

M. Rather thin but given the low ABV is acceptible.

D. I am not a fan of Thwaites beers but this is quite a nice offering from them, especially as it was on offer at 50p a can!
