Just a good, old fashioned, (very) dark mild thirst-quencher, of the kind you didn't think they made any longer. Smooth and dark with a big foamy head. Not unlike Bateman's DM, but a little stronger-tasting. Frankly, I think it's a belter. If you like dark mild, you'll love this.

Hand-pulled half-pint in the Old Blenheim, Oxford during a heavy pub crawl on 23rd Nov 13.

Lovely dark body with tanned crown of smooth foam which hung around for a while.

The nose was of over roasted malts and fruit esters, semi-sweet caramel came through too.

The taste was similar to what the aroma promised: malty, semi-sweet and fruity in nature. Nothing to set it apart from all the other well made UK Milds around, but a fine example of the art, even if it lacked individuality.

The body was heavy enough for a 3.8% Mild and almost smooth in texture, made a pleasant change from some of the brews I'd had before and after on my Uber crawl around Oxford..

On cask at the GBBF.

Pours chocolate black with no head. Chocolate, vanilla bean and caramelized sugar nose. Earthy, port barrel, sour currant and kola malts with a roasty bite and some musty, followed by tea, tobacco and bark hops. Strawberry kick to the finish. Thin to medium, chewy, and a mild finish.

Not what I expected from a mild - surprised by some notes I'd associate with Old Ale - but that could say more about me than the beer.

Definitely some interesting flavors and it did go on to win a medal...

At the Marquis of Granby at Granby! ( but an old friend from many other outlets too)
This is everything I want from a mild , a lovely dark rich brew which is satisfying as well as thirst quenching.It's a beautifully balanced brew which illustrates how mild ought to be in the mainstream of beers in this country.
It's true to say than I have enjoyed all Nottingham Brewery's offerings.
