Had this from cask at McGrath's in Harrisburg PA. Found this to be an excellent example of an english mild/bitter. Pours with little head , which quickly disappears ,and nice coppery/amber color. Tastes bready , malty, lightly toasted. Very nice slight bitter finish. Pleasant Malt aroma.

Comes out of the tap a beautiful, nearly opaque honey-golden - not much head, but that must be how it’s poured. Malty aroma has subtle fruity and horehound notes. Flavor has good malty and fruity tones and a bitter undertone - subtle, and as the description says, no bite. Finish is dry and smooth, not a lot of tingle but good body, and the fizz last. This is a beer to be sipped and savored.

I love malty beers. I especially love bitters and milds. For me this is the benchmark of the style.

Complex bready and just slightly toasty malt aroma. Hop presence varies based on freshness, but there is always enough backbone to support the malt. Mouthfeel is among the best I've ever experienced. It shows what a beer engine can do for the right beer.

I've always wanted Victory to brew an Old Ale with this grain bill and give it a little brett. Top Notch.

....kinda thinking about driving to Downingtown today.....
