Bear & Ragged StaffExcellent04 Mar 2013 Haven't had a pint designated as a mild for over thirty years, so I was a little apprehensive. This was nutty and earthy and packed with flavour. Good body and a lush head. Will not hesitate in future.

IanExceptional23 Aug 2010 I couldn't believe the quality of this beer. Beautiful condition and lots of dark fruits, choc and coffee and a good drying finish. One of the best milds I've had.

BlairAcceptable27 Jun 2009 Had an odd barnyard aroma to it. Flavour was good though, a fairly straight forward mild, other than the aroma.

IanGood05 Aug 2006 Mahogany colour, no head. Nice mild aroma, toffee and dark rich malts. Slightly sour. Nice mid malts. Inoffensive, but surprisingly good flavour with a bit of choc
