Malty and Mellow. Soft and slightly sweet with a dry, nutty aftertaste akin to an infusion of ground nuts.
Refreshing, hydrating and comforting.

Dark Mild accounted for 75% of beer produced during the decade following the Second World War and was the mainstay of a generation in the public bar.
Low in abv, soft, slightly sweet with a dry aftertaste akin to an infusion of ground nuts. ‘Liquid bread’ in every sense.
This a low alcohol beer with a light body but plenty of nutty and chocolate flavour. With the Nut Roast there are complementary flavours. In the Shepherd’s Pie the meat has caramelised as it cooked which matches the caramel malt flavours of the beer. Tiramisu with its rich chocolate and coffee flavours find a friend with the roasted character of this dark mild.
