Brewed in the same spot with the same Organic ingredients since 1989. Mild Mike set about brewing a most unusual Ale, standing out head and shoulders above the watery, sugar-laden alternatives, way back in the 80s.
Like Mild Mike’s pugilist career, the beer has been quietly notching up medals and trophies over the years.
It pours dark brown with a ruby hue when held to the light. Aromas of coffee, toffee and toast. The finish is silky smooth. The flavour is roasty toasty but not heavy and definitely not bitter.
