RCH Brewery – Chocolate Mild

RCH Brewery – Chocolate Mild

This Mild ale was on offer from one of our local Breweries at the Burnham-on-Sea Food Festival. It is an excellent dark ale with a chocolate aroma. The taste is a mix of chocolate and vanilla notes and a sweet  malt background, with a hint of hop sharpness. overall a satisfying taste. An excellent ale if you like the milder beers, that were historically common and more popular further north in the UK. It is nice to see a mild ale in the South West. My 5* rating

This is a real black ale in colour with a sweet malt toffee and plum aroma. It has a sweet but smokey toasted taste, with a hint of barley wine notes and a following gentle bitterness. Made using crystal malt and roasted barley, with Fuggles hops.
This is a dark mild ale from the the brewers at Wisbeck, Cambridgeshire on the East Anglian fens, reflecting the peaty black soil of the area. This Mild Ale makes a pleasant alternative to the bitters and lagers on offer, and is well worth looking out.                                                                                         Edited with BlogPad Pro
