Dark, roasted and jam packed full of flavour. Actually it’s very difficult to describe as the characteristics change so much the longer it is allowed to condition for. At its peak it is so rich you feel like asking if it will lend you a tenner.
Richer than a lottery winner, our take on Brampton Mild is not so much a meal in a glass as a 5-course banquet. Coffee, toffee and caramel tones tease your taste buds and warm your cockles.
Mild of the Festival at Chesterfield BF 2008 and selected for the GBBF the same year. SIBA Midlands Region Gold Medal Winner 2012.
We always wanted to include a mild in our standard range of beers, but were extremely cautious over calling it Brampton Mild. Anyone from the locality will have heard rumours and heresay about the original and legendary Brampton Mild, so we thought the safest option would be to ‘retire’ the name as a mark of respect to the original. However Chesterfield CAMRA then intervened, and asked us to re-launch Brampton Mild as our Festival Special for the Chesterfield BF in February, 2008, and we’ve never looked back. It was the talk of the festival, scooped more votes than any other beer over the weekend and took the Mild of the Festival award. We now tend to rotate between brewing Impy and Mild, so it’s doubtful we’ll have them both on at once, but equally doubtful we’ll never have a mild available. Show Less
