Ale #2 Rudgate Ruby Mild

Apperance: Dark, Ruby

Flavour: Smooth, combination of bitter, hops and sweetness

Aroma: Sweet with hints of smoke

Why its on here: Ruby Mild was crowned to be last years Champion Beer of Britain at the Great British Beer Festival. This is quite impressive considering it is a mild, which have been falling out of favour the past few years. The beer is delicious and complex. It drinks smooth and is quite hoppy and bitter for a mild but these work very well together. Well worth a pint

  1. I love milds and they are really hard to come across. PIN in Leeds have been doing this as an alternative whilst Midnight Bell is off, and I have really enjoyed it. Timmy Taylors do a nice mild too. Also hard to locate.
