Dark Mild

(Available all year)

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. Soft, slightly sweet with a dry aftertaste akin to an infusion of ground nuts. It is refreshing, hydrating and comforting. ‘Liquid bread’ in every sense.

Cask Ale is also known as cask-conditioned beer or real ale. It’s not pasteurised and is very much alive; the brewer’s yeast is still active – conditioning the beer from a fining bed (or lees) at the bottom of the cask.

This conditioning takes the form of natural carbonation which has a much more subtle stimulation of the taste sensors than artificially added gases used to dispense keg beers from pressurised containers.

Harvey’s Brewery also produce a range of Seasonal Draught Brews – each available for roughly a month. Trade customers should note that due to popular demand, pre-orders are advisable on all Seasonal Draught Brews and to purchase the Armada Ale, IPA, Sussex Mild or Olympia to contact our Lewes shop.
