Traditional Bitter ABV 3.9%. First created in 1983 and subsequently unaltered, Traditional Bitter is brewed using a mix of pale and crystal malts plus Fuggles hops, with Styrian hops added prior to the end of boiling. The result is a beautifully balanced drinking beer, distinctively aromatic and pale in appearance, prompting CAMRA’S Good Beer Guide to offer the promise “everything a good bitter should be”.
Traditional Mild ABV 3.4%. Not a weaker, coloured pale ale like many so-called mild’s these days, but in fact a distinctive smooth-tasting brew in its own right. Old Mill Traditional Mild employs a unique blend of pale, crystal and dark malts to successfully meet the demand in certain areas for a darker, more lightly-hopped drinking beer.
