A 3.5% dark ruby beer with roasted notes and a smooth, creamy taste. A favourite of lovers of a good mild.
Especially popular in East Lancashire and loved as a guest further afield. One of the finest dark Yorkshire milds still in independent production.

The taming of the kilderkin.
It may not appear hostile. But the Taylor’s cask is well known amongst landlords for its tendency to erupt and drench the unsuspecting if not handled correctly. We still brew our beer the traditional way, which means it undergoes a vigorous secondary fermentation in the cask. This extra conditioning results in a cleaner and crisper beer. But it also means that our casks demand extra time and care. So when you see Landlord in a pub, you know you’re in the presence of a landlord who has tamed the beast to bring you that Taylor’s Taste. Please thank them for their endeavours.
