Over the Hill
Real Ale Review Ratings
Commercial description: Over the Hill is a full bodied, single-hop,
malty dark mild, with Hillside Brewery’s Bramling Cross hop complementing a cocoa and roasted malt character.
This is a great dark mild, lots of flavour and quite creamy. This style is growing in popularity again as drinkers love the strong coffee and chocolate flavours and it has a good amount of body to back it.
Over the hill is a great example of a dark mild with a good amount of body and packed full of flavour especially for a 3.5%. Toasted, malty and coffee flavours come through with a nice dark berry aroma.
