Every family has a few Christmas traditions and this one's ours. By using a blend of pale ale and crystal malt, Styrian Golding hops, and some festive ripe fruit flavours, it's nothing less than Christmas wrapped up in a glass. We all love brewing it, almost as much as we love tasting it.
A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.
Powerful fruitiness, with flavours reminiscent of redcurrants, raspberries and strawberries intermingled with citrus notes. The fruitiness is balanced out by the famous Ruddles bitterness and by a delicate aroma.
Bitter with a faint flowery aroma and a moderately fruity, malty taste. The finish is long but pleasantly bitter with some sweetness and dryness.

The first of the Mild's brewed by Burton Bridge Brewery, following on from the success of the XL Bitter, the brewery was asked for a darker beer Adapting the recipe slightly with the inclusion of caramel to darken the beer and produce a smoother flavour, XL Mild proved an immediate favourite.
Golden bitter. A perfectly balanced, moreish beer. The malty and bitter start leads to a hoppy body with some astringency.
