From the Notebook - Blackbird Mild
- FREE UK shipping for orders over £75
The Blackbird is a species of woodland and woodland edge, but one that has adapted exceedingly well to the urban environment. It is common throughout most of the UK with summer populations of around 5 million pairs. In the UK Garden Bird Watch 2019 it was the 3rd most reported bird (behind Blue Tit and Woodpigeon). Widely admired for its beautiful song, blackbirds often figure in the lists of many peoples’ favourite birds.
This is our third beer in support of the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO). This rich dark beer matches the blackbird’s plumage and has a soft, velvety texture. So like a blackbird in full song, it flows mellifluously over the palate. We are only too happy for this beer to support the work of the BTO, who have conducted or contributed to many of the formative and noteworthy studies on Blackbird biology.

From the Notebook
Formed in 2012 by 2 guys with a passion for Wildlife and Real Ale, From the Notebook Ltd is all about celebrating the diversity of British wildlife through the lovely drink that is beer! The “from the notebook” brand aims to celebrate the beauty and diversity of nature through the fabulous natural product that is beer! Our “notebook” branding style is derived from a wildlife enthusiast making notebook sketches and annotations out in the field based on their observations.
This approach was inspired by the actual field sketches of Stewart Sexton a Northumbrian wildlife enthusiast, who kindly agreed to provide the lovely label drawings associated with the Seabird, Butterfly and Moth series' of beers. Endeavouring to style the beers in a way that represents the characteristics of the creatures we portray on our labels and pump clips. We call this concept “wildlife-inspired idiosyncratic beer”.
