Greenmount's XXXX Strong Mild Ale

A short one ...

I've mentioned this before on Twitter, but here is a nice advertisement showing Greenmount Brewery in Dublin brewing a XXXX Strong Mild Ale in 1870, and below is a nice facsimile of their Pale Ale label that I found in the Perry's Brewery of Rathdowney files in the local history section of Portlaoise Library.

(I do have more information on the brewery including a write-up and description from 1867, which I'll get around to transcribing at some point!)
