Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival on 30 April 2010. Yes, its ruby. Light condition. Soft mouthfeel. Some berry fruity malts but also quite a strong bitter tang. Tasted more like a trad-styled Bitter than a Mild. Solid enough. Quite tasty, in fact.

a little sour to my taste, but an unfamiliar pub and my first try of the beer. colour lighter than I expected, certainly not as rich as I had hoped, similarly with the flavour. We were served at the end of a Sunday Lunchtime opening period ("We don’t open all day, I can’t understand why people do" but otherwise friendly) - I’ll try it again and hope for better

Poured a reddish brown with a frothy off white head. Aroma is very restrained, roast malt with light hops. Medium to watery body, flavour of toasted malt, quite bitter but just too weak a body to impress much.

Cask (CWAF2012)
Rich ruddy copper colour, and nice spongy head. Slight nut papers in teh aroma. They’re in the taste too. Drying palate. Finish is a little too bitter for Anna. Lovely in the mouth though. Taste has some chalky and minerally elements. Ups and downs.

50 cl bottle @ chriso.

Pours cloudy amber color with minimal head. Aroma of honey, berries and floral notes. Flavor of light malts, clove, cardboard. Quite dull and straightforward.

Bottled (from Beers Of Europe). Amber colour, small foamy notes. Aroma is nutty, quite floral and some wooden notes. Flavour is caramel malts, some mild syrup, slight nutty notes as well as some mild floral ntoes. Rather pleasant mild.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2011
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’11. Copper with beige head. Fullish, quite sharp and dry maltiness with quite a bitter finish, flavours not expected in a traditional type of mild. A touch metallic and hard, but overall a decent drinking beer.

shrubber85 (10675) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2011
Bottle. Chocolate toffee malt aroma. Cloudy ruby amber color with minimal head and some yeast flocculation. Slightly sweet toffee malt flavor. Watery palate. Okay but very light.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011
Cask at the George, London. Clear garnet pour, light film. Nutty malts and dried cranberry on the nose. This is like driking trail mix or something. In the flavor are tons of pecans, light almonds, more dried fruit especially cranberry, but not enough sugar, unfortunately. Light in body with fine carbonation. Has a nice finish, faintly sweet with nuts and mild dryness, along with very modest plastic and some dry toast. Alright, interesting.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2011
Cask, King’s Head, Carlisle. Soft and fruity, with a medium sweet caramel taste. A fine red appearance, the head is just off-white. Nice tang of bitterness to finish. Low aroma, good rounded mouthfeel.
