Another new Adnams to me. Not so bright in the style, I found it a little too bitter like the rest fo the adnams ones.

(Cask at Kings Head, Earls Court, London) This beer had a lot of dunke like characteristics. There were malts, molasses and some caramell. Bitterness was low and hops were quite mellow. I enjoyed drinking this one.

larsga (6319) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2010
Medium offwhite lasting head. Deep dark brown faintly hazy body. Faint caramelly aroma with earthy notes. Dry-sweet roasty caramelly butterscotch taste with dusty roasted rice notes. Incredibly smooth and mild mouthfeel. Light body. Dry cinnamon and wood aftertaste with caramelly notes. Very, very nice, and incredibly drinkable. (0.5l cask at Trafalgar Tavern, Greenwich, London.)

tdtm82 (695) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2010
A caramel body; fruity texture, good malt texture, however a little boring on the down take. This could do with some more hops. I had this very close to Adnamsí brewery. Iím quite surprised of how boring this tasted which shows how far Iíve grown with RB experiences. This is a bland English mild.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2009
A nice enough light amber ale, slight mushroom & vegetal on the nose & palate, but some maltiness & a little bit of bitter hops on the finish. Some nice dark fruit flavours in the background too. Okay but thereís better beers of this style out there folks.
