dynamiteninja (1827) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Cask at the Fitzrovia (Taylor Walker), Goodge Street in London. Reddish brown body. Thin off white head. Malty, hops, red fruit, blackcurrant, raspberries, black malt. Bittersweet with some sourness. Dry finish. I wouldn’t really call this a mild, more of a bitter. As others have commented, an unusual beer for Adnams, as this is more malt than hop led.

JorgeLee (1807) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2012
Cask in the Grenadier, a while ago now. Dark brown malty beer, some fruit, I guess unusually malt over hops for an Adnams. Decent enough, though I don’t remember being inspired.

I reckon this is exactly the same ale as Adnam’s Gunhill which coincidently is also 4% ABV.

jackl (7070) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Cask @ The Greyhound, a Taylor Walker pub in Kensington. Is this a rebadge? The pour’s deep brown with a small head. The nose is berry, some spice, rich malts, general fruits. The taste is chewy, thick sweet malts, caramel, light toasted coconut and brown bread. Berry. Rich, smooth palate. Still, not drinking on great form. Overall, OK.
