Cask at peterborough beer fest 2009. Alround rating: Roast black malt, fairly sweet with not much balance off the hop, but still drinkable enough.

Cask, That Pub Opposite The Hippodrome, Birmingham. Dusty coffee and cherry aroma. Cherry, marzipan, caramel, bit of mushroom. Strange walnut bitterness for the syle (mild?), some ganja in the aroma. Better after it’s been standing for half an hour. Saw it off in the end. Pretty refreshing I suppose. Not very mild-like, although the pumpclip described it as such.

Cask conditioned at The wellington, Birmingham. Dark brown with cream head. Good rich fruity beer, pretty smooth and full and a touch of tartness. Some blackberry, plummy notes and a roasted malty depth. Quite good.
