Bottle. Exploded out of the bottle which had been carefully kept. Not a good start.Some nuttiness and a trace of malt. Overall pretty bland apart from the explosive start!

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask handpull at the Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. That’s not a good beer. Just some plastic on the aroma and vague roast in the mouth. Horrid aroma.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A Mes rate. Cask in the Not Young Knee Beef (Old Joint Stock) thanks Simon for the explanation.
Dark brown with a thin beige head. Bland, mild like aroma. Young and underbrewed. Green and appley. Boring, dull and generally everything a mild should be, but shouldn’t.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, gravity, at Cambridge Beer Festival ’10. Very dark brown with a small beige head. Intense buttery caramel aroma like old fashioned butterscotch. Sweet slightly sickly grainy taste like Weetabix with too much sugar. Dash of full cream milk on top. A little dryness. Interesting beer with an authentic old style feel to it. Wouldn’t want another, but I quite enjoyed it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’10. Brown with no head. A little flat this one. There is a drying chemical note to it, almost salty leading to a malty bitterness. Dry finish, struggling to think of it as a mild.
