Cask conditioned handpump Lord Moon Of The Mall London 30/10/12. A near black coloured beer with a ruby hue and a whitish head. A thin mild with a bit of sweetness and a bit of caramel but not much else until a late hit of orangey hop. It’s a fairly ordinary mild.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2013
On cask at congress, longton. Pours dark ruby with light tan head. An smoky, earthy mild with quite a strong citrus kick makes this unusual. It's rather nice though
