2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can shared by Theydon Bois at the RBWG Fart Dungeon - thanks again, Colin! Pours a clear dark orange tea color with no head. Kind of sugary and earthy, with leaves and wet toast. But mostly just dull and watered down. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, toasty, sugary, watery mouthfeel. Snooze.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can share at Leighton’s. As ’Banks’s Mild’, 3.5% BB Oct 2016. Dark reddy brown, still, clear, small foamy tan head. Aroma is bready, some plum. Body is rounded, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is soft biscuity malt, watery, bread, dry finish with no real bitterness. Inoffensive, watery. Interesting to try this ’classic’, but I won’t return to it in a hurry.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can shared in London - big thanks to Daniel. Pours totally clear copper with a slight, foamy head. Bland aroma, light paper, faint bread, hints of berries. Light sweet flavor with lightly toasted bread, faint caramel, earth, berries. Light bodied with average carbonation. Moderate sweetness in the finish, some leaves, dried bread, dried berries. Mediocre, but drinkable.
