DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Cask, The Felix, Nuneaton. Thick capped beige on dark ruby. Unusually plum-forward fruity dark beast with burnt wood and souring unripe nectarine aspects. Nose of jammy plum and Flemish red. Cranberry and digestive crumbs. Similar to Redds Cranberry in flavour profile. Odd but good. And clearly not a mild.

Murky beer with pleasing, earthy undertones. Comes in rather tangy at first but mellows over time

undercurrent25 (1954) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Pours a dark colour, taste is of roast malts, I would say this is more like a stout than a mild
