3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at GBBF 2015. The brewery is pronounced ’beaver’, and the East Midlands bloke in my work would go nuts if you tried to pronounce it any other way. Anyway, it’s dark brown or black with a decent tan head. Aroma is molasses. Body is medium, watery texture, smooth. Taste is watery, soft malts, sweet finish with no real bitterness. Standard mild, one of the most basic at the festival.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Raglan Arms, Rugby - 19/09/12.
Dark chestnut brown with ruby hues and a good tan head. Decent lacing ensues and retains well.
Toffee, nuts and a little dark fruit and background chocolate on the nose.
Taste matches exactly.
Lightish body with minimal carbonation and a really pleasant smooth feel. One of the best milds I’ve encountered.

Cask at GBBF 2012. Very dark black colour with some brown (cola) lurking in the bottom of the glass. A malty aroma and taste, some milk chocolate notes, smooth slightly oily palate, hint of dryness in finish makes it very moreish. Good mild.
