Built on the foundations of a classic Mild Ale recipe this dark beer has a smooth character. A welcoming flow of full bodied flavours is followed by a pleasant rounded finish derived from a delicate balance of malt and hops.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Cask at Dog & Gun, Syston. Very dark brown - almost black. Nice sized head. Lacking aroma. Not much taste - mild malts, lightly bitter with a medium/long finish. Not enough happening but a decent session beer.

Cask (GBBF2010)
7 Bread and butter pudding aroma, sweet, touch of actual butter in there too.
4 Deep brown, tiny head.
7 Retronasals like the aroma. Rich, slightly treacly taste, with the butter, and not quite as full as the aroma promised.
4 Full bready palate. Finish raisiny and bread pudding. Hops too are a pleasant bonus.
13 Some harshness, but very tasty.

Cask at GBBF 2010, 4th Aug 2010. 3.4%. Deep chestnut colour with a big magnolia head. Dark fruits on nose and tongue. Dry finish (almost a bit too dry for my liking in a mild). Decent weight for such a low ABV.
