Cask at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence. An attractive deep ruby red in colour, almost black, with a thin ring of beige head; aroma of earthy malts with perhaps a touch of smoke; rather thinly bodied, but with lots of grainy, bready, nutty, malts giving a slight sweetness; and a very gentle earthy bitterness to finish. A really good mild.
