RichardW (1502) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2012
500ml bottle. Coffee and roasted malt aroma lead into a pretty sublime flavoured beer. Good and full flavoured on the tongue, rounded and slightly warming, with a roasty finish. Pleasing ruby red appearance, this is an excellent bottled mild.
