3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at Stratford upon Avon Beer Fest ’07. Dark brown with little head. Darkly malted mild but without the fruitiness of a Midlands mild. Earthy dry flavours with a touch of greenness, lack of conditioning. It drops off quite quickly, its ok without reaching any heights.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Brunswick Derby. A black mild with a nice wispy white head. The aroma has lots of roasted malts and some coffee notes, whereas the taste has more of the same in a nicely balanced way. A very tasty mild at a good low ABV.

A Sim rate (cask at Chelmsford BF): Great for a mild. Smells like wine or a very spicy dressing. Grapes, cherries. Bit of chocolate and caramel. Nice and tangy. Nice creamy aftertaste.

Cask (handpump) Brunswick Inn. Avoids the dishwater trap of too many middling milds today, manages to mine a slim vein of subtle roasts and tangential bitterness. For a ’house mild’ it’s a good drop.
