A traditional dark mild, but with a delicate hoppy tone. The addition of just a dash of honey makes this an exceptional & highly acclaimed beer. Named for the skilled craftsman that were, and indeed are, responsible for the highly decorative plasterwork common on many buildings in the North Herts & East Essex area.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2007
A Sim rate (cask at Reading BF): Rancid, rancid, rancid. Tastes like biting into a lemon though bizarrely ruby / black in colour. Aroma is not quite so offensive but reminiscent of lemon cleaner used to clean bathrooms.

DanielBrown (4345) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2006
Gravity at Reading beer festival 2006. Dark brown, froth atop. Nice hoppy Mild, with a slack malt finish. A game of two halves! Unusual for a Mild, in both halves, but the beginning is OK.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Reading BF. A dark brown coloured mild with a reddish hue. The aroma is fruity but slightly eggy. The taste has berry fruits and some smoky roasted malt. Very mild and accceptable.
