2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.
