Can @ home. Beautiful black appearance, nice creamy head. Smell is chocolate and roasted malts, so is the taste. Very soft and full in taste. Good stuff!

Tashi’s house, 28/05/08. 440ml can to round off the evening. A very straightforward, chocolatey mild. The roasted malt gives it an enjoyable biscuity flavour and it has a wonderfully smooth mouthfeel. A very drinkable modern mild.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2008 440 ml can thanks to Doppelganger. Pours dark black with a awesome thick light-brown head. The aroma is fairly light; roasted malt and light chocolates. The taste is just what is claims to be: a mild ale. Full of roasted malt and caramel, bitter dark chocolate and hops. Awesome. This is not a beer that will blow you away, but it doesn’t claim to be. Easy drinking but tasty, and a awesome mouthfeel. Thanks Casey.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2008 Nice tasting beer. Would go great with apple ’n’ eel pie. Or pair with baked beans on toast. I think I’m having a nervous breakdown.

Tinned, 440ml, pasteurised from Asda, Leamington Spa. Dark brown with white head, carbonated. Heavy mild, quite thick on the pallate although tricky to get the flavour through the carbonation. Some coffee and sweet malt, but little else. Worth a try though.

(Can 44 cl) Courtesy of Bov. Clear, dark, reddish brown with a small, beige head. roasted, slightly burned aroma. Very light in body, watery and a little flat. Burned malt accents, a whiff of smoke and ashes. Lightly sweet with a subdued bitterness. This for sure is proof that even a light beer can be rich in flavours. 310807
