2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Chocolatey malty flavour, bit too carbonated for my liking.
But its drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. A fairly standard sort of mild fruity chocolate flavours and not too sweet and perhaps a touch more hops than is usual. The thin fizz added by pasteurisation really doesnt help - milds really do need to be cask conditioned.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A splendid dark mild - enough hops to lift the potentially overwhelming dry maltiness, a thick, luxurious feel to it and a wonderfully toasty taste. A good one.
