2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask, GBBF 2010. Achingly average mild; thin mouthfeel, washy old roasts and fleet of hop. Makes me wonder why CAMRA persevere is promoting this style, which has now become whatever the brewer feels like brewing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had this cask, gravity at Bromyard Folk Festival, Friday 12th September 2014 . Pours chocolatey brown in colour, with white off-white rim head. Malty, caramel, nutty, rather tedious mild that I’ve had many times before especially when I lived in Worcester, but one that I never got round to rating. Chewy, uninspiring beer. This was the beer that sees me finally overall Glen in my bid to claim the county of Worcestershire. A5 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.8
