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

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a bubbly white head. The aroma is very light malt. The flavour is light bitter with a dry mineral malt light citrus light medicinal palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Didn’t inspire me. I feel as though the end of the cask was near.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at GBBF ’14. Mid-brown, clear. Looks a bit insipid. Slight chocolate malt, cranberry, cinnamon aroma. Sweet with a bitter fruit shadow, ending bitter with a medium short finish. Disappointingly weak body. Not offensive, and certainly has promise. There just isn’t enough body to justify it.
