COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular
A dark mild ale with a slight bitterness but without undue sweetness. A recipe that appeals to both established mild drinkers and also the younger palate.

theprof (449) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2015
Fruity nose, plum, dark fruits. Dark ruby body, thin tan head. A muted, Smokey texture to the taste with less sweetness than expected. The palate is left soured rather than sharpened. A watery mouthful and not on a par with pales. Cask.

jjsint (2178) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Cask @ the Wellington, Birmingham City Centre. Translucent dark brown, flat. Scent of chocolate, coal fire, malt vinegar. Boring bittersweet taste, leading to a slightly more bitter finish. Surprisingly chewy palette. Very meh.

BlackHaddock (6067) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in the Castle Rock owned ’Eagle’, in Boston Lincs on 24th May 2014. Like it’s bottled brother it pours a deep, dark reddy brown with a solid tan head. The malty nose is also very similar. Semi-sweet and smooth in texture (compared to the bottled version). Easy drinking and pleasant.
