3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear red-tinged dark brown, medium fluffy tan head with very nice lacing. Aroma is warm toasty malt, fruity hops, caramel, wood, tobacco and coffee in the background. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter. Dry bitterness in the finish along with coffee. Medium body, soft carbonation, watery to oily texture. Surprisingly flavourful for the ABV, very easy to drink.

Clear dark reddish/brown with a white head. Light with bread, nuts, light roasted malt, some wood and light hops. Drinkable but not the best Mild Ale that I have tasted.

Is this a mild? tastes like a weak stout to me. some v slight hops, thin coffee/choc vibe, on but not hugely enjoyable, slightly thin overall feel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very personal impression guided by my dislike of whatever has too much coffee taste. Subtle and Coffee is not heavily present here but not balanced with other tastes and underlined by bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
NERAX North cask festival. 11/16/2013. Color is dark ruby with dark brown in the center. Nose is herbal with caramel and hints of coffee. Flavor is malt dominant and real Earthy. Nuts, caramel, traces of coffee and again the herbal notes are large in the finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Really tremendous job for the low 4 ABV. A session beer with some real flavor. Well made.

Nice and smooth for a dark ale. Nice choclate and coffee flavours that doesnt over power.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours an extremely clear chestnut color with a giant off-white head, and the aroma blends dough yeast with caramel and roasted malts. The taste is quite umami, slightly sweet, and a touch sour, but that sourness grows slightly. The palate combines a soft carbonation, medium body, slick and thin texture, and a malty finish that doesn’t quite match the flavor but isn’t unpleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Mahogany brown body, tall head. Hoppy and caramelly aroma, taste has medium roast and medium hops. Finish has some light roast and notable hop bitterness. My first Mild Ale. But is this what a Mild Ale is supposed to taste like? "Little or no hop flavour or aroma" certainly doesn’t apply to this beer so I will need to find more samples to understand the style.
