3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Only Cafe. Pours a dark brown with an orange tinge and average-sized, lasting light tan head. Aroma is roasty with mellow coffee and hints of cocoa. Flavour also has a nice roastiness with definite coffee character and a little chocolate. A nice mild - lots of flavour despite the low ABV.

Tap at C’est What. Ruby-garnet coloured brew with a tight creamy tan head. The nose is great. Mild toasted malt and a little bit of light roast adding some body. Lightly bready malt base and a little bit of spicy hoppiness. Well-balanced and quite authentic. Very sessionable pint.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at bar Volo. A mild stout with a little roast. Substantially overcarbonated which made it difficult to want to drink. Dark bodied. Likely better on cask.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
February 6, 2013. On draught at Bar Hop. Deep brick red pour, clear, with a small beige diminishing head. Smells and tastes like an acceptable classic dark English mild - sort of sweet, a little earthy, soft bitterness and no alcohol; not at all harsh. Light body and carbonation, quick roasty slightly sticky finish, just a whisper of sourness in the aftertaste. Easy drinking, not memorable, won’t get you drunk: a mild.
