3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Gravity cask at Chiltern brewery shop] Chestnut brown with a medium, frothy beige head. Glorious rich malty aroma made me desperate to get this one down my throat. Flavour isnít quite as strong as aroma would suggest, but nevertheless itís full of rich earthy roasted malt, plenty of nutty flavours (as the name suggests!) and a hint of chocolate. Good balance of creamy sweetness and dry bitterness in the finish. Good mild, this one.

A Mes rate:
Gravicask at Reading Festival. This was the winner of the best local mild for 2007. Personally I found it bland and watery even for a mild. Very pale colour for a mild. Too much tea and no character.
