(Cask, GBBF 2013): Almost black with a small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee beans. Smooth coffee flavour with roasted malt and caramel hitting afterwards. Not much else to it, little bland.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at GBBF 2012. Very dark beer, thin white foam. Very nice creamy malt aroma with a hint of chocolate. Smooth palate, sweetish malt, hint of carbonation. Excellent. For beer lovers brought up on Michael Jackson’s pocket beer book (the one he did for Sainsburys) this is the epitome of what a mild should be.

I’ll be honest from the get go, I think that this is probably my favourite beer - an epiphany of sorts when I sipped it down. I tried it at the Cotswold Beer Festival in 2008 (I think) and it stole my heart, but I haven’t seen it since. Maybe I should move to Warwickshire... It was evertything that a mild can be, and boy was it good. It starts with really nice, dry roasted, smokey, coffee - giving it a nice dry, slightly bitter edge. All followed up with delicious, malty chocolate.

[3263-20100803] Cask sample. Mild poop and peat aroma with earthy sweet malt notes. Clear, dark brown red body with a quick foamy off-white head. Little roast malt flavour has a lingering toasted bread aftertaste. Medium body. Odd on first impression.
