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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Cask at GBBF 2010, 3rd Aug 2010. Dark brown with a line of head. Nose has some nasty funk ("Sh*t" - Mabel) and the palate is thin. Slips down easily. Bit of dark chocolate but it is light on flavour in general.
