Cask; Regular.
A stronger than expected mild. Very dark, with a full flavour and a slightly bitter aftertaste, this places mild in the forefront of cask-conditioned beers again. It has a fullness, which as its name suggests lets you know it's there. A very frequent medal winner at the Great British Beer Festival.

Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pour’s medium brown with a small tan head. The nose is sweet milk chocolate, some nutty candy bar and blackberry jam. Charred coffee bean roast aromas. The taste is nut bar, red fruits, chocolate-covered trail mix and hazelnut. Light coffee on the finish. A bit thin on the palate, smooth and easy to drink. Overall, not bad stuff.

Not to my taste. That said looks good and I pleasant aroma. Taste a little bitter in an unpleasant way. Won’t try again

Bottle courtesey of Ellen and Malcolm. Thanks! Pours a deep ruby colour with a good tan head. This is quite a light tasting brew with red fruits and surprisingly little in the way of roast malt flavour coming through. there’s something a touch home-brew about it. Perhaps some yeasty aromas. Nice enough and drinkable, but lacks body and depth of flavour.
