Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Dark amber with a thick white head. Couldn’t pick up an aroma. Faint malty taste overlaid by hops. Oily, creamy mouthfeel, probably thanks to the head, which was courtesy of Mr Wetherspoon. Slight bitter finish. Something lacking here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear, copper pour, with a beige head. Malt, toffee, some chocolate, nuttyness and a biscuity touch in the aroma. The flavor is roasted, with some toffee, a wee note of chocolate, some nuttyness and a some biscuit-like flavors. Medium body. Dry, lightly hoppy finish with malt dominating. A nice one, it lead my thoughts to a nice mild. (070704)
