3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Feb 2008, drank April 2007.
Very surprised to see this in bottle form, and in London, so I bought two bottles.
Poured into a pint ’ Old Speckled Hen’ vase type glass.
The beer looked fantastic, deep ruby black with a fine biege head of foam.
The aroma is of roasted and toasted malts, they overpower anything and everything else that may be trying to get into the air.
The taste is fine, again the burnt malt flavours take over. This isn’t delicate, this is a proud dark mild.
Sadly the mouthfel lets it down somewhat, not watery, but not as lasting or powerful as you would expect from the initial taste.
Glad I found it in bottle form, I must have a cask one again soon. One of the best dark milds around in the UK.

Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, red-brown with a medium, creamy tan head. Some lightly toasted cocoa in the aroma. Light sweet flavor, some sweet, dark bread, faint roast and cocoa. Light bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Lightly dry to finish, some mild ash and tobacco, light roast and cocoa, hints of burnt sugar. It’s alright.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown pour with red sparkles of light. Small tan head that slowly fades leaving behind it a small amount of lacing. Dates, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, coffee and malt aromas. A bit more roasty in the mouth than I would have thought, but good. A milky smooth mouthfeel. An acrid bitterness that is like putting coins in the mouth, but not overly so. Decent drinker.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A good example of a true english mild. Excelent rosted malt flavour coming true in a smooth slightly sweet way. Careful hopping adds a little fruity edge.

[330ml bottle] Deep reddish brown with a thin head from the bottle. Roasty, with a touch of caramel malt on the aroma. The palate is reasonably rich for a mild – good toasty bitterness and a dark molasses aftertaste – some coffee in there. It’s almost like a shandy version of Theakston’s Old Peculier. Really rather good
