Tasted @ monthly 1st Wednesday tasting @ brewpub De Molen. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of spicy malts, some licorice, British yeast and some crispy hops. Flavor is quite bitter, spicy and smooth. Nice and subtle brew, but quite powerful for the low abv.

Hand-pulled cask pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates Shropshire on 19th Dec 2015. Very pleasant Mild with a ruby red hue to it’s darkness, the head a full and lasting creamy head. Malts rule the flavouring and in the nose also, not sweet though, this is a nicely balanced beer with enough going on to be interesting.
