3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[cask at Cockney pub in Århus] A brown almost black beer with a small light brown head. The aroma is very faint with hints of the malt, fruit and a bit smokey. The flavor is really good - a lot better than the aroma promises - it is soft and filled with malt and fruit notes. A very nice beer.

(Bottle 50 cl) Deep black, almost no head or carbonation. Although stronger than a typical Mild this is fairly light-bodied. Strongly roasted notes, yet mild and smooth with only a vague bitterness. Nice and very quaffable. 250302
