3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Beautiful black, scant head. Luscious cocoa and roasted nuts in the aroma. Palate has soft but lively carbonation. Would benefit from the softer mouthfeel a cask would give. The body is light and mild, and the flavors too rich to call it thin. The flavors are lovely, including rich chocolate, and the roast lingers on the tongue. Very nice.

Bottle (real ale), from some rural gas station in Cumbria, probably with some cows nearby. Dark brown body. The aroma has some chocolately fudge and light nuttiness. Slightly creamy character, again nutty and fudgey. A simple mild, but a tasty one.

Cask at troon beer fest 07... Deep fruity malts ; sweet fruity slightly meaty roast malts ... rich fruity malts. Unusualy for a mild i think this could do with more body and a bit higher strength. Its nice but could do with a bit more punch.

Cask, King’s Head, Carlisle. The most consistent of their beers and a fine dark mild. Lovely smooth mouthfeel, with hints of blackberrry. Slightly roast flavour and some caramel. Served through sparkler, so given a nice creamy, off-white head.. Pleasant deep ruby to black appearance.

Bottle shared with ClubGonzo and Veitafan. Have a clear and deep brown colour with a small beige head. The aroma has notes of roasted coffee, nuts and leather. The taste is like a light version of the aroma, and is both good and balanced. Mouth feel is light and smooth and, has a light bitterness. A well balanced and nice mild ale.
