3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle picked up by dad from Geltsdale Brewery, cheers dad. Consumed at home Wednesday 21.08.13 Dark chestnut brown beer, off-white head. In terms of taste it is nutty, a touch watery in fact it has to be said this is very true to the style. It’s fine but hardly exciting, low bitterness, some caramel, difficult to knock it as it does exactly what it should do, mmhhhh.... maybe its a style I’ve left behind. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark copper body with a smallish, short-lived, light-brown head. Quite strong malty aroma with lovely roasted notes, dark caramel, coffee and liquorice, but also some dark fruits and berries in the back. Light sweet taste with a light bitterness in the finish, which is a bit short. The flavours are as roasted and malty as the aroma, but again I get these delicate fruity hints that lifts this brew to a higher level. Rather thin mouthfeel with a dry and smooth texture and soft carbonation. A lovely beer, and I thought I didn’t like milds!
