half @ 18th camra battersea. Nice deep oaty nose, and dark red in colour. Tasted almost like porridge, in a good way, but was overly lively and had a very short finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004)
Rich brown, thin head. Toast, and roasted malts in the aroma. In the mouth it’s very malty, but with no real bitterness either from hops or burnt malts. Good for 3.4%.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask, gravity at Cambridge BF ’07. Dark brown. Grainy malt aroma and taste. Unexpectedly bitter. Not outstanding; this somehow just didn’t do the job.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma was malty, chcolate and biscuit having a day, no hops to be found. Taste is similar but very full flavoured for the %, not too roasty also which is a good thing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, a brown colour with no real head. A musty malt aroma with hints of chocolate. A medium mouthfeel, a good malty flavour with a little bit of chocolate, and an interesting bitter character all the way through.

Nice flavour, and creamy foam, I liked it more. BUt it was a little annoying after a while. Although the bitterness is good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gravity dispense Merton Beer Festival 18th Feb. This is a pretty good example of what a typical English mild is all about. Dark brown, nice clean head, whilst a tad on the light and thin side it has a pleasant malty flavour with a slight bitter and dry finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 Gravity at Red Lion, Snargate. Dark ruby with burnt malt with coffee and chocolate blanaced with some hops to give a dry finish. Lots of flavour for such a low alcohol beer and a mild too boot. Excellent
Cask at Catford Beer Festival. Normally one of my favourite milds, this one was a bit thin, tired and acidic. Good burnt malt notes on the nose with bitterness throughout. Quite a short finish
