Dobre i wystarczająco goryczkowe mild Ale. Po pierwszym przełknięciu słodkie potem robi się gożko, a finisz zdecydowanie palony. Ten słód jest wyraźnie zaznaczony. Mały woltaż i przyjemnie się pije. Doskonałe do ciast, keksów, a najlepszy kompan to piernik. Mała piana to chyba jedyny zarzut

Cask at The Corn Exchange (JDW) in Leicester. Dark with a bubbly head. Has a small sweet berry aroma, little in taste but its mild texture makes it drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a dark ruby with a tan head. Nose of chocolate, a little nutty, some treacle and a hint of licorice. In the mouth, it’s like pontefract cakes with a small blob of nutella on the top. A little coffee there too, but it’s all a bit thin. If this was a little meatier, it’d be wonderful. But the thinness means it doesn’t leave much behind. Nice ABV for quaffing, though.

Traditional dark mild, a classic example of the style, no frills, just good beer.

500ml bottle - a decent pour with a deep black body with a white lacy head. Aroma is feint chocolate, a bit nutty, maybe a bit of black treacle. First taste is thin, nothing too flash, a bit coffee a bit smoky - not that special. The bottle suggests serve chilled, but it loses quite a bit of character in the fridge.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Light coffee and brown sugar. Very weak aroma.
Appearance: Black body with a small tan head that retains fairly well. Nice lacing.
Taste: Light flavours of milk chocolate, smoke and prune with a gentle bitter finish. Tastes weak and diluted. Inoffensive.
Palate: Thin, watery body with a slick, oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.
Overall: Easy drinking, but weak and boring. What little flavour there is becomes more apparent as the beer warms.

[500ml bottle from Wyevale Garden Centre, Twyford] Admittedly bought this to complete my English counties, but was well worth buying anyway! Poured black with a moderate cream head. Slight fizz. Coffee on the nose, but oddly in the initial taste fruit dominates - blackcurrant with maybe some liquorice. There’s chocolatey hints, before a good deep roasty, almost ashy finish. Really good flavours, although maybe a little thin in the mouth. An excellent mild that I would love to try on cask.
