3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Post Office Valults, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a bubbly off white head. The aroma is dry roasted malt. The flavour is light bitter with a dry mineral earthy light sweet malt palate. Light bodied witn soft carbonation. One of the better milds I’ve had. Lots of flavour but a touch lighter than I would have liked.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival on the 3rd October 2014. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin pale buff head. Dusty black malt evident in the malty aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and no lacing. Dark malt complex gives a black toast initially which soon fades to notes of black coffee and dark bitter chocolate. There is a slight hop prickle present in the brief earthy aftertaste. Finish is malty though with strong notes of dry liquorice, black coffee and Bournville chocolate coming through in the palate. A decent session mild.

Cask @ Engineers Arms, Henlow. Dark chocolate brown. Scent of bitter roast espresso, single estate dark chocolate. Sweet taste of cherries and coffee gives way to a more muted finish. A fuller mouthfeel than most mid-strength milds. A simple but well-presented beer. Jimi would be proud.
