3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark, clear brown beer with a thick, beige head. Coffee and malt aroma. Taste is an initial hit of hop followed by the chocolate, coffee and malt but it’s the hop that lingers into the finish.

Another really good Mild. Very soft and sweet. The excellent brown sugar taste is intensified by the oily, sugary body. Just enough hop bitterness at the back to make you want another sip. Rich and rewarding.
