Delightfully old-fashioned dark mild ale with caramelly and bit smoky aroma, soft rounded taste with some diacetyl, fruity, lightly hop bitter finish. More bitter than usual for this style and quite enjoyable, though unambitious as can be expected from a mild.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at The Ragleith Arms, Little Stretton. Pint accompanying a meal with my future Belgian father-in-law. He quite liked it. I found it fairly malty, with a smooth texture but altogether rather boring. Although I was trying to impress him with English beers on this trip, and this I felt didnít cut the mustard. Another day, another pub I may take a shine to this beer.

Dark brown color. Very nutty chocolatey nose. Smooth mouth that is graced by pecans, coffee and chocolate. Very malty and light but at every step shows great depth. Subtle lingering pecan pie finish. Excellent. ,

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Poured a reddish Chesnut brown with a broken tan head. The aroma is weak but with malty notes. The flavour brings back memories. This is like the mild my father used to drink! Itís nutty, malty, mildly bitter with a smooth palate. The perfect session ale and very satisfying too. I feel guilty about giving it a relatively low rating and Iím wondering why I have, because I really enjoyed it. However, it lacks the flavours of a good IPA or a big Imperial Stout.
