Cask in a pub in Bury St Edmunds. Mahogany with a very light rim of white bubbles. The taste is mild blackcurrant and liquorice with some tobacco in the finish and a little metal. Thin. Poor. Maybe something was wrong here given other rating. Will try again if I come across it.

Aroma: some caramel and roasted malts, hints of bread. Appearance: dark clear brown, no head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: average-long dry-ish finish, a bit watery, bitters coming up, but not too intense. Overall: not bad for a Mild, quite a complex palate. Pint at Newman Street Tavern, London.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The exception that proves the rule. Roasty milds have never really been my thing; I usually find them too thin and acerbic. This however was the exception having the roast barley aroma and flavour of a stout combined with the sweetness and body of an old ale. Very drinkable and I can well understand how this won Champion Beer of Britain in 2011.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-pulled pint in The Nags Head, Walthamstow Village on 4th Feb 2014.
Black body with a red hue in a bright light, on top a creamy, beige head.
Roasted/toasted malt nose, with a semi-sweet hint.
The sweetness within the aroma comes alive a little more in the taste giving the beer a mild caramel feel to it’s maltiness. Slight bitterness towards the finish leaving you wanting more.
Good depth of flavours, good depth of body and overall a good Mild.
