Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise - London. Pours clear chestnut with a creamy, tan head. The nose holds toffee, brown bread, dry fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor, somewhat metallic, with more bready malts and toffee, along with soft and ripening fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish wtih lightly toasted bread, toffee, some tangy berries. OK.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2013
On cask at old swan ( jdw), uttoxeter. Pours dark ruby with light tan head. It's got potential but the water tasted strange behind the beer. Disappointed as it could have been very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the Vale Brewery Shop, Brill, Buckinghamshire, (Barry purchased this) consumed at Isobel’s (Loz’s mums) 20.05.11 This was better than expected, in fact not too bad at all (not usually a fan of Milestone in bottles) Touch smokey, some coffee, warming, with a little chocolate also. Very tasty. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
