3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate:
Gravicask. Citric hoppy nose, mainly grapefruit. Nice dust and creamy mellow hoppy flavour. Straight down the line but a typically scrumptious Milton offering.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (gravity) at the Lion Inn beer festival, Basford, Nottingham. On the Deep Black stag crawl. A rather up-front flavoured beer; smoky malts, fruity mouthfeel, a little too unsubtle for me to really love it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #14 at Bedford Beer Festival 2005. A copper coloured beer with the emphasis on nutty malt. Some smoky notes and lots of toffee. Powerful fruity malt flavour, with caramel and some chocolate nuances. Reminded me of Caramac chocolate bar (do they still make that). Well made to the style. I just prefer a touch more bitterness to balance things out.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Bedford BF. A rich brown coloured beer with a malty sweet aroma. There is a little diacetyl and some good toffee together with fruity alcohol. The taste is sweet and quite alcoholically warming. A full mouthfeel and almost medicinal. Very nice.
