Cask at the Pembury Tavern - London. Pours clear chestnut-brown with a frothy light khaki head. The aroma golds toasty bread, a bit of toffee, grains. Light-medium sweet flavor with nicely rounded toffee notes, suggestions pf butterscotch and creamy caramel, nice brown bread, mellow dried fruits, berries. Light bodied with fine carbonation; excellent condition. Nicely balanced with further dried berries, touches of leather, more toffee and brown bread. Well rounded with good depth for the ABV. Outstanding mild.

imdownthepub (10661) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Chestnut with white head. Rich, malty, fruity mild, dark chocolate notes with a fireside, coal dust hint. A plummy fruitiness emerges. Probably a little too much going on for a mild but very pleasant in it’s own right.
