2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask (handpump) at GBBF, August 2006. Dark, mahogany brown colour. Thick head. Not impressed with the condition. I can only describe the aroma as bad - raw malt aplenty and loads of diacetyl. Better on the palate but the overall impression was very dull. I’m sure it can be better than this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some citrus hops on the hos, with a touch of biscuity malts, unusual for a mild indeed. Taste is chocolate malts, barley, reasonably full bodied for the %, really well balanced and really drinkable. Really fine carbponated , like it seemed as if i hadnt vented it for long enough, but 3 1/2 days should not have it like this, unless the fine carbonation is supposed to be part of the beer.

Half pint pulled at GBBF, a deep brown colour with a frothy light tan colour. A roasted caramal and tangy cherry aroma. Mouthfeel is light, maybe a bit watery, smooth roasted flavours and an unusual bitterness for a mild. Got better through the glass.
