Cask; Status uncertain.
A typical old fashioned dark mild, but with a surprisingly fresh bitterness, which is held right to the very finish.

Very woody smokey aroma. Lovely dark appearance with a creamy beige head. Really caramel flavour with string caramel aftertones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2007
Cask (handpump) at GBBF, August 2006. Deep chestnut brown colour with a thin beige head. Light malt aroma - more grainy than roasty. Reasonably dry on the palate with ample nutty and caramel character. Decent fruity mouthfeel, not too thin with a touch of bite on the finish. An extremely drinkable and wholesome mild. Not sure how this differs from the regular Priory Mild but I found it rather more enjoyable.

Good, this guyus brew nice beers. The taste of the malts was nice, nice foam, not the favourite of some others, but it is not a law. I like the aftertaste and the aroma, not tiring after.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF. A very dark brown coloured beer. The aroma has some slight maltiness but not much else. The taste had some slightly stale roasted malt, and an oily character. It was however a little farty which, of course, let it down.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Cask at GBBF 2006. Very dark brown with disappearing beige head. Quite a bit of caramel. Quite a decent dark mild. Some dark malts. Decent depth of flavour. Bit of grainy powder on end. Nice mild.

Cask, GBBF 06. Very fruity, malty aroma, little taste though. Nice balanced palate. Gentle and good session
