tombyars (1316) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear ruby red in colour with a thin buff head. Roast malt and then sweet winegums in the short aroma. Thin watery mouthfeel and poor lacing. Mixed malts give sweet fruit flavours of redcurrant and grape. A dry woody note present in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is sweet with a strong vinous edge. An ok session mild.

GraviCask (GBBF2011, Friday)
Milky roast. Fairly solid, but the lacticity built up and detractoed from teh taste eventually. Pretty OK, I guess.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2010
Cask conditioned, gravity dispense at The Lord Nelson Inn, Reedham, Norfolk. Reddy brown with white head. I had a big leafy tobacco note right away with this, then a sweetish chocolate, toffee flavour. Vanilla in the close, smooth but flawed.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2010
Cask - West Gate Inn (JDW), Canterbury. Poured a dark ruby with a medium size frothy, lacing tan head. Toasty malts, some yeast/bread and subtle choc on the nose. Good dark fruits, a roasty malt bitterness and hints of coffee. Softish palate with a touch of carb sting and a lingering finish. Nethergate know how to put together a decent mild.
