Cask; Regular.
A typical old fashioned dark mild, but with a surprisingly fresh bitterness, which is held right to the end

Not quite black but very dark with a thick off-white head. Poor character mild, little aroma or flavour, possibly a bad barrel. 44438

Dark purplish brown. Spruce and summer berry aromas. Sweet taste throughout, fruitiness lingers. Odd rough aftertaste which marks the taste down a point or two. Quaffable but imperfect.

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Wheatsheaf, Borough 4 Nov 12. Dyp rød. Nesten svart. Lavt lagskum. Søt fruktaroma. Plommer. Smaken litt ingefær. Tørr ettersmak dominert av samme krydder. Under pari.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2012
Half-pint, cask at Wheatsheaf, shared with Finn. Good looking, deep, dark coloured body. Dissipating beige head. Dark malts to the nose added by a drop of resin. The flavour displays aniseed malts, wood and resin-like hops. Bitter liquorice malts to the ending. Tasty mild (London, 4.11.2012).

mjs (4438) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2012 (Cask at Angleterre, 20121119) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized, white and long lasting. Aroma had malts and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, grass and bitterness. Afteraste was malty and bitter. The hops were quite strong for a mild but that was not too disturbing.
