Cask; Regular.
The mirror image of Rock Bitter, smooth and dark with a biscuity flavour. Back in the pre-war days this beer would have been on sale in virtually every one of the brewery's jug and bottle counters throughout the county and beyond.

DruncanVeasey (7318) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
The Trent Bridge, Nottingham, 11/04/14. Dark ruby topped with beige. Dunkelweizen-like plum and spiced apple on nose; chocolate, citrus hop. Really decent with contemporary citrus and blackcurrant undercurrents leaning towards bipartisan (black IPA!). Some coffee grounds; slight tang of sour. Really good.

edsspoon (571) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Deep ruby red with a creamy light brown head and some good lacing. Aroma is sweet and floral with roasted malt. Taste is sweet, malty, fruity and quite dry. Hints of hoppiness, honey and floral.

BlackHaddock (4213) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint in the Old Blenheim, Oxford during a heavy pub crawl on 23rd Nov 13. Lovely dark body with tanned crown of smooth foam which hung around for a while. The nose was of over roasted malts and fruit esters, semi-sweet caramel came through too. The taste was similar to what the aroma promised: malty, semi-sweet and fruity in nature. Nothing to set it apart from all the other well made UK Milds around, but a fine example of the art, even if it lacked individuality. The body was heavy enough for a 3.8% Mild and almost smooth in texture, made a pleasant change from some of the brews I’d had before and after on my Uber crawl around Oxford.

Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 15/11/13. Light black/extremely dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head that clears to a swirl. Nose is light toffee, sawdust, earthy, faint berry fruits, liqourice. Taste comprises cocoa, hint of soap, liqourice, touch of berry fruit, Soreen Malt Loaf, Ribena. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry conclusion. Decent mild.

wimpyjoe (4637) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2012
An uninspiring mild rescued somewhat by a half decent aroma, but overall a weak texture.

Leighton (12200) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2012
Cask at the Duchess of Cambridge, London. Pours rich, black-brown with a frothy, beige head. Dark, almost burnt toast nose. Light sweet flavor with subtle dark fruits, light cocoa, raisins, grapes. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Nice condition. Moderately dry to finish, lightly toasty, with darkly toasted sugars, light dirt, purple grapes. A basic but fairly well-rounded mild.

ng9beermonkey (43) - ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Bitter finish, not too overpowering. Not much on the nose. Good head like that looks like an espresso in colour, and lasted to the bottom of the glass. Roasted taste like burnt toast, with a certain sweetness.

Cask @ 12th Ayrshire Real Ale Festival, Troon 2011. Dark brown colour, tan head. Nose is light caramel, little coffee and a bit of sourness. Flavour is slightly coffee, massive biscuit, little hoppy. Not too well.
