downender (6880) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2008
On gravity at the London Drinker festival 12/3/08. Near black with a decent tan head that left plenty of lacing. Big aromas of roasted malt, black fruit and dark chocolate. Full in the mouth with plenty of milk chocolate and fruit flavours, before some earthy hops and a dent bitter finish. Excellent.

Cask-A very good example of a mild in my opinion. A fairly nice roasted malt aroma along with a bittersweet taste with a very mild and subtle hop flavour.

500ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A pleasant roasty mild. Very easy drinking and nicely flavoursome. An attractive tobacco rub bitterness in the finish. Everything is held together firmly. A damn good low abv bottled beer - fresh and tasty!
