2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Muddy brown coloured body with a very thin tan head. Aroma of very light roasted malt, some nuts and a touch of caramel - fairly light. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong nuttiness with malt at first showing a lot of very mild characteristics afterwards with only a bit of caramel and some minor fruits as well. Aftertaste fairly bland and watery with some malt and soap/cardboard afterwards. Overall, not such a great beer, and not showing enough flavours or complexity, even for this style! I sampled this pint on draught at the Rake in London (Borough), England on 13-December-2008.

Cask at the wenlock arms. Alround rating: Caramel, lots of caramel, its drinkable and very typical of a low % mild, however theres just too much caramel in here for me.

A Mes rate. Cask at the Wenlock. I was pleasantly surprised by this. Dark brown with a slim beige head. Good fruity chocolate with some faint milky coffee notes. Tastes freshly brewed, good fruity malt and some faint caramel. Rounded, delicate and enjoyable.

Cask at the Charles Dickens, Sothwark.
Well, its a mild, and the style does not excite me. Soft and malty, but it is too bland.
