Cask gravity at Red Lion, Snargate, summer bf 08. Dark ruby mild. Curious mild. Roasty, but an unusual roasty. Deep malts. Some dark fruits, morello cherry and plums. In fact quite a lot of cherry. Quite distinctive and pleasant.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Ealing Beer Festival.
Almost opaque very dark red colour with a thin beige rim. Lovely blackcurrant fruity notes with some good dark malt. The fruity notes are really good, as is the good milky chocolate finish with a slight smoky hint. A no frills, very drinkable traditional mild.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2007
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, dark with ruby tints - no head. A sweet malty aroma. Very smooth in the mouth, followed by a dry finish, though a little flavourless.

Cask (Ealing BF2008)
Classic dark mild appearance. Apple and slight peardrop aroma. Estery taste. Plain grainy body too. Left me wanting, but not actually disappointed. Probably EOB.

Although this beer is from a well established microbrewery with a small chain of pubs, the beers don’t often make an appearance down south, so this was a rare and welcome opportunity for me to try the mild. I guess because they have their own tied house, they don’t feel the need to hawk their wares round beer festivals and through the free trade too much. This is billed as a traditional mild and you can’t argue too much with that. Mild malt and caramel dominate with just the slightest hint of coffee in the background. Dry, slightly chalky mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Decent enough. Cask (gravity), Reading Beer Festival 2005.

Cask at the Brewery Arms, Keighley, West Yorks, 20-05-06. A simple but pleasant mild, that went down well.

Cask@GBBF2007. Deep rubyish amber colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel malts, dark fruits, some flowery hops as well as mild yeast. Flavour is the same along with some mild roast and coffee. The coffee stays in the aftertaste too, along with dark fruits. Rather mild mild.
