Dark nutty brown color, small beige head. Smoke and tobacco in the aroma. Light palate has tobacco and toasted malts. Too much color malts, too burned.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle courtesy of Tom B who picked it up on a recent trip to England and brought it over to share. Dark hazy brown pour with a medium tan head and some decent rings of lace. Chocolate, lightly roasted nuts, and maybe even a little coffee in an aroma that is not overwhelming, but subtly inviting. Smooth, medium body and light carbonation, a nice velvety mouthfeel that belies it’s low ABV. Predominantly malt based flavors with hints of licorice, and the hops make their presence known only by the lack of residual sweetness. This is a delicately balanced and well crafted brew, and the very low ABV would make it a great session beer. Too bad we can’t get it over here in the States.

Cask (Gravity) at Charlbury Beer festival 04-07-09 Pours dark brown, no head and also lacking a little in the aroma stakes. Taste is good, plenty of nuts also strangely I get Coca Cola, there is also a little chocolate. A decent mild though it wasn’t quite as good as I was hoping it would be. A6 A3 F7 P4 Ov13 3.2

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
5OOml bottle conditioned. Poured quite dark with a good sized off white head which lasted well down the glass. Malt and some smokeiness on the nose, with malt and a slight liqourice flavour in the mouth. A very smooth mild with the right balance (for me) of bitterness and sweetness, ie. more of the former and less of the latter. A good example of a northern dark mild.
