3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handpull cask at the Last Post, Derby. Mahogany and very translucent. My pint is very lively indeed so the thick creamy off-white head takes a while to settle. Chocolate malt, red wine, oak and sour cherry in the aroma. Sweet with a slight sourness on the long finish with black cherry and a touch of liquorice and even coffee in the aftertaste. Body isnít as weak as Iíd have expected. Grows on me, more complex that the first few sips suggest.

Gravity pour half-pint at the 8 Sail Brewery, Heckington on 24th May 2014. Bland offering of black looking Mild with a thin white collar. Some hop bitterness infringed into the maltiness both in the aroma and taste, didnít take to it at all. My first beer at the mini-festival and my worst of the day.

Old Fountain. Think Leighton bought this - cheers ears! Hazy dark amber - brown beer, little white head. Surprisingly rich malt, a little coffee. Decent tangy fruits. Lots going on for such a light mild.

Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Dark brown with a firm cream head. Aromas are chocolate malt energy drink with some nuttiness. Raisins with a light roast character. Flavours are nutty with coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. Sweet, fruity malts with a bitter finish. Some rubber on the aftertaste but otherwise this is very tasty for its strength.

[Cask at Reading beerfest] Dark brown, small off-white loose head. Chcolate and smoke dominate. Good chewy mouthfeel; very drinkable, thirst-quenching and more-ish - I could happily drink a lot of this. Dry finish. A great mild, easily stood up to the black IPA Iíd had just before.
