jmgreenuk (7674) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 18, 2016
Cask at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Poured a clear reddish brown with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is light malt, some fruity hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light dry fruit, metallic hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. More like a red ale than a mild. I notice the word "mild" has now been removed from the pump clip too.

Nov 2015 - Cask at The White Horse Old Ale Fest 2015. Very dark red, opaque, still, small ring of tan head. Aroma is biscuits, earthy, a little sooty. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is biscuity, watery, nutskins, touch of spice. Nice oat biscuits vibe but too watery overall.

Perfekcyjnie gładkie, super aksamitne piwo. Do tego bardzo pijalne, sesyjne. Fajne do posiedzenia w knajpie nad pintą.

Cask at the Rose & Crown, Sandhurst. Deep chestnut in colour with a tight cream head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass; earthy aroma; sweet nutty malt taste with some chocolate and coffee; and a dry biscuity finish with a satisfying bitterness. A very good mild.
