RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2009
Cask at the GBBF 2009. An appropriate beer for my 100th rating with it being the Champion beer at the festival this year. It’s a nice dark red beer with oak and wood chip aroma with maybe a touch of dark fruits in the background. Nice full palate and overall very well balanced. The flavours are fruity and hoppy with a lovely, long, bitter finish. Excellent and especially flavourful for a mild.

500ml bottle. Dark chestnut in colour with some reddish undertones. Big, but short-lived, tan head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma of blackcurrants, sweetish doughy malt and hazelnuts. Flavour was also sweet, with lots of berry fruit, some roastiness and a soft, bitter finish. Very drinkable.

BeerViking (2293) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2008
Cask in the Magpie & Crown, Brentford. A beautiful looking pint, deep red-black, with a thin head that lasted surprisingly long and laced the glass well. A sweet malty nose was followed by a full body with prune and dry roasty flavours, and then a dry bitter finish.
