Sampled at the Medway Beer Festival 2007 - This was a nice, very drinkable little mild. A little stronger than a standard mild and was good for it. Not too sweet, which I liked and hints of hop and a bitter aftertaste. Good.

Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004)
Rich brown, little head. Sweet roasted malts on the nose, rather like the other dozen milds I’d had that day - so this one didn’t stand out as being great. Graininess in the body, maybe biscuityness. Competent mild, not exceptional.
