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.

Three Judges. Aroma is biscuity caramalt, completly malty. Taste is similar, a good effort at a ruby mild indeed.

Gravity, Peterborough Beer Festival 2006. Ruby with no head. Chocolate scent. Very hoppy, quite bitter. Hint of orange in the mouth. Very nice, but spoilt by a flat and watery mouthfeel.

Cask, Peterborough BF 06. Dark ruby, nearly no head. Bitter malt / hop combination. Sour cream. Carbonated mouthfeel, watery thin taste. Burnt malt, lasting dry bitterness. Hides quite a high strength for a mild well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2009 Cask conditioned at GBBF 06. Dark brown with ruby hue, light head. A good complex fruity malty mild, with a decent body if somewhat short on the finish. As with most beer at GBBF, not in great condition, but the quality can be detected in the dark fruitiness.
Re Rate at The Judges Lodgings, York Sept 09, York. Full, fruity and very tasty
