3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-pulled half-pint during the 34th Telford Beer Festival at the Crown Inn, Oakengates on 4 May 2013.
Ruby to dark brown body with an off-white head.
Coffee and dark chocolate esters hit your nose and these follow on into the taste, this is a lovely malty yet dry tasting Mild. It has a bitter finish but not overly so: I found it most enjoyable, it is a long way from the old Milds that used to be seen all over the UK, this had more body and flavour thoughout.
