UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 This has a great toffee character...tastes like the top of a crème brulée. Yum.

Keg (Wortley Almshouses, Peterborough)
Dark, huge keggy beige head. Slightly sour aroma. Dark malts. Taste is more caramelly, but has an OK roast. Watery, but refreshing. Milky in places. A bit like some breakfast cereal. A bit chemical in places. Ice cream?

Borresteijn (4928) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2010
Cask or tap at Cramond Inn, Cramond, Scotland, at only 3% if I recall correctly. Deep dark brown to black colour, creamy off white head. Aroma of dark fruits, nuts, light tart, grapes. Flavour of light roasted malts, light fruity, a bit earthy, light tart, dark fruits, light bitter finish. Light bodied, watery.

berkshirejohn (4679) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2014
Keg at the Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street. A deep purple brown pour with a nitro-style creamy beige head; some chocolate malt on the nose; smooth and creamy in the mouth with a biscuity taste and some red fruit; and a dry, lactic, finish. A fairly traditional, drinkable, mild.

Disappointing mild which is crisp, but only as its lacks character and flavour. Keeps a nice head though.
