Towey1989 (962) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Cask at The Cock Inn, Leek (Joule’s) A deep brown colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of red berries, cherry, some raisin, cola, caramel, slight chocolate and some sour tones. Taste of cherry, raisin, caramel, spicy red berries, some roasted malts, fruitcake, chocolate and treacle. Medium bodied and a soft carbonation. A sweetish, fruitcake flavoured finish. Wonderfully complex mild, unbelievable for its style. Fruity, roasty and malty, good body too.

To hell with Aquinas’s ontological argument this is the only proof of God one needs. Aroma like rich loam. Colour dark in shadow ruby in the light with lace. Palate full and complex. I do not like damsons but they taste heat here. If it has a fault it’s being too strong and hefty for a lightweight like me. If this were mother’s milk there is none of us would be weaned.

Kolor ciemnobrunatny, klarowne. Piana niska, gesta, przybrudzona, praktycznie nie opada i mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie w zasadzie tylko alkohol, co prawda w wydaniu sliwkowym, morelowym i rodzynkowym (ogolnie suszone owoce), ale jednak. Po chwili ujawnia sie tez lekka przyprawowosc, co sprawia, ze aromatem przypomina jakiegos biednego quadrupla. W smaku w zasadzie to samo co w aromacie, smakuje to po prostu jak jakis lzejszy quadrupel, suszone owoce, przyprawy, spora lodygowosc, takze sporo alkoholu, co prawda nie jest on piekacy i drapiacy, jedynie rozgrzewajacy i lekko kwasny, a samo piwo jest raczej gladkie i smukle, ale takie cos nie powinno miec miejsca w piwie, ktore ma zaledwie 6%, a szczegolnie wtedy, gdy nazywa sie mild. Jezeli juz, to jakis dziwnie przyprawowy old ale, lecz na pewno nie mild.

Cask @ Engineers Arms, Henlow. Light reddish brown with a bit of white head. Aroma of candy sugar, lingonberries, slight tinge of balsamic vinegar. Taste is a sweet/sour assertion of its strength, with a bitter/sour fruity finish. A tough beer to rate, as it has to be served in optimum condition to appreciate it. Drinking it in a top pub, as is my privilege tonight, helps. But even still, every sip is different, every finish reveals a slightly different shade of its character. Worth exploring for its many facets.

Gravity pour at wandsworth common bf. Pours a dark red/brown with an off white head. Aroma is sweet, with a medicinal pepto bismol thing and caramel. Medium body, mild carbonation. It's sweet, with dark fruit, candy, a little cough medicine, rum, toffee, slight grass and light wood. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at the pub, Leicester. Dark ruby colour (well duh). This is really nice. Not a strong aroma- a bit plummy. The taste is plums, chocolate, dark malts. You can get the alcohol on the back end. Really is a good mild. (Mild never used to be lower alcohol yadayadayada). A supper though and I only had 20 mins. You could milk this for a long time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
