3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ The Alma, Painters Forsdal, Kent. A clear, deep amber body with a small tan head. Light and nice aroma of slightly roasted dark malt, dark fruit and a hint of liquorice. Flavor is soft, dark malt, slightly roasted, moderate bitterness, fruity and perfectly balanced for a mild. Medium body and medium aftertaste. Nice and really smooth correct to style mild.

The Sun Inn, Kelvedon. Clear dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Palate is light and dry. Super mellow dark malt. Just a bare whisper of roast. Touch of dark fruits. Dry finish. Actually pretty well joined up and drinkable.

Extremely dark mahogony brown with a bubbly beige head.

Light to medium in body but not unduly thin, just right for a mild, medium carbonation lending towards a dryish finish.
