COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Occasional.
This beer, previously available only in Cornwall, is named after one of Cornwall’s most beautiful fishing villages, pronounced ‘mowzel’. It’s now making its national début, exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. It is amber in colour, with a superbly balanced flavour and smooth

A weak looking ale, but its bitter weak taste is not as bad as its appearance.

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats in April 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear amber in colour with a thin white head. Warm yeasty dough note in the brief aroma. Poor lacing and thin mouthfeel. Pale malt gives a peppery digestive biscuit note with tart redcurrant fruit. Metallic tang present in the bitter resiny aftertaste. Finish is hoppy with dusty floral notes giving an added astringency to the finish. A poor session bitter.

Cask Handpump at the Penny Black JDW, Northwich 28/03/2011 Floral aroma. Small white head. Golden coloured hoppy and fruity with a hint of bitterness in a dry and grainy finish.

JDW Fest. Hazy gold beer, residual white head. Dry palate. Trace of paint. A little citrus. Overdry, dull and a bit odd. Bitterish aftertaste. Drinkable though!

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clearish, rich gold pour with aum, off-white head. Woody malt aroma, some herbal tea. Lightly sweet flavor, dankness like weed, some mild citrus rot. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Earthy, dank finish, light malts, some grass. Weird but alright.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
Served by Cask at JDW, Poste of Stone, Stone. A good summertime beer with fruity aftertaste. Very smooth and more flavoursome than many Skinners beers.

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton. A dark copper coloured beer with a whitish head. A malty beer with tastes of straw. Chewy. Berry notes in the nose and a fruity finish. Too chewy but otherwise OK.

Bullit (4007) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 9, 2011

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2011
The Baron, 01/04/11. Murky orange amber, low dense collar, fine-dappled lace. Not much of a looker. Odd perfumed aroma like guava or papaya. Perfumed orange and tropical fruit taste finishing with bread, vanilla and lingering hop. Some plastic lunchbox and odd Belgian yeastiness/spice- coriander, presumably. Better than expected.
