AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, - JAN 22, 2013
On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours a dark amber colour with a little glint of red. The head is well proportioned. The nose has mainly malty flavours but it doesn’t have any of the chocolate notes I expect from a Mild, there’s some biscuitiness instead.. I’d call this a bitter. Much the same on the taste. The palate has a medium body and texture but the finish could be a bit more refreshing - there’s some malt astringency. Overall, it’s solid but not one of their best beers. May have to revisit.

Cask @ White Lady, Edinburgh. Dark red, no head. Has a light soapy sweet nose and a relatively smooth texture. There’s a mild darker fruit sweetness in its taste.
