2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Aroma is an appealing maltiness, has a great solid head and a nice dark amber body. Very sweet malt flavour. A great balanced beer.
