3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ruby brown hazy and a slim tannish head with soft lacing. Nose is a little peppery and oaty initially, but then then rich fruity roast jets in with a tired brown sugar flatness. Initial taste is a roast with dogmition, lean and sweet with a decent stepover of earthy bitterness. Carbonation is slim and mouthfeel a touch thin. However finishes strong and sweet, charred veg and soft roast linger. A striking mild, not even for the "dark mild" deScription.
Cask, Marble Arch, Manchester
