3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the The Littleton Arms in Penkridge. Black with a slightly smoked maltiness. Plenty of impact considering its relatively low strength. I felt that it was more like a stout than a mild.

Cask at Black Door, Helsinki. Colour is almost black with slightly brownish white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, dryness and roasted malts. Sorry but mild ales as real ale are quite useless and watery but this one is better than average.
