3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (handpull) at the Royal Oak, Ockbrook. Dried-blood-black body, a whisp of singed malt, tangental hedgerow fruits and a momentarily toasted finish. Not gluggable like its sister Pollux but still an accomplished mild at this ABV.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled at the Anchor, Birmingham. Dark black beer, beige head. Quite similar (especially in appearance and abv) to Pollux, but softer, with a more powdery malt finish. Doesn’t have the same edge as Pollux and is a more standard Mild.
