3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A dark ruby coloured beer with a mountainous gushing whitish head. I was convinced that after a ten or so minute pour this beer would turn out to be infected, but it as surprisingly good. Smoke and hops in the aroma with chocolate, fruit, a hint of sourness and roast in the mouth. Bottled Conditioned milds rarely wotk, but this does.

This was very dark, with a big bubbled beige head. The palate is lovely soft and very malty, not that nutty to be honest, there is a hint of coffee on the finish. A great quaffable brew, could drink loads of this.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2010 June 2009 Bottle conditioned from Morrisons. Thwaites Mild (under various names ) is one of their more notable beers, and when served in good condition it is a very decent beer indeed. Being a dark roasty, low hopped beer, it stands up well to pasteurisation - but this is the beer Thwaites have decided to test as a bottle conditioned ale. Perhaps because it is such a robust little ale, that they feel it can hide the flaws better? Anyway, the extra strength works well, and this is a decent quaffable mild. It is soft and creamy, with interesting chocolate notes and touches of vine here and there. Quite likeable. [3.3]
Nov 2009 Bottle conditioned from Morrisons. Cracking beer - very drinkable. Lovely sweetness. Hmmmm. I could drink a fair bit of this stuff. [3.9]

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep ruby against the fire with a fine persisting beige rim. Nose of rusty girders, faint chocolate and grass. Iron filings on rye bread with a sprinkle of choc. Quite a thin grainy beer with some schwarz-like licks. Itís alright.
