3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned 500ml worth of beer poured into a UK sleeve.
Good looking brew, dark and with a huge foaming tan coloured head.
Mildly coffee and malty molasses in the smell and taste with a soft feel to the overall flavours.
Not had a good mild for a while, this has reminded me how good they can be.

Mild ale, dark with a red glow, no head. Has a slightly sweet, slightly nutty aroma, less than its name would suggest. The same can be said for its taste.
