500ml bottle, won from the tombola at GBBF, drunk at home, 21st Dec 2010. Black, fluffy tan head. Nose is nutty. Not so malty but rather lots of dark fruit flavours. Good body for <4%. Overall a mild that is less malty than usual.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled sample. Brownish-red in colour with moderate carbonation. Faint aromas of pale malt, minerals, orchard fruit and vanilla. Watery on the palate with notes of toffee, toasted nuts, molasses, and chocolate powder. A bit too watery and simplistic, but not all that bad either. Average.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tesco. Colour is black with reasonable full grey-tan head. Aroma is of nuts of course, with some smoke and liquorice notes. A bit metallic. Taste is exquisitely complex, sweet mostly but slightly bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle - pours black (surprise) with a thin tan head. Very little aroma, a bit oatmeal, a bit cereal, nothing too dramatic. Relatively smooth mouth feel, and clean taste for a mild. Afterwards, nothing unpleasant. I’m not a fan of milds, but this wasn’t bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Deep, ruddy dark brown colour with a medium sized, lasting creamy beige head with decent retention & that left a uniform lace. Very delicate background aroma profile, some nut, choc & roast but all hard to get at. Nutty, bready & yeasty flavours with an hint of fruit, lactic chocolate & an empty pasteurised-like quality. Light body, medium carbonation with a choccy, lightly roasted soft & shortish bitterness. Not a bad beer by any means; easy drinking but just too subtle & uneventful for it’s own good in my book.
