2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours very dark brown, almost black with a creamy nitrogen head. Not a very smooth ale, very high carbonation. A roasted taste with hints of coffee but tatsting is made difficult due to the gassy nature of the ale. Too many better alternatives, lower than average.

I probably havenít drunk a mild for 30 years, so I thought Iíd stretch my parameters: well, it looks good: pours deep ruby red with a beige head. However,Iím getting a rubbery vinegar aroma, and a taste more mouth dryingly sour than nutty. Not really enjoying this, perhaps it doesnít travel over the Pennines? Perhaps theres a reason I havenít drunk mild for 30 years. The further I get down the glass, the more actively unpleasant I find this, itís going down the drain.

Very dark pour
Very mild taste for so dark beer (some rye bread)
A bit of a disappointment

Bottle from a friend. Sour grassy malt aroma. Almost black colour, reasonable head. Tastes like sour cold tea. Sour aftertaste. One to water the plants with.
