Probably what a muddy bog in the Land of Chocolate would taste like. Supping from all the rainwater between the Malteser-cobbled roads. Noice.

Cask conditioned at Headington Beer Festival #14, Masons Arms, Headington, Oxford. Dark brown with tan head. I couldn’t believe that I had never come across this beer before, a good example of a northern mild, richly roasted malt lead beer with a light background bitterness, hints of fruitiness. Good stuff.

Cask in the Puzzle Hall, Sowerby Bridge. A deep chestnut colour with a cream head. Taste is a little chocolate and a little coffee.

downender (7140) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2012
On gravity at the Volunteer, Bristol. Dark brown with a touch of red and tight, off-white head. Sweet, caramel aroma with a touch of fruit. Flavour was very sweet, with a syrupy edge and gently bitter finish. Aside from the caramel, there wasn’t much to this beer. Disappointing.

Cask conditioned handpump Town Hall Tavern Leeds 14/05/12. A black beer with a whitish head and lacing. Pretty thin. Caramel notes but little else. I suppose it’s the epitome of an old fashioned dark mild, but I’d appreciate more flavour.

May be a harsh rating but it wasn’t a memorable pint. It was fairly rich and had a dark brown/ruby look to it. Had it as a half on the TransPennine Ale Trail in the West Riding Refreshment Rooms.
