3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask dark brown thin beige lasting head. Muted aroma some toasty notes. Taste something like plum to start before the toasted malt takes over which continues to develop in the mouth and lingers for a long time
Thin mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Grows on you. Much better than I was expecting.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at Nicholsons Drum & Monkey. Very nice beer... Quite surprising as it appears somewhat ambiguous at first sight! Quite a nice full bodied beer for its low ABV which goes to show strength isnt everything for complex beers. Mild roasted notes, hop up front, sweet syrupy taste with a dry roasted coffee finish. Great!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask @ Guide Dog, Southampton. Translucent dark brown. Looks lightweight. Aroma and taste say otherwise! Aroma is maltissimo, still flavours as diverse as cherries and earth come through. Sweet and light with sour edges. Bitter aftertaste. A brilliant mild which excels with complex aroma and taste while remaining a mild in character.
