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.

On cask in London
I had some time to kill before the trip back north so I ordered a pint of this at The Harp. It actually was a striking example of a mild. With enough flavor to be interesting but not so much that it killed the palate it proves that not all session beers are boring. I hope I can find a few more like this.

Aroma / Appearance - The creamy little remnant of vanilla head decorated a brownish base. It sat in the glass like flat cola. Semisweet chocolate chips, coffee, and Jello pudding pops brighten the air with a velvety texture.

Flavor / Palate - The creamy mouthfeel glides gracefully across the tongue. Chocolate toffee, oaky coffee, and more carry into a pleasant bitter finish. From start to finish this is a worthwhile beer. Grab some on cask when you see it next.

Cask Real Ale tasted at Kuikka. Mild malty nose. Pale beige head. Clear dark brown color. Slightly sour malty and roasty and hoppy taste. At the end hops bite. More than average hops. Nice color.

Handpull at The Harp (Chandos). Deep brick red, clear, small creamy tan head. Solid roast aroma, some sour fruit. Taste is more bitter (herbal) but I think more sour than intended - a bit off-putting. Slick, still, quick finishing .... yet another "meh", mostly from the excess acidic tartness overpowering the roast.
