Light taste of roasted malt, really enjoyably drinkable and well-balanced. Good mild.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2012
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.

jackl (6814) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Cask @ The Coal Hole. Deep mahogany with a small, creamy white head. The nose is woody strawberry malts, brown sugar. The taste is red apple, rich wood polish, dusty nuts. Fermenting plums and toffee. Quite yeasty. Medium body, soft. Overall, there’s a bizarre yeastiness to this beer that didn’t sit well with me.

BlackHaddock (6012) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
This review is from the 30th CAMRA Cotswold beer Fest (2006). Up against Bateman’s Dark Mild, it came second in my opinion. Red-Black in colour with no head (it was gravity feed into my glass, by a lady who was not too great at the job). The aroma was there, but you had to search for it, roasted malt maybe, a touch of berry’s, not sure which type. Tasted like a Mild should, malty and a hint of caramel. I will have another if our paths cross, but I will not be searching high and low for it!

On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours dark amber to brown. The nose is initially quite expressive with resin and toffee being the main thing. The taste has more of the same. As the pint goes down, the flavours generally seem to become flatter. The palate is medium bodied and textured with quite a cloying finish. Overall, not for me, I’m afraid.
