3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Handpulled cask at the Express Tavern, Kew Bridge. A very dark beer; almost black with a hint of red. The aroma is like sour chocolate as is the taste. The alcohol comes through very strongly and it is hard to believe it is only 3.8%. Not a typical mild but a good drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask. Sweet soy and sweat aroma. Very dark brown colour. Almost no head. Sweet grassy hop aroma, also some soy. Thin mouthfeel. The colour led me to believe this was a malty beer, but it seems more focused on the hops.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[CASK - Shared with MiP at C4.] Nice to sample a beer with a low ABV and with such a intense flavor. Come on you microbrewers, make something similar. Redbrown and with a small head. No carbonation, but intense complex notes of roast, smoothness, caramel, bread, yeast, nuts, malt and wood. Good beer!
