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.

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!

Cask conditioned @ Railway Arms. A farmers bag of wild hedgerow fruits ripe for the plucking and dark as a smuggler’s cave. A blessing in disguise.
