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.

pours dark ruby brown with demerara and dried fruit on the nose. Rich dark fruit, a hint of licorice and dark chocolate on nose. Fab mild.

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2014
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!

WhiteStar (37) - Swindon, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2004
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.

leaparsons (8036) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2003
Dark, dark red in colour. This has a winter fruit, vineous aroma. Flavours are juicy, fruity malts, the finish is dry and moresish. Mmmm.

Gravity @ 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, UK. 26th May 2005
Dark brown with a roasted aroma. Full bodied for its strength. Caramel and chocolate dominates with a slight burnt character. Nice and long dry aftertaste
