Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. Loads of beers shared with ChrisO and Harrisoni - Cheers! Clear dark brown beer, residual white head. Light malt - ephemeral almost. A whisper of hop fruit. Apologetic beer!

Theydon_Bois (16903) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
Gravity dispense at the 23rd Battersea Beer Festival - 06/02/13. Dark mahogony brown with a thin beige head that lingers only as a film and a pocket of bubbles. Nose is roast malt, toffee, light coffee notes, molasses. Taste follows, roast malt, brown sugars, dark toffee, light mocha-choco tones. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dryish finish. A most enjoyable mild!

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2007
Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004) Dark brown, little head. Quite hoppy for a mild, sweet spicy hops augment the sweet roasted malts ion both the aroma and the taste. Hints of dark fruits too. Competent mild, very tasty.
