Mill Green Farmhouse Citra 3.5
Cask at The Anchor, Digbeth, Birmingham. Poured a murky light straw with a thin white head and loads of broken lace. The aroma is zesty citrus fruit Citra hop. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a smooth hop light bitter malt weak barnyard palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Went down a treat I must say. Love the Citra and perfect ABV for a session.

Tangy, ripened fruits to finish. Not bad.

Bottle from Pigs Ear Beer Festival, consumed on 3 December 2010. Fortunately, this bottle seemed in better shape than the ones some other raters seem to have got. Dark amber colour.

275 ml bottle thanks to larsniclas! On February 4, 2011
Hazy copper color, small white head. Strawberry at first, then mostly acidic to sour lactic like scent. Thin, malty, stale tsate. Thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.
In a blind tasting I would have guessed it was a lambic or a gueze on that smell! And a good one too... Too dark in color for most of those though. But for a BW I guess it should not smell like that... Well, my high score for the smell is for the wonderful lambic like aroma though, I like that! Even if it perhaps shouldn’t be like it, still works for me...

Mill Green Old Bull Ringer 2.4
(Bottle) Pours muddy orange brown. The aroma is buttery and light spicy from the oak alongside a clear sourish tone. Dry cracker-like malt. The flavour is LIght to medium sweet, light to medium bitter and light acidic. Mild oak and resinous, light fruity and spicy hops. The malt is too laidback for a BW. The mouthfeel is tart and a bit watery. Light carbonated. Oak in the finish. Medium bodied.

Mill Green Old Bull Ringer 2.1
Bottled. A dark brown, headless beer. A sour fusty red fruits aroma showing signs of infection. It’s the same in the mouth although the fruitiness is now raisins and works better. Still has sourness and still isn’t right.

Mill Green Good Ship Arbella 3.2
Cask gravity at Colchester BF 2011. Gold thin white head. Sticky syrupy American hop aroma. Bit too syrupy and sweet on the hops I think. I had this next to the Harwich Town APA which was better. Not a huge difference in ABV but this is too sweet and syrupy whilst the Harwich Town was light and agile. Hops on this are ok but too sweet

Mill Green Loveleys Fair 4.4
This was a most enjoyable beer, drunk in the Edwardstone White Horse pub, which the Mill Green brewery sits behind. The best of the range of 5 ales they had available on the day we visited, and one I will certainly seek out in the future.

Hand pulled cask at the Egham BF. Ruby/black without a head. Sweet watery malts with a touch of caramel. Fresh tasting but flat and dull.

Mill Green Good Ship Arbella 3.8
Hand pulled cask at the Egham BF. Amber/gold with a white head and good lacework. A good crack at an APA but a little sweet at first. However, the US hops soon catch up with you and the overall impression led me to a second half. A very sound beer indeed.
