Mobberley Red Vienna 3
Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A slightly hazy deep amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of hedgerow fruits, red berries, some orange, slight caramel and subtle spicy hops. Taste of hedgerow fruits, red berries, some caramel, slight orange, a little pine and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A sweetish, fruity, slight piney bitterness in the finish. A sweet, fruity beer. Can smell and taste the Autumn in this. Good but a little sweet for my liking, subtle bitterness.

Mobberley Maori 4.3
Belting pint. For a 4% beer the depth is top notch. Full of citrus and other fruity flavours. Really does taste a lot more powerful than it really is. The fruity flavours linger on the palate and the hoppy bitterness comes through in just the right amount.

Mobberley Concept #10 Galena Stout 2.7
A strange tasting stout. There are tart notes to it but also liquorice, bitter roasted malts and a touch of fresh green hop. Overall itís out of sync with itself.

Mobberley Red Vienna 3.3
Cask at Crown & Kettle, Manchester. Pale hazy red shade. White cap. Very hoppy for sure. Big grapefruit notes, slight soapiness, also quite earthy. Quite a creamy feel to the taste. Interesting how Mobberley have rebranded themselves and I can see it proving popular.

Mobberley Concept #9 Black IPA 3.3
Cask at the Stafford Arms, Bagnall. A glossy black pour with a thick white head; aroma of well roasted grains; deeply bitter taste, both from the hops and the roast; and a smooth dry finish with lingering hops.

Mobberley Maori 2.8
Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of biscuit, some caramel, slight honey and subtle Horlix malted milk. Taste of melon, some gooseberry, biscuit, Horlix again and subtle caramel. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, malt biscuity finish. Quite disappointed with this has its supposed to be a NZ hopped pale ale but itís mostly malty and boring. Slight hop presence in the taste.

Mobberley Whirley Bird 3.6
On cask at The Congress, Longton. No pump clip and I canít find any other beers with this name and the strength matches. Pours amber with stiff white head. I thought, here we go another light and boring ale coming up. Hell, was I surprised! Smoke, caramel, smooth and a bloody good ale for a beer of this strength. Plenty going on.

Cask. Hazy gold with a crumbling head. Light, floral aroma. Quite a lot of apple in the taste, with a slight sour tang. Reminds of faro lambic and some of the German styles. Quite good.

Cask at Pigs Ear. Clear gold beer, suddy white head. Light dry palate. Sulphur in the honeyish malt. Marmalade hops. Would have been fine but the sulphur ruins it.

Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest í12. Gold with white head. Light, quite thinnish, dry beer, some orange peel in the flavour. Easy but not lasting on the palate, a touch of sweetness. Ok but a but unassuming.

Mobberley Whirley Bird 3
Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival (Day 1) on 6 December 2011. First sighting of a beer from this new brewery for me. Fairly pale amber colour. A straightforward and easy-drinking session bitter with touches of biscuity malt and moderate bitterness, with just a twist of citrus. Perfectly solid but, surrounded by many other similar beers it didnít really stand out from the crowd.
