Mumbles Lifesaver 3.3
18th April 2015: gravity poured half-pint at the Stourbridge CAMRA Beer Festival. 4.9% ABV according to the beers notes. Bronze/amber body, white head that stayed. Malts lead the way in this semi-sweet, semi-fruity brew, the finish a little dry and slightly bitter. Decent.

Mumbles Mile 3.3
18th April 2015: gravity poured half-pint at the Stourbridge CAMRA Beer Festival. Golden with a white topping. Chinook hops blend well with the malts to give a fruity beer with a mango and orange flavouring, the aroma being also on the fruity side. Drying slightly bitter finish: nice.

Mumbles Oystermouth Stout 4
Great stout in cask at the GWBCF14. Pours black with light tan head. Aroma is roast and coffee. Great silky mouthfeel to it, feels heavier than what the abv gives away. Flavours have the woody sharpness of roast barley mixed with a tinge of floral hops, then light chocolate, coffee. Finishes clean and dry with no astringency but some of the refreshing sharpness of the roast barley. Best session strength stout in the festival.
