Cask at Wetherspoons, under the Central Library, Birmingham. Rather sour and slightly hard edged bitterness. Felt mainly dry, with a chunk of berry flavours. Nice, admirable, but slightly unremitting on the old tonguemeat. Didn’t feel particularly like a Mild, but then again, what the dickens do I know? Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - NOV 11, 2010

Cask at the Baron Cadogan (JDW), Caversham. Reddish copper with a thin beige head; the aroma has some resinous hops; not as thin as expecting with some nively roasted toffee malts and some grapefruit bitterness. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2010
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford, in ’Spoons Beer Festival ’10. Dark brown. What is that aroma? If not coriander, it’s something I associate with cooking a curry. Taste adds some slightly soapy leaves. Mid bitter finish. To be honest I found this a bit grim and dreary.
