MartinT (9617) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This quintessential Mild Ales earthy hops and lightly raisiny, caramelized malts thrive in a lush, soft mouthfeel, leading to a balancing leafy hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the dark russet.
-This is one luscious mouthfeel for a 3% brew.
-Biscuity notes are revealed in the nose after a while.
-Light fruitiness appears here and there.

On cask at The Cross Keys, Covent Garden.

jackl (7355) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Cask @ The Old Coffee House. The pours deep muddy brown with a medium khaki tan head. The aromas roasted malt, hot cocoa, a bit of sugar-roasted nut. Some coffee creamer and earthy licorice. The taste isnt completely unlike an oxo cube. Rustic savory flavors. A bit of midly bitter charred coffee. Chocolate syrup. A bit of grain. Sweet toffee, malteaser candy. Light body, pillowy mouthfeel. Quite smooth. Overall, a really nice mild.
