Cask; Occasional - most recently as monthly special for May 2011.
A beer from a less well known mild tradition for strength with soft flavours and gentle hops. Mashed with 100% mild ale spring barley malt and then with Golding hops in the copper give the restrained bitterness.

mR_fr0g (14241) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Cask at Tap East after velodrome session. Nice but brown / ruby red coloured pour with a lasting cream coloured head. Aroma is nice Moorish fruit and nuts, dried raisin, red berry, rum, little vanilla. Flavour is layered nutty, caramel, raisin, varnish. Little solvent on the tongue. Solid flavoursome mild. Palate is medium sweet, medium bodied with low to average cask condition. Enjoyable mild.

Birronauta (8) - San Severino Marche, ITALY - JUL 8, 2015 does not count
Brown colour. Roasty malts, a little bit of coffee and caramel with a hint of vanilla. Hoppy and fruits. Low bitterness and dry finish.

Nocturne (2238) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Cask at the Grove Inn, Huddersfield. Dark copper/brown. Lasting foamy head. Light fruity aroma. Opens with thin malts, widens into smoky and earthy flavours, twiggy hops, dark fruits, phenolic notes. Does taste suitably old fashioned. Some flavours could be interpreted as off but I think it’s all deliberate. Good mild.

Cask at the Cask, Pimlico, 16/06/14. Mahogany brown with reddish hues and moderate light tan edgework. Nose is malty, nutty, dark fruit rind, tobacco, light cocoa. Taste comprises fruit loaf, earthy rinse, more tobacco, dark fruit peel, faint tea leaves. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Ok mild, plenty of flavour for the style but so it should at 6%!
