August 2017 - Cask, handpull, at GBBF 2017, Kensington Olympia. As 'Enville Nailmaker Mild'. Opaque black with a foamy light brown head. As soon as the barkeep started pouring this I could smell the eggs. Aroma is highly sulphurous with some background biscuity malt. Body is light with soft carbonation. Taste is watery cola, sugary with a thin finish. I think the flavour is fine but the aroma makes it difficult to like this much.
