Cask at the Antelope in Surbiton. A little coffee, some nut, roasted malt, very drinkable. Pleasant, a bit more like a mild.

Tried at the Queens Head, Kings Cross. I would have called this a Mild every day of the week. Dark reddish brown colour slight tan head. Aroma light coffee and roasted malt. Taste slight sweet fruity to roasted bitter. Thinnish body.

On cask at Monsal Head Hotel. Appearance - deep amber to red with a creamy head. Nose - toffee, nuts and sweet malt. Taste - soggy bran flakes (not in a bad way), honeycomb . Palate - Overall - this is good and Id say its more of a Scottish Ale in style.

Gravity cask at the Draymans Son, Ely. Very dark brown, a bit flat-looking with no head to speak of. Coffee and charcoal aroma. Focussed and intense. Taste starts sweet but the burnt coffee bitter pervades just after the initial sip. Bodys a bit thin and flat but its not the end of the world. I like this but... a bitter? Are you sure?
