Mahogany brown beer with creamy blonde head. Aroma has chocolate, peat, vanilla and berries. Flavor is dry with vanilla, mint, fruits and berries. Palate is thin and fluffy. Finish has mild bitterness. Aftertaste has berries, metal and sweet malts. Very flavorless, has some downsides of cask ales. Interesting aroma on first nose, cannot put my finger on it now...

Another really good Mild. Very soft and sweet. The excellent brown sugar taste is intensified by the oily, sugary body. Just enough hop bitterness at the back to make you want another sip. Rich and rewarding. Stuu666 (13394) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2014
