3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark with a short head. Not much scent, just a hint of hops. Nice mouthfeel, slight carbonation. Bitter. In the mouth, raspberries, quite nutty with some sweetness on the end. Nice but a bit average.
Cask-conditioned at the Lamp Tavern, Birmingham 28/9/2016. Deep brown with a slight, off-white head. Brown sugar, a touch of chocolate and some toasty malts, before a pleasantly soft finish. A good mild. RichTheVillan (8443) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016

Cask conditioned handpull at Saracen’s Head, Worcester. Rather a nice roasty mild. It’s good. Nice bit of burnt choc, some biscuit. It’s pretty good, very drinkable. Little bit of powder/grain coffee on finish, bit of bitterness from roasted malt. Good. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2009
