Cask gravity dispense at London Drinker BF 2006. Up there with the Malt Shovel Mild in terms of flavours. Black beer with beige head. Coffee aroma with smooth darkness. Lots of smoked coffee after. Really good mild with lots of interesting flavour. Had this in bottle about a year ago and it seemed less salty. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2006

Very full. I kind of like to refer to imdownthepub below. "Smokey slab of bacon, bonfire night and toffee..." I don’t know about the apples though. Burnt was the initial and spontaneous reaction for me.

A gift from the organisers who clearly saw my enthusiasm for the beer. Jet black, juicy roasted flavour. Succulent and silky. Very nice, thanks to John for buying me this one.
Cask Conditioned at Oxford Beer Festival. This was goingfast when I was serving at the Festival, so I had to try. It was like a smokey slab of bacon, bonfire night and toffee apples all in one. A very tasty mild, one to savour, where can I get another.

Oxford Beer Fest. Gravity Fresh. A smooth, nicely bodied and flavoursome mild. A decent example. Some sasparilla. Some fragrant, flowery notes which add to the interest. Good smokey nose with elements of raspberry. Good. The Railway Tavern brewpub is getting a small reputation for the quality of this mild - their main product.
