Cask. Dark ruby pour with ever present head. Solid maltiness, with plenty of fruit to lighten things - blackberry, grape? An oddly light-drinking dark ale. Interesting one. deanso (10123) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - MAY 19, 2012

Cask, The University Arms, Sheffield, UK. Mahogany colour, caramel and some raspberry aromas. Sweet then a mouth filling bitterness that is mellowed by the malt. DanielBrown (4549) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2011
Hand pulled (probably) at the Wellington, Birmingham. A bit of tobacco and thin choc here. Rather on the harsh side for a Mild I thought. downender (8928) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Derbyshire beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 6/12/10. Ruby red in colour with a decent, off-white head. Sweetish, fruity aroma with some powdered chocolate. Flavour was similar with some light bitterness in the finish. Enjoyable.
