Cask by handpump at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow - clear red / brown ale, good creamy tan head, malty, thin body, good temperature, easy to drink Grzesiek79 (4381) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 29, 2012
Bardzo dobre i wytrawne w smaku piwo typu mild Ale. Ciemna barwa, średnia ale utrzymująca się piana na powierzchni podczas picia. W smaku wyrażnie zaznacza się wytrawna chmielowa goryczku, która pozostaje dłógo po przełknięciu na podniebieniu. Wyrażnie czuć palony słód. thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Poured a murky dark brown that showed ruby highlights when held to the light. A nice moderately dense head that lasted quite a while.
S- Roasted nuts, cocoa, toffee and roasted grains
T -Dry Cocoa nibs, bitter coffee, tobacco, and roasted grains
M -Med bodied, smooth, soft on the tongue well carbonated with small bubbles. Very clean dry aftertaste
Overall, a good beer, better on cask. Went very well with my Thai green curry BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2012
50cl, English brew, from Bierzwerg Greven, not complex brew, malty/sweet and slightly roasted/salty, not balanced, clear, nearly no head, nothing special

Cask at a Nicholson’s pub. It pours deep ruby, with a thin off-white head. The nose is dark fruit, leather, leaf, damp wood and a hint of chocolate. The taste is wood, leather, vinous aspect, leaf, dark fruit and some chocolate, with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Tastes like a cross between a mild and an old ale. Not bad.

500ml bottle. Clear bourdeaux red glowing dark brown with small frothy beige head. Fruity aroma has lots of red and dark berries, a decent chocolate background. Taste is initially minimally sweet malty, slightly fruity, slightly dry to bitter hoppy; increasing bitterness in the middle part, with fading hoppiness a decent note of roasted malt shapes the finish, a bit watery, light body. Nevertheless nicely balanced and rich in taste. Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - JUN 4, 2012

.5l cool glass bottle, bought in Zagreb. Incredibly balanced dark ale, perfect to style with robust warm malts and a snapping hop balance. Lots of flavor in such low abv, which is the point. Very tasty. Dry bitter finish, reminded me of all the nice casked pints I had in England earlier this year. superflyguy (439) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2012
mild seems to be one of my favoured styles, this didn’t enliven my life!
way too thin and one dimensional.
bits and bobs of aroma and flavour that hinted at the possibility of being a half decent tipple. coffee, chocolate, roasty
