tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Cask, Orange Tree, Chelmsford, 15th May 2015.
Beige lacing. Opaque colour. Some red too. Aroma is leather, grains, blackcurrants, wood. Taste is blackcurrants, grains, leather, moderate chocolate, nice hoppy finish. Light-roasted. Great for an English mild. wheresthepath (2321) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle from Millets Farm, Frilford, nr Abingdon. Pours an unusual but attractive deep ruby with a huge craggy beige head. However, there’s a rather annoying prickly fizz that doesn’t suit the style. The flavours make up for it though- blackcurrant up fronct, then a big dry smokiness balanced by chocolate and malt in the finish. A gorgeous beer- reminds me why milds are my favourite style. So much flavour in such a low ABV. If only they could reduce the fizz... obviously need to have it on cask. SaintMatty (7300) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2013

Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Magohany with a loose beige head; earthy malt aroma; soft, with a nutty malt flavour; the finish has gentle, but assertive, English hops adding a pleasant bitterness.
