Express Tavern, Brentford, Greater London

Martin the MildmanGood14 Jul 2011 Quite a bitter sample, with a dryish fruity finish probably indicating it was served a little too fresh. My score 15/20.
Martin the MildmanExcellent24 Feb 2011 On form here with full bodied chocolatey maltiness and a slight tang in the finish. My score 16/20.

The Last Inn, Oswestry, Shropshire

Bear & Ragged StaffAcceptable20 Mar 2011 Will have to try this again as it didn't quite live up to its reputation. Caramel flavours but followed by slight acidity which spoilt the overall taste. Reasonable body for 3.0%.
