BeerABVScoreNotes
RCH - Hewish Mild3.60ExcellentUnusually black for a West Country mild, this is full of biscuity and toffee malt flavours with some fruity hop for balance. The finish is malty and lingering. My score 17/20.

Another busy pub on a Saturday afternoon with standing room only inside.
BeerABVScoreNotes
