Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, - APR 1, 2008
Cask conditioned @ Nags Head, Reading. Light bodied with some reasonable malt flavours and some tangy fruit. I felt the flavours were slightly muddy as it was near the end of the barrel but other people were enjoying it in the pub, it seemed to be the fastest selling and more than one person went back for another.

Sadly the best feature was the aroma - nutty with hints of apple. Appearance mahogany with thin head. Taste balanced initially but aftertaste leaves sour malt on the tongue. I won’t seek it out.

jjsint (1549) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Cask at the Elm Tree, Cambridge. Dark brown, translucent, quite flat. Chocolate, parsley, cedar aroma. Confused. Bittersweet taste. with a slight balancing sour note. Very weak palette. Herby bittersweet finish and aftertaste. Disappointing.

"Shefford Dark Mild" - Almost black in colour. A touch of apple in the aroma. Simple, mild malty taste.

RichardGretton (4447) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Cask@The Criterion, Leicester. Black beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is dry and mildly roasted with some bitterness. Overall a nice gently bitter and roasted mild.

muffel (144) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2012
On tap at Cloisters in Edinburgh (named "Dark Mild"). Very dark redish brown with creamy beige head. Very soft carbonation. Light body. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet, malty and it has a very slightly bitter aftertaste. I thought the name fits.

On cask as Shefford Dark Mild at Cloisters. Pours a dark brown colour with a thick tan head. Aroma is dominated by caramel with chocolate and roasty malt also. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a yeasty linger.

Leighton (14695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2011
Cask at the Harp. Dark brown pour with a modest, off-white head. Strong roasted malt character in the nose. Flavor is lightly sweet with lots of dry, roasty malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. In the finish some leafy bitterness and ash, mild sugar. Good stuff.
