muffel (135) - Lower Saxony, - 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 (10968) - 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.

imdownthepub (10220) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Reddy dark brown with no head. Sweet, malty mild, few characteristics to get hold of, but nothing off putting either, just mild. Neither here nor there.

Cask (Elm Tree, Cambridge)
6 Simple sweet malty aroma
4 Deep red, tiny head.
6 Minerally, like the Shefford Bitter was, could be the local water.
3 Soft palate, carbonation low. Drying finish. Late finish liquorice and treacle.
12 Minerally dominated again, alas.
