prawlie (1052) - Berkshire, - NOV 10, 2011
Half pint at the Twickenham Beer Festival 2011. Dark amber/brown, little or no head. Excellent sour grape aroma. Slightly sour, on a cereal/oatey base. Smells better than it tastes unfortunately. A bit dull really, but not particularly bad.

stravale (1883) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 25, 2014
Cask @ Cob and Pen, Rhyl [230314]
Dark caramel, thin beige head, good lacing
Aroma of soft caramel, light cereal malts
Taste of caramel, soft sweet toffee, slight dab of twiggy hop, touch of dark fruits, not bad for the abv
Palate - Light body, bit oily, good mouthfeel for abv. Finish of soft sweet caramel malts, soft toffee
Overall - Better than expected - but not really a mild, more a malty low abv bitter

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Another of my rare cask tastings when my wife Glenys was driving. A light coloured mild with a gentle maltiness. Pleasant and non threatening. Pretty much what I had expected.

berkshirejohn (4196) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Cask at the Stag and Hounds, Binfield, sitting in the garden, on the first good afternoon of the summer. Copper with a dense cream head; rich malty aroma; soft, grainy, body, sweet malt taste, and gently bitter; the finish is bisuity with some caramel. A satisfying mild - but that may be due to the sunshine.

Leighton (9830) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise - London. Pours. Lear gold with a slight, white foam head. Nose has creamy malts, leaves, faint caramel. Light sweet flavor, some toasty sugars, leafy bitterness, vague fruits. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Modest sweetness to finish, some faint citrus, impressions of dry caramel, leaves, bread. Simple but not offensive.

JorgeLee (1065) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2012
Cask in the Old Bell, Dursley. A brown beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet and malty, palate quite thin and watery, taste as per smell - sweet, malty caramel and a faint hint of treacle. Could really do with something more bitter or dry to balance it out. Too sweet for me.
