Built on the foundations of a classic Mild Ale recipe this dark beer has a smooth character. A welcoming flow of full bodied flavours is followed by a pleasant rounded finish derived from a delicate balance of malt and hops.

The_Osprey (3841) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015. The brewery is pronounced ’beaver’, and the East Midlands bloke in my work would go nuts if you tried to pronounce it any other way. Anyway, it’s dark brown or black with a decent tan head. Aroma is molasses. Body is medium, watery texture, smooth. Taste is watery, soft malts, sweet finish with no real bitterness. Standard mild, one of the most basic at the festival.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Fra cask på Hand and Heart, Nottingham 26 Jan 14. Ultradyp amber / svart. Lavt mokkafarget skum som etterlater litt lacing. Forsiktig kaffearoma. Smaken er svakt røstet & syrlig. Innslag av bær mot slutten.

Cask at GBBF 2013. Very dark brown colour with an off white head. Fruity malt aroma. Medium sweet, notes of chocolate. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Roasted finish. This is a decent mild.

Leighton (14723) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2013
Cask at GBBF 2012, London. Pours clear brown with a faint, white film head. Fruity aroma, some dark malts, burnt dough. Light to medium sweet flavor with dark toast and dough malts, mild sugars, hints of cocoa. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mellow doughy toast finish. Tasty mild.

Theydon_Bois (13509) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2012
Cask at the Raglan Arms, Rugby - 19/09/12. Dark chestnut brown with ruby hues and a good tan head. Decent lacing ensues and retains well. Toffee, nuts and a little dark fruit and background chocolate on the nose. Taste matches exactly. Lightish body with minimal carbonation and a really pleasant smooth feel. One of the best milds I’ve encountered.

jackl (5916) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Cask @ GBBF ’12. Pours deep brown with no head. The nose is marmite, blackberry jam, coca cola, chocolate. The taste is light cola, some nuts, chocolate and raspberry syrup. Cocoa powder. Light, soft and drinkable. Fairly good.

JorgeLee (1482) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012. Very dark black colour with some brown (cola) lurking in the bottom of the glass. A malty aroma and taste, some milk chocolate notes, smooth slightly oily palate, hint of dryness in finish makes it very moreish. Good mild.

foxo82 (813) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Cask at Dog & Gun, Syston. Very dark brown - almost black. Nice sized head. Lacking aroma. Not much taste - mild malts, lightly bitter with a medium/long finish. Not enough happening but a decent session beer.
