gegwilson (2119) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Cask in the Cask Corner, Doncaster. Deep chestnut with a cream head. Not getting much aroma, but the flavours are quite strong. Toffee, tea and black treacle in the finish especially. i found the after-taste a little unpleasant, but otherwise OK.

Scopey (9056) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Cask at Craven. It pours deep red with a decent beige head. The nose is bitter-sweet, earth, toasty, jammy, red fruits and sugar. The taste is smooth, toasty, light berry, jammy fruits, raisin, earth, wood and straw with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not much depth, bit smooth and rather drinkable. Solid.

jamesie1857 (1665) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Cask at Sheaf View, Sheffield. Clear chestnut brown with a thin bubbly off-white head. Malt, toffee and a bit of fruit on the nose. Rather bland in the taste, a bit of fruit gets through, but overall a bit shallow. Decent enough mouthfeel, but not enough to make it really good.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Cask @ The King's Head, Leicester. A lovely mild. Ruby red colour with not much of a head. Malty and muted flavours including chocolate and liquorice but mainly mild malty flavour. With slight bitterness. Very drinkable. Again I'll say a lovely mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brigadier (3250) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
On cask at the Wellington (Birmingham)
This pub clip seemed to be the most appealing of the local Black Country options. A sessionable mild with some flavor, it is above average in a category flooded with boring unmemorable alternatives.

Aroma / Appearance - The ruby red base is deep and absorbs virtually all the light. Dark chocolate, walnuts, tea dregs, and malt make this denser feeling than many milds.

Flavor / Palate - Plums and figs give it a dark fruity texture. Chocolate and caramel transition to the bitter finish that lingers lightly like an English drizzle. If I were to have ever run out of choices this one would have made as good a fallback as any of the other fourteen taps.
