jamesie1857 (1330) - 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 (513) - 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

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.

jjsint (627) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2013
Odd tasting dark mild. Sweetish chocolate aroma. Notes as diverse as pork scratchings to mouthwash and a couple of other things besides. Not to my taste, but we can’t like everything can we?

Cask@lychgatetavern, wolverhampton. Ruby colour large creamy head with decent lacing. Aroma is mild liquorice. Taste is lots of malts, caramel and toffee with a touch of liquorice. A decent mild very easy to drink and smooth on the palate.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2012
Hand-pulled pint in ’The Wellington’ Birmingham (West Midlands) on 5th Dec 2012. Dark ruby in colour with a good solid tan head. Malts rule the brew in every aspect with the hops just about giving the beer a semi-bitter finish as the mouth dries. Smooth feel to the overall tasting, nothing strong or robust in the flavours: just hints of better things. All the regular Mild tastes are here but only just, bits of chocolate, coffee and liquorice blend together without really hitting the high notes. Easy to drink and pleasant enough, but lacking a real punch.

TheJestersBeer (2032) - SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2012
Cask. Pours a deep mahogany brown, with a beige head. Dry, light to medium bodied, medium bitterness, creamy CO2. Malty taste, caramel, chocolate, ash, toffee, hops, faint orange. Well made, very easy drinking. (2012-11-23)

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 07/09/12. Clear chestnut brown with a thin bubbly off-white head. Malt, barley, grain, toffee and a little background fruit on the nose. Taste follows, fairly bland even for a mild. Medium body with moderate carbonation, Creamy finish with a little bitterness. Looks and feels very good, just the all important inbetween bits let it down a little, but overall a decent enough mild.
