Decently brewed mild ale with some fruity notes, although not the best looker!

Cask@OHaras, Tampere. Rubyish black colour with a small head. Aroma is ripe dark fruits, mild toffee, zest and mild floral notes. Flavour is similar, but the hops are rather strong. Light Cascadian Dark Ale? Tasty.

Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Off cask at derby beer festival. Incredible amount of flavour for such a low abv, mainly dark, malty flavours. Very nice.

shoulderbroken (2107) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 27, 2011
Cask at Southampton Arms ages ago. Gutted that this has been retired as I drank it before I started rating. So, apologies for the vague rating, it is all done from memory. Was a fantastic beer with much more taste than you might expect for the ABV. Hope they make it again some time.

Beersiveknown (3074) - NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 19, 2011
Bridge Bar,Belfast for Wetherspoon November 2010 beer fest. Dark beer with plenty of roast flavour for such a low ABV, also fairly hoppy so not a true mild.

tombyars (1389) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2011
Sampled this in Tennents Bar, Glasgow in September 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thick creamy buff head that looks solid enough to stand on. Smokey birch wood comes through in the intense and long lasting peaty aroma. Thick double cream mouthfeel and superb lacing. Dark malt complexes ooze rich flavours of bitter chocolate, mocha coffee, black treacle and maple syrup. Sweet and moreish. A slight prickle of hop resins in the short aftertaste but dry chicory note comes through in the nutty hazelnut texture. Robust dry vanilla oak notes are present in the smooth smokey finish. A superb Scottish mild that is packed full of flavour and tastes far stronger than the low abv suggests. Highly recommended.

KnutAlbert (6143) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap, June 2011. Very dark brown, creamy beige head. Lots of flavour for a low ABV. Malty depth with peppery and dry hops to balance. Too bitter for a mild, perhaps, but I am not complaining.

lusikka (6347) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 9, 2011
Cask @ O’Hara’s, Tampere.
Pours a black colour with a very small head on the edges. Aroma of roasted malts, syrup and some grass. Flavour of smoked roasted malts, syrup, dried fruits, flowers and some bitter English hops. Light bodied with a light bitter finish. Easy and tasty.
