gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2010
Instantly recognisable as a mild, lightly malty and roasted oats with a decent balance of fruity and floral hops to balance it out. Easy drinking, smooth pint with a good full mouthfeel for the abv. Good.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2010
Cask at the Bowl Inn, Almondsbury. Very dark red/brown, minimal off white head. Sweet fruit and roasty aroma. Pretty light mouthfeel, a touch watery, but this is unsurprising at 3.2%. Pleasant roast/smoky flavour, with a hint of hops. Very easy to drink.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2010
Pours out a very deep dark red/brown with a light white lacing. Cracking little nose actually lots going on, classic choco & coffee aromas mingled with a fruity grapefruit undertone. The body is nice & rounded, light of course but a good body for such a low abv, the flavours are fresh & clean, fruity, with light malty yeast & a lovely persistant coffee, dry finish, but a nice juicy dryness. A great light fresh beer but with full flavour too, got to be pleased with that finish. Its difficult to score this as its obviously a super little beer for the strength but its not going to be challenging any of the big powerful complex uber beers out there, so I think a solid 3.5 shows how well I think this has been made.

[Cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Edge can be a rare specimen to find on cask, managed to get a half at a BrewDog tasting event hosted by Cloisters. Very dark brown appearance with some redness overall, aromas of coffee and malt. As a mild or 60/-, it has a pretty refreshing lightness combined with a healthy thwack of espresso. There’s some fruit in there too, but it all takes a back seat to the coffee. As a non-fan of the marching bean, personally I’m scoring it down – but I can see why many rate it highly [21092010]

On tap at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico. Dark brown with a nice, beige head. Roasted malts and dark fruit-crisp finish. Flat. Quite nice mild,which is surprisingly dry.

Leighton (10987) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Cask at Cleveland Arms. Pours a dark brown, opaque, with a thin, off-white head. Strong dark malt aroma with roast, chocolate, light hops. Flavor has a modest sweetness, with strong, roasty malt character. Some char and tobacco. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Leaves heavy lacing. Dry roast finish, which lingers. Excellent beer, especially given the low ABV.

sm89walt (1756) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2010
Cask, 3.2% - Cask Pub & Kitchen, London. Poured with a lasting, dense & creamy beige head and a deep yet clear reddy brown body. Dry, roasty aromas, chocolate, coffee, a touch of dried/dark fruit & tobacco in there and a meaty smokiness. Not quite as on the same level on the tongue but lots of dry roasty, coffee, smokey malty goodness to go around. Drinks bloody well really. Soft, low carbonation with a lingering dry finish and light-medium body.

douglas88 (6021) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2010
On cask in Edinburgh. Pours a very dark almost totally black color with a huge creamy beige head. The aroma was toasted malts, mocha coffee, metallic heavily roasted malts as well pushing through. The flavor was excellent; smooth and rich, creamy coffee and roasted malts, metal, nutty. Such a great cask body. 2.7%! Awesome.

Pint, the Queen’s Head, Chelmsford, many thanks to Bob in London and congratulations on your 50th! Roasted malt aroma, chocolate, excellent lacing, cream, roasted malts, awesome bitterness, citric hpos, dark -opaque appearance which reds out at the bottom, utterly awesome mild. THIS IS THE BEST MILD I’VE EVER HAD! Finish is roasted and medium. Carbonation is low. Slightly murky but amazing. Thnaks

Cask at the CASK Pub & Kitchen on 1 Sept 2010. Dark ruby with creamy beige lacing head. Fruity, berries aroma. Fruit scents continue in main kick before a bolt of hop lightning strikes the back of the mout. Then piercing hop leads a bitter finish. Light to smooth mouthfeel. Very good indeed.
