3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Criterion, Leicester. Dark ruby pint approaching blackness with a fat beige collar and lacework aplenty. Citrus-packed aroma with hints of lime jelly and grapefruit. It’s all about the mellow soapy USA-like hop goodness here. Dunked biscuit to finish. Slightly delicious, and way hoppier than your typical mild.

Gravity-fed cask at Barista, Chelmsford. Quite a basic mild, almost black with a tan head. Mild chocolate aroma. Not bad, inoffensive. but afraid there are much better milds about, maybe its aim at the ’younger palate’ making it rather more bland...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 21/04/12.
Dark cola brown with medium off-white head.
Sweet malt nose backed by hops and a little whiff of smoke.
Malts, wood and a little dark fruit in the taste.
Lightish bodied - a little on the watery side even for a mild, but drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at Wellington, Birmingham, 3.8% ABV
The color is very dark, almost black, with creamy head. It has a mild and fresh aroma, light roasted malt and light apple juice, with traces of peach. The mouthfeel is light and smooth; the dark caramel and chocolate flavor is mild, subdued; it has a light fruity and lemony trace too. Balance and elegance. Some roasted malt appears in the final.
Excellent modern take for a Mild.

Draft. Clear dark brown beer. Soft palate. Very well balanced. Just a touch sour which makes it interesting. Malty sour with a little hop. Semi dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Edgar Wallace. Pours a dark, ruby-brown with a slight, beige foam. Charming aroma, definitely some citrusy, resiny hops in there. Nice flavor, a tad soapy but some nice grapefruit, slight bread, juicy oranges. Weird, delicious, but nothing like the milds I know. More like a black IPA I’d say. Light to medium in body with fine to average carbonation. Some nice, understated bitterness in the finish, very citrusy with faint malts and fainter roast. The only thing holding this beer back are the soap notes. Otherwise, great stuff.

Ruby shades to a pitch black body. Tiny, lacing head. Aroma of dark malts. Blended flavour of grainy malts and blood oranges added by a touch of spices. Malt bitterness to the ending. Watching Spain against Netherlands at Mr Foleys Cask Ale House in Leeds, 11.07.2010.
