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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
