Cask; Regular.
A stronger than expected mild. Very dark, with a full flavour and a slightly bitter aftertaste, this places mild in the forefront of cask-conditioned beers again. It has a fullness, which as its name suggests lets you know it's there. A very frequent medal winner at the Great British Beer Festival.

jackl (6737) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pour’s medium brown with a small tan head. The nose is sweet milk chocolate, some nutty candy bar and blackberry jam. Charred coffee bean roast aromas. The taste is nut bar, red fruits, chocolate-covered trail mix and hazelnut. Light coffee on the finish. A bit thin on the palate, smooth and easy to drink. Overall, not bad stuff.

Cask. Aroma of roasted malts with caramel notes. Pours dark with definite ruby tints. Tan top and strong lacing. Flavours of cookie dough and light fruits with a slightly resinous finish. Flat and one cannot call a 3.8% mild strong mild as there are 6%s out there.

Scopey (11547) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
Cask at Spoons. It pours deep ruby - brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is general sweet malty vibe, toasted malt loaf, dried fruits and cherry cola. The taste is pretty weak....toasty, roasted malts, malt loaf, cola, dark fruit and earth with a short, dry finish. Light body and soft carbonation. No real depth at all. Not offensive per say, just pretty boring...

Towey1989 (1510) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A deep brown to black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of red berries, fruit loaf, some spice, subtle roasted malts and a hint of marzipan. Taste of raisin, prune, red berries, bready malts and spicy hops. Light bodied and a slick texture. A dry, fruity finish. For a 3.8% mild, it’s got decent body and flavour. Highly recommended.
