Re-rate Cask handpull at The Wenlock. Distinctive Hophead aroma and thenthis fuller malier chocolatey flavour and full mouthfeel. Really enjoyable mild. Citrusy limey hop and choc? Lovely combo.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Battersea Beer Festival 2005. Dark reddish colour. Roast malty flavour and a hint of caramel. Rather a hoppy mild, some flowery flavour as well. Very nice, just not quite what I expected.

Straigh from the Cask at The Chesterfield Beer Fest on 04/02/05. (in the "buy 4 Milds get one free" offer).
Dark ruby brown colour.
Very fruity this mild. Rich deep flavours. A very full taste for the low %. One of the best Milds of the festival :)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask@Catford Beer festival. What a way to start the beer fest off, with this delicious brew. Toasty dark malts, with a lovely Turkish delight, lychee flavour throughout. Hoppy for a mild, flowery and aromatic, in fact doesn’t really taste like any other mild i’ve had, only 3.8%ABV which is a shock, because theres quite a decent amount of body and flavour.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Catford Fest. Gravity. Apple and pale malt aroma. Turkish delight rose water and lychee flavours. Stunning! Fragrant, aromatic hops. A wild mild!
Duff now joins the posse and the drinking rate will increase.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish colour - not that dark. Distinctly floral aroma, reminiscent of rose water. Not exactly what you’d expect in a mild, but very appealing. Supple roast malt flavour, with some sweetness. Smooth texture. Finishes quite dry and bitter. Rather hoppy for a mild. Not typical, but impressive. Cask (gravity), Catford Beer Festival.
