Bottled. Deep ambery brown colour with some ruby notes too. The head is mediumsized and off-white, leaving some lace. Aroma is chocolate, mild toasted malts, some ripe fruits and mild resiny notes. Flavour is chocolate, some sweet dark malts, mild toasted notes as well as ripe fruits and some berries. Highly drinkable mild.

Cask (gravity) @ 29th Pigs Ear Beer and Cider Festival 2012, at The Round Chapel in Hackney, London, England.

Clear dark brown color with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, chocolate malt. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average to long duration, sugary dark roasted malt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20121204]

Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2013
Cask at the Pigs Ear BF 2012, London. Pours clear, dark red-brown with a light, tan cream cap. Dark, toasty brown bread in the aroma. Light sweet flavor with wimpy cocoa, faint dry and burnt wood. Light in body and fine of carbonation. Some dry, darkly toasted malts to finish, little else. Very drinkable stuff, though as is the case with so many milds it fails to bring much excitement to the fore.

Soft head, nose of roasted malts and nuts. Aroma which hits you first is a kind of ham taste, propelled by some lively CO2 and changing quickly into its soft roasted malt and dusty bit barnyard aromas. Interesting ruby red brown colour and a soft head. As indicated, at first instance umami but then senses of bitter sweetness. Slick on lips, and tongue with sparkling moments. Roasted malts and medium-full body prevail on the palate. Finish is ok. Surprised by the full flavour of this mild, pretty enjoyable!

The first beer in a ’Dunham Massey 4’ tasting evening held by me, for me in mid-April 2011. Brown 500ml bottle, best before Aug 2011: this is a bottle conditioned beer. Deep ruby red in colour, looks darker until you hold it up to a strong light source. An off-white head of tight bubbles sat on top. The aroma was semi-smokey, burnt malts and roasted barley notes. The taste wasn’t smokey at all, some burnt malt molasses maybe, but nothing to compare with the smell. I thought it a little thin and light bodied, even for a 3.85ABV Mild and if I’d drank it blindfolded it’d have said it was a light Mild, even with the smoked smells. The website say’s it is "based on the tradional North Western milds of old." Not too sure about that, but it lacked that little bit of something for me.

Bottle 500ml - Deep brown colour. Malt and coffee in the aroma. Quite a full flavour with roasted malts dominating. Bittersweet and quite light. Perhaps a bit on the thin side but a very good Mild.

Cask conditioned handpump Market Porter Borough Market. An almost opaque beer with an off-white head. The aroma is fairly thin with just a little fruit and a touch of sourness. Really good in the mouth though with smoky malts and berry fruits. Pretty dry. A moreish tasty mild.
