COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; occasional
Classic mild ale making a welcome return to the bar nearly 10 years after it was last sold in the UK. The beer is rich, dark and packed with subtle sweet, caramel and nutty flavours.

Scopey (6659) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Cask at the fullerís brewery multiple times in 2010. It pours dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, toast, cocoa, soft roasted malt, underlying sweetness and nut. The taste is roasty, toast, light coffee, mild acidity, caramel, berry, light bitterness and cocoa with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A solid mild by any measure if a little unexciting.

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2011
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in May 1994. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark ruby red in colour with a thin creamy tan head. Dusty scraped burnt toast in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Darl malts deliver a sweet maltloaf base with juicy raisins, cherries and soft caramel. Slight prickle of dusty hop resins give a very short bitter aftertaste,along with roast grain notes. Finish has a mellow roast coffee flavour in at the end. An excellent mild and well recommended.

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
Cask handpull at the Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Itís an alright mild. Some roast on the end and some softness in the mouth.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2010
Cask@Akkurat, Stockholm. Very deep ambery colour with small beigeish brown head. Aroma is mildly roasted malts, some slight wooden and fruity notes. Flavour is quite similar and actually being very bitter at the same time. Nice pleasant and easy to drink brew with big bitterness in the finish.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2010
Pre-The Coral pint at The Old Joint Stock, Brum. Burgundy, ruby tints, tan collar. Coffee and smoky malt aroma. Old running shoe filled with crumbled butter biscuit and coal dust; earthy yeast, slight dampness, black cherry. Tastes like itís been in wood. Engaging, want-some-more mild with suggestions of depth. Really good.

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 19, 2010
Cask (Kittyís, Helsinki)
Deep red, healthy spongy head. Lightly roasted sweet malty aroma, a touch caramelly. Simple gentle roasty taste, a touch more burnt than caramelly. Simple refreshing, but almost watery, palate. Finish a little drying, but short of ashy. A simple mild, but a good lunchtime refresher.

Stew41 (1735) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2010
Impressive low ABV style. Bit parts chocolate, fruit and fruit cake. This would be a monster of a beer in an íimperialí version. Maybe the best mid strength I have ever had.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2010
Cask Handpump at the Derby Tup, Chesterfield 22/05/2010 Fruit aroma. Dark coloured smooth on the palate and fruity with a slightly dry lasting malt finish.

Vladivostok (232) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2010
This oneís been around since the year dot. Dark with strong caramel flavours and almost like a íBoysí London Porterí. Shame itís not brewed regularly as I rate it as one of the best dark milds.

omhper (19308) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2010
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Dark mahogany colour. Mild bready raisiny malt aroma. Mid sweet with light but firm body and clean mouthfeel. Slight salty hop bitterness cuts through the thin layer of caramel and chocolate. Coffee-like finish. Good enough well drinkable mild, but a bit clean.
