renffisch (869) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2008
half @ 18th camra battersea. Nice deep oaty nose, and dark red in colour. Tasted almost like porridge, in a good way, but was overly lively and had a very short finish.

FatPhil (11818) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2007
Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004) Rich brown, thin head. Toast, and roasted malts in the aroma. In the mouth it’s very malty, but with no real bitterness either from hops or burnt malts. Good for 3.4%.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2007
Cask, gravity at Cambridge BF ’07. Dark brown. Grainy malt aroma and taste. Unexpectedly bitter. Not outstanding; this somehow just didn’t do the job.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2007
Aroma was malty, chcolate and biscuit having a day, no hops to be found. Taste is similar but very full flavoured for the %, not too roasty also which is a good thing.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2007
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, a brown colour with no real head. A musty malt aroma with hints of chocolate. A medium mouthfeel, a good malty flavour with a little bit of chocolate, and an interesting bitter character all the way through.

Nekronos (3849) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAY 20, 2006
Nice flavour, and creamy foam, I liked it more. BUt it was a little annoying after a while. Although the bitterness is good.

Fin (8699) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2006
Gravity dispense Merton Beer Festival 18th Feb. This is a pretty good example of what a typical English mild is all about. Dark brown, nice clean head, whilst a tad on the light and thin side it has a pleasant malty flavour with a slight bitter and dry finish.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2005

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 Gravity at Red Lion, Snargate. Dark ruby with burnt malt with coffee and chocolate blanaced with some hops to give a dry finish. Lots of flavour for such a low alcohol beer and a mild too boot. Excellent Cask at Catford Beer Festival. Normally one of my favourite milds, this one was a bit thin, tired and acidic. Good burnt malt notes on the nose with bitterness throughout. Quite a short finish

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2005
Cask at Babington Arms (JDW) Derby, Mild Festival. Dark dark brown with a thick white collared head. Roasty notes tempered with a slightly sweet finish but not a lot of fruitiness. OK.
