3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF, 2004] A brown beer with a small brown head. The aroma is primarily smoked. The flavor is smoked with notes of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. A great mild.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chestnut brown colour. Not the darkest of milds and certainly not opaque. Rather dull aroma, with hints of dark malt. Sweetish palate, with coffee predominating and a little roast malt in the background. Soft finish. Somehow better than the sum of the parts. Cask (gravity), Catford Beer Festival.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled bright, from the Catford Beer Festival, 2004.
Clear dark brown body. Roasted dark malt flavour. Just another regular mild. Good but not outstanding. Too tell you the truth I’m all mild’ed out. The month of May was a mild onslaught and June as been seriously mild so far as well. Bring on the hoppy summer beers please.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned @ Shipwright Arms, Oare. First half replaced by the landlord after I was part way through with a half from a new cask. The contrast between dull flatness and vibrant flavours may have upped my score a bit much. Molasses & dark fruit aroma. Bittersweet flavour with some nuttiness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask Conditioned at The Plough, Bodicote, Oxon. This is a lightish mild with a dry malt flavour. Probably a little one dimensional with no balancing fruity notes.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 Dec, 2002. Goacher’s is Kent’s longest surviving microbrewery having started up in 1983. They only supply cask ale to pubs around the Maidstone area, though they do like to turn up at various beer festivals. This is a solid, malty Mild with just a hint of bitterness. The flavours are a little too close together for comfort, but it’s a nice try. [2.6]
Nov, 2005. <a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/21/212 Volunteer/Maidstone>Rifle Volunteer, Maidstone A flavoursome mild with a clean body and nice roasted barley tones. Lovely condition. [3.3]
May, 2009. George V, Brompton Lovely refreshing and flavoursome dark ale. Dry roasted barley flavours - toasty notes. Not much hops. Not much fruit. A good drinking beer. [3.7]
