TheGrandMaster (2334) - 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 (3633) - 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 (7246) - 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
Cask conditioned. Deep brown coloured. Malty and mild. Rather light bodied, but soft.

harrisoni (13144) - 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.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2005
[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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2004
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.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2004
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.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2004
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.
