DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
Cask Handpump at the Kings Head, Huddersfield 15/08/2009 Some fruit and hop aromas. Beige head. Dark red coloured fruity and a little sour with a slight acidic taste. A hint of bitterness in a crisp and dry finish.

berkshirejohn (4378) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2009
Cask at the Live and Let Live, Cambridge. Tar brown in colour with a loose beige head and a striking cherry red colour when held to the light; aroma of roasted malt with smoke and tar mingling; dry in the mouth with a solid chocolate malt body and a light peppery bitterness; then a touch of caramel to finish. Excellent - if only all milds were as good as this.

ladnewton (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2009
Handpulled cask at the Pembury Tavern on 15th July 2009, during beer festival. Deep brown-black with a small cream-coloured head. For such a low strength this mild was bursting with flavour. A sharp scent of roasted malts are in the forefront with strong coffee and chocolate notes abounding. A little sophisticated smoke too. First pint at the festival, and absolutely delicious.

wheresthepath (1521) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2008
[Gravity cask at Milton Keynes beerfest] Vicious foretaste of plums and coffee mellows into the usual dry, toasty mild, but the sour overtones of the plum keep hanging around. Interesting, and good depth of flavour, but ultimately it didn’t work very well for me.

leaparsons (7923) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2008
Cask, Nottingham Fest 08. Dark brown with a small head. Aromas are weetabix and chocolate malts with light roast coffee. Flavours are malty with chocolate and coffee. Sweet, light, yet tasty. A simple decent mild.

fonefan (34188) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2008
Cask gravity @ Reading Beer Festival 2008.
Clear medium red brown color with a average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, burnt, coffee. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter (malt burnt bitter) with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. (020508)

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2008
Cask at the Globe, Nottingham. I found this to be a pleasant but unremarkable mild with all the usual sort of aromas and flavours – roast, coffee, etc. It was a textbook case, but without any flair to make it stand out.
