1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Cask, handpump @ the Royal Oak, Southwark.
Firstly, tallboy half-pint glasses should be outlawed in the U.K. as they never produce attractive looking beers. This one settled a bright cola brown with the head dying off before the barman could place it onto the bar. No aroma apart from a feint waft of ’dust-bunnies’. Could have been the pub. In the mouth it is thin and lifeless resembling water streamed through alkalined copper pipes more than a clean mild. It’s relatively tannic in the back and on the sides of the tongue. A light showing of added caramel upfront and the mid-palate is dusty with little malt definition, but the malt is there. Finish dries out and shows little length, little bitterness and virtually no definable flavour. Gives a good impression as to the reason Mild’s fell out of favour with the average British beer drinker. Disappointingly bland.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pint pulled at The Lord Nelson in Brighton, a ruby dark colour with no head. A malty carmal aroma. Quite tangy with a bitter aftertaste. Roasted caramal flavours. Disappointing.

Dark amber color to brown, thin persistent head. Light aroma, malt and wood. Very round mouthfeel for a Mild, malty, with a fair amount of caramel, and a very balanced final. Good.

[Cask at Royal Oak, London] A deep red beer with a fine small light brown head. The aroma is slightly sweet malty. The flavor is malty with notes of caramel and roasted bread, but the body is thin.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mid ruby brown colour - not very dark. A touch of sulphur in the aroma. A quite woody and dry mild, with some vague sweet fruitiness and an acidic edge. Very thin mouthfeel. A bit insipid, with not much going on. Not a great mild. Cask (handpump) at the Royal Oak, Borough.

cask: had a few milds in the UK last trip and decided not really my bag....mostly mild means meaninless flavor. very weak and thin....almost all are in the 3% range. guess this is the point. but if your going to drink beer and you have a choice. why would you drink a mild?
