Ungstrup (29144) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2005
[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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2004
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.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2004
Slight fruity aroma. Amber in colour. Sweet caramel and citrus in flavour. A bit acidic / woody too. Quite dry in finish. Medium bodied, quite a drinkable beer.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 9, 2004
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?

maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 Cask conditioned - handpump - Lord Nelson Brighton. Very little aroma just a very slight hint of chocolate malt. The beer is almost black with an off white head. The taste is dry and clean, but disappointingly thin. Score 3.0
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4, 3.4 and 3.4. Average becomes 3.3

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at The Royal Oak, Borough, London.
Tawny brown colour with no head at all. Bland fusion of malts and tired left over hops. In the style of a Banks mild, not so dark and roasted, if you know what I mean.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2003
[Cask conditioned] Dark brown coloured. Pleasant mild flavour, but slightly thin and watery.

imdownthepub (10007) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Kings Head, Battle. Dark brown with beige head. Thin, tart, watery malt beer. A little smokiness but overall fairly disapointing

3.3
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
pivo (2545) - GERMANY - SEP 7, 2003
GBBF 2003, tap: Slightly toaste nose, dark brown color, low frothy head. Slow start of toasted malt, late arriving light woody dryness. Thin, watery. The over profile is like a wedge - a crescendo of flavors. Very good mild.
