Very smooth and dark. Full bodied chocolate malt flavour with a roast like aroma. My favourite Mild , wish it were more widely available.

Minipin (’bag in box’), from brewery. Had an 18 pint minipin of this over Christmas. Just glorious. Beautifully dark, though not the jet black I like my mild to be. Great flavour, not overly rich, but plenty of chocolate maltiness coming through. Eminently drinkable and tastes much stronger then the 3.2% a.b.v. An abolute classic English mild and definitely worthy of its CBOB prize.

Cask at the White Horse, for "Still here Mr. Selle?" session, at their Old Ale Festival, 28th Nov 08. Mid brown with a superb complex malt aroma. The low strength gives the flavours room to breathe and flourish. Coffee & caramel malt in abundance and a lovely smooth finish. I could instantly see why it landed the Supreme Champion Beer of Britain award in 2007.

[cask at the North Wiltshire Beer Festival]. Sweet, smokey, full of deep roasted malt flavours. The best mild I’ve yet had, and for me the beer of the festival.

Proper old school mild. Dark to pour, aroma of chocolate malt, reasonalbe mouthfeel for the strength and flavour of watery roasted chocolate malt and a dry bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2010 Cask at GBBF 2005
Another of the very good milds at the festival. Dark brown in colour with some nice caramel malt flavours, nice hop finish. I will certainly have this again if I see it. 737313 3.3/5.0 Re-rate The Guildhall, Folkestone cask conditioned handpull. Wow what an amazing assortment of deep rich fruit flavours, choc and coffee malt and a slight sting on the finish. The condition was perfect too. A superb mild

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - Swan & Rushes, Leicester. A dark, dark brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The aroma is biscuity, wheaty, toasty and bready. The taste is also toasty with some crunchy malt flavours. Beautifully balanced, very tasty and so full flavoured. You can see why, on song, this beer is an award winner.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gravity, Oxford CAMRA beer festival. Chesnut brown, rough tan head. Lovely toasted aroma, nutty coffee and caramel. Soft toasted sugar roast, lovely deep caramel flavor. Soft, and impressively mouthfilling for 3.2%. Lingering husk note and a touch of raw earth. My first beer of the festival, and a fine start.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask Conditioned at The Church Inn, Ludlow. Dark brown with thin head. As milds go this is the archetypal dark sweet mild, loads of fruitiness in a medium bodied maltiness. Refreshing from start to finish, a very nice beer indeed.
