viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Cask as the cock. Dark in colour, drinks like a paler beer, hops, lemon, resinous, mango, quite flat, bitter with some mild treacle. Really good lighter options. Bags of taste and also refreshing.

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Cask at the Cock Tavern. It pours deep mahogany brown with a small white head. The nose is earth, dirt, wood, pine needles and a touch of dark fruit. The taste is wood, leather, twiggy, dry cocoa and some decent bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and soft carbonation. A fairly standard mild by all accounts.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2013
Bottle split at JF’s, picked up from the Cock, 30/03/13. Bottle state - Centennial/Columbus/Cascade/Citra. Very dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head that clears to the edge and leaves a thin film. Nose carries dark malts, hoppy note, orange, grapefruit, background chocolate. Taste comprises dark malt, hops, grapefruit, mineral notes, cocoa, orange pith. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, dry in the finish with some light hop bitterness. Great stuff but would scare the bejesus out of many ’trad’ mild drinkers!

Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London 15/02/13. A black beer with a bubbly beige head. A really hoppy and bitter mild. Coffee flavours but very bitter. A hop dominated mild for sure. Very good and flavoursome although some would baulk at this being called a mild.

Bottle, purchased from the fine folks at the Cock Tavern. The pour’s medium brown with a modest off-white head. The aroma’s roasted malts, some cocoa mix. Spruce, grassy hops. Hints of tropical fruits. The taste is roasted malts, wood, some ash. Ink pot bitterness. Chocolate. Slight exotic hoppy flavors (passionfruit, lemon). Smooth finish. Light, zippy mouthfeel. Overall, a nice twist on a mild. Good work.

JorgeLee (1135) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Cask at the Cock Tavern E8. Dark brown beer, foamy head. Hoppy for a mild, solid malt background and earthy bitter hop finish. Only 3.3% and full of flavour, would be so easy to drink all night. Great modern mild.

Svesse (6036) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2013
(Cask at Pembury Tavern, Hackney, London, 22 Nov 2012) Dark brown colour, almost black, with brief foamy beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of pine needles, grapefruit and dark bread. Malty, hoppy taste with chocolate, grapefruit, resin, dark bread and a generous bitterness in the finish. Rather thin body, fairly dry. Nice mild ale with an impressive hop presence.

ladnewton (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Cask at the Cock Tavern, Hackney, London on 16th November 2012. Deep brown with greyish thin head and some lacing. Spicy hoppy aroma. Spices and rich biscuit malt meets intensely sharp and dry hoppiness in-mouth, this cutting dryness lasting well into the finish. Engaging mouthfeel yet also smooth. Medium to light body.

Pigs Ear. Clear dark brown beer, small off white head. Light, fresh and slightly dry palate. This is a hoppy mild! Mild sweet malts dominated by tangy orange marmalade, dried fruits and a little lemon. Well joined up and very drinkable.
