Rune (11355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2014
From cask, nicely served in a mug at The Cock Tavern, half pint. Filmy white layer, spotty lacing, clear mahogany coloured body. Dark fruity nose. Roasted malty flavours with dark caramel and coffee. Dark malty bitter ending. Far from diluted. Well made considering the low abv (Hackney, London 13.07.2014).

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 (12711) - 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 (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, 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.
