Cask @ Dirty Dicks, Halifax. Dark reddish-brown with a creamy off-white head. Has a slightly burnt roasted malt aroma and faste, but light in this respect as well as its texture, with elements of marshmallow evident.

On cask at The Hare and Hounds, Bury. Pours like a porter. A smoky mild with hints of chocolate. Quite a bitter start but balances well through the pint.

Cask handpull, The Fat Cat, Sheffield. Now THIS is the kind of mild I like; finely sieved cocoa powder on coal, dry roasted nuts rolled around in a just-emptied pub ashtray, black cherry background, red-edged ruby with a yellow-tan halo. Grilled aubergine aroma, bunsened peanut afters. There’s a lovely soft depth to this you don’t often find. My word. Excellent mild, pushing Thornbridge Exposed as Beer of the Day (So Far)...
