Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Very dark red brown. Small beige head. Sweet fruity aroma, near grape. Taste is that odd combination: undistinguished but delicious. Sweetness blends with leathery and citric notes. Mid bitter finish. Excellent.

Cask at the Wandsworth Common Spring BF, London. Pours clear, golden-brown with a foamy, bubbly white head. Toast, dough and light toffee aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, lightly earthy with toasty toffee and faint, leathery fruit. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Decent bitter bite to finish with toasty wood, dirt and leaves, toasty toffee, hints of honey and dark sugar. Very good. What I expect of a mild.

Aroma was complex for such a small beer, tart berry malts, loads of blueberry and a bit of cherry, pineapples comes through at times also. Taste is similar in richness and complexity. Good hop dryness in the finish makes this a great session ale.

Classic dark mild appearance. Twigs and leaves in the aroma, also big fruity esters too. Soft palate. Nice aromatic hoppy finish - long. Big fruity taste - apple, and has some creamy rice pudding feel.

Cask handpull at The Berry, Walmer. Very dark brown, lasting thin beige head. Very decent mild. Yes, good malts, not overly roasty, just a good blend of malts. And it is mild and malty and weell put together. Good.
