ianwelby (949) - SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2016
Dark beer with a beige, bubbly head. Mine looked a bit flat and the head disappears but that’s a bit misleading. Malty chocolate dominates the smell and the flavour. Feels a bit watery both in the mouth and the finish but it’s decent enough.

Sigmund (6231) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2015
Cask pint at the Leyton Orient Supporters Club. Very dark ruby color, nearly black. Small beige head. Moderate malty aroma. Very nice malty / slightly roasty and fruity flavour, hints of mild coffee, chocolate and blackcurrants. A pleasant mild.

Erzengel (7124) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
On cask in London. Smooth malty beginning with hints of smoky roast. Nuts, roasted caramel. Nice and deep dark. Refreshing but still easy to drink with depth. Round and fresh. Nice!

gegwilson (2731) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Cask in a pub in Bury St Edmunds. Mahogany with a very light rim of white bubbles. The taste is mild blackcurrant and liquorice with some tobacco in the finish and a little metal. Thin. Poor. Maybe something was wrong here given other rating. Will try again if I come across it.

Mr_Pink_152 (3112) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Tried at the Lincoln Beer festival 2015. Ruby brown colour with a small off white head. Aroma is fruity with malt and caramel. The taste follows what you’d expect from the aroma. Slightly sweet finish.

MrTipple (2836) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Aroma: some caramel and roasted malts, hints of bread. Appearance: dark clear brown, no head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: average-long dry-ish finish, a bit watery, bitters coming up, but not too intense. Overall: not bad for a Mild, quite a complex palate. Pint at Newman Street Tavern, London.
