[Gravity cask at Chippenham Beer Festival] Brown with a negligible head & a light sparkle. A bit roasty, a bit malty, a bit chewy, a bit of port, a bit of gravy. Definitely dry though. OK.

Cask at the Pembury. Had this as a side by side with the Mammon. Pours a cola colour, with a small beige head. Aromas of light roasted malt and toffee. Taste mostly sweet toffee and light roasted malt, with a touch of orange rind and chocolate.

imdownthepub (10581) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Chestnut with white head. Rich, malty, fruity mild, dark chocolate notes with a fireside, coal dust hint. A plummy fruitiness emerges. Probably a little too much going on for a mild but very pleasant in itís own right.

Dark, roasts without caramel, good hop rate and lasting finish. Drinks beyond its strength, a rewarding top class mild.

Cask@Pembury Tavern. Deep ambery colour, small beige head. Aroma is mild caramel malts, some oak, mild syrupy sweetness and some other sweet stuff. Flavour is dark dry fruits, mild roast, some wood and yeast. Quite pleasantly balanced Also some nuttyness as it warms up.

ladnewton (1466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2009
Cask at the Pembury Tavern on 8th July 2009. A dark ruby mild with an initially fair - but soon collapsing - white frothy head giving some initial lacing. Very flavoursome - the cask was particularly well-kept. Delicious roast barley and de-luxe malts abound in a mild which is particularly flavoursome for its low ABV.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2009
Iíve missed this beer on a couple of occasions at the local pub and at Festivals, so I was pleased to see it on cask at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark red brown with a small off white head. Ashy malt aroma with a hint of yacht varnish. Odd sweet painty taste with autumnal leaves and woodsmoke. A little sourness and a dryness which gradually intensified. Not a typical mild. Iíd have liked less bitterness and more grain. Disappointing from this excellent brewery.
