A rich dark mild with bags of character from the lavish use of chocolate malt.

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 (1598) - 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
I’ve 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. I’d have liked less bitterness and more grain. Disappointing from this excellent brewery.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<i>Cask Conditioned at The Pembury Tavern, London</i>
Hazy dark mahogany color. There is a light aroma of burnt malt. The mouthfeel is light, with <i>flat</i> caramel flavor, light chocolate, low bitterness and a light touch of burnt malt and paper. Nothing special.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2008
Cask. At the Pembury Tavern. Slightly hazy mahogany pour with an average frothy off-white head. Sweet, slightly burnt treacle aroma, light cocoa and dry light bitterness. The taste is quite sweet, a little acidity but nothing near sourness, perhaps a hint of saltiness mixed in with the somewhat carbonized nutty/toffee sweetness. Sticky mouthfeel, appropriately light bodied, sweet and malty through and through, but there’s enough bitterness (and "burntness") to balance it out - IMO an excellent mild, and in top shape. (hey, same number’s as Tom!)

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2008
Cask in the Coalheavers Arms. Alround rating: Good amount of chcolate malt, tart fruity character, what i want in a mild basically.

Rune (9239) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2008
Half pint, hand-pulled cask at the very right drinking temperature, Pembury Tavern, Hackney. Dark, ruby-tinged body with a very thin, tan head. Sweet aroma of roasted malts. Malty taste with a coffee bite. Hints of bitter fruits at the ending. Well bodied for its low alcohol level (12.08.2008).

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Cask, Far From The Madding Crowd, Oxford. Dull copper, bit of tan head. Aroma of walnuts, honey and burnt toast. Lightly tart brown malt and oyster flavor, cigarette exhale. Lightish palate. An honest mild, but not much to grab or hold attention.
