Cask; Regular. Part of the Classic Range.
A rich dark mild with bags of character from the lavish use of chocolate malt.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
Here’s a mild that did not quite reach my expectations. A clear dark brown pour covered by a generously foamy head. Its soft, round and shyly aromatics toasted malts have just an even shier earthy hop touch to enhance their lightness. Stays very watery all throughout, thus quite poundable, but a bit too light, too rooty, too sweet to deserve any second thoughts.

FatPhil (9594) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2007
Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004). Off, drainpour. However, I’m familiar with other Milton beers, and must have this again to give it a re-rate. Felt like it was full of body, and should be shooting for 3.5-3.7 on a good day.

anders37 (17520) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2007
Cask @ The Pembury Tavern, Hackney. Pours a dark amber/brown color with a small off-white head. Fruity malty chocolate aroma with some hints of dark fruit. Sweet malty flavor with some hints of caramel. Sweetish malty finish with some roasted hints leaving you with a bitter finish.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2010 Cask conditioned - handpump - Wig and Pen Northampton. A very dark brown coloured beer with an off white head and lacing. The aroma is thin but there are some dark fruits noticeable. The taste is mild and mellow with some blackberries. Not totally in balance, and a bit lacking in quality for a Milton beer. Score 2.9
Subsequent rating scored 3.6. Average becomes 3.2

camdrinker (11) - ENGLAND - APR 24, 2007
Often found at the Oakdale Arms in Harringay... A great session mild (!), with a complex but pure/clean-cut flavour. The slightly citric/fruity edge keeps it light and very drinkable for a dark beer. Lovely.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: APR 19, 2007 Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2006. A hazy deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of berries, and light notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with quite strong notes of berries, leading to a dry woody finish. The body is no wonder thin.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 cask @ 2nd pembury festival. Deep brown with reasonable tan head. Roasted malts and chocolate in the nose. Taste to match with the addition of stale coffee. Finish of roasted nuts. Not too bad, but it could do with a bit more body.

harrisoni (14109) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2007
Cask handpull at Pembury Tavern, Hackney. Very dark brown colour with lasting tan head. Lovely burnt malt aroma, chocolate is great. Lovely mild roastiness in mouth. Some thinness in mouth (it is only 3.3%), but stunning roasted finish.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2005
Gravity @ 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, UK. 25th May 2005
The festival programme described this quite well: Full bodied beer. Rich chocolate notes with underlying hints of vanilla and liqourice.
