2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.
