Cask. At The Old Fountain. Deep hazy ruby-brown with a large-ish mottled beige/tan head. Nutty, dry, slightly syrupy aroma - no alcohol detectable at all. Nice medium-roasty taste, nutty, oily, dry, with a light peatiness. Light, lively mouthfeel, no acidity or heaviness at all, it dances off your palate with a whisper of dry roastiness - this really is a classic light roasty mild, perfect session beer.

<i>Gravity at The Bree Louise, London</i>
Red-mahogany color. A good mix of (light) malt and caramel, lightly fruity too; luckily there is no roasted malt, unfortunately there is a light metallic touch. The final, well bitter, is also a bit harsh. Enjoyable.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2008
Cask, New Oxford, Salford. Exceedingly dark brown colour; virtually black. Dissipating light brown head. Aroma packed with dark malt and coffee. Similar flavour with some sweetness and shades of licorice. Bitter finish. Pretty complex for a 3.4% brew. Meeow.

Cask (Ealing BF2008)
Classic dark mild appearance. Sweet strawberry aroma. A little watery, but not thin. Some esters, well balanced, and a big roasty taste. Finish is burnt, but not astringent.

wheresthepath (1876) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2008
[Cask at the Oakford Social CLub, Reading] Large soft creamy head with a hint of coffee. Beer itself is rather bitter for a mild; also rather watery. Some red fruits come through later. Vary easy drinking, and flavours improved as I drank more - the second pint was nicer than the first.

Cask-conditioned at the Edgar Wallace, London WC2 16/5/08. Near black with a slight, off-white head. Slightly roasted aroma with some bitter chocolate. Light mouth feel with a touch of fruit and coffee, before a slightly sweet finish. Ok.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2014 Cask at The Horseshoe, Hampstead 28 Apr 08. Dark brown/black colored. A small creamy head. Modest aroma of coffee. Dry flavor of coffee. No bitterness. A bit one dimensional.

Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2008
Cask @ Battersea Beer Festival ’08. Pours dark red / brown, thin bubbly head. Aroma is smoky, roasted malts. Taste is earthy, breadlike, dark malts, slight sweetness. Not bad, but could be better.
