FatPhil (9372) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2007
Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004) Off, drainpour. Sweet and fruity, seemed full of body, the kind of mild I like a lot - could be shooting for ~3.5 perhaps. Must re-rate, as this had soured.

maeib (8729) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - The Bell Nottingham. A black coloured mild with a tight off-white head which has a little nitro appearance. The aroma is fairly fruity and there is noticeable hop. The taste has roasted malt but also more hoppy bitterness than expected. A little coffee also. A very nice mild.
