FatPhil (13867) - 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 (8749) - 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.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2007
Cask @ The Wenlock. Dark brown with an off white head. Nose of blackcurrant, tobacco, yeast and hops. Taste is much the same with a dry bitter hop finish.

imdownthepub (13226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Merchants Inn, Rugby, Warks. Dark brown with cream head. Sweet fruity mild, quite plummy with a touch of rich malty notes and nuts. There is a hop character giving an odd bitterness. Overall a pretty good mild.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2007
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark reddish brown with a small off white head. Yeasty, sweet, floral aroma with a lovely old-fashioned mustiness in the background. Taste is rich with berry fruits: clean,fresh and delightful. A little back of the throat bitterness. This is as good as a mild gets.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at the Pembury Tavern. Hmm, nice balance of crisp dry hops and lovely sweet malt. Blackberry and prunes in the nose. Freakishly tastes of mac and cheese. Honest guv! Quite sweet until the very bitter finish. A decent mild.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2005
Cask gravity at Notts BF 05. Black beer with no head. Quite a hoppy nose for a mild. Good in mouth with choc/coffee kicking in. Good enough mild.
