The mirror image of Rock Bitter, smooth and dark with a biscuity flavour. Back in the pre-war days this beer would have been on sale in virtually every one of the brewery's jug and bottle counters throughout the county and beyond.

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.

harrisoni (17280) - 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.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2008
Cask at the Bell, Nottingham. Dark brown beer with fruit aroma. It is rich and full flavoured, mainly sweet malt but with surprising hop for a mild. Deserved the silver award at GBBF. Very moreish.

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.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
The Trent Bridge, Nottingham, 11/04/14. Dark ruby topped with beige. Dunkelweizen-like plum and spiced apple on nose; chocolate, citrus hop. Really decent with contemporary citrus and blackcurrant undercurrents leaning towards bipartisan (black IPA!). Some coffee grounds; slight tang of sour. Really good.

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2003
Gravity, Maidstone Beer Festival. Nottingham is a brewpub founded in 2001 and already gaining something of a reputation. If this mild is anything to go by, then the reputation is well deserved. Pine, eucalyptus, mint sauce and soy sauce are among the notes found in the aroma - this is very much one to keep sniffing. Mouthfeel is creamy and coats the mouth but remains light and refreshing. Flavours are very outstanding for a mild but also rather muddled, but it's definitely dark tasting and finishes pleasantly with pine notes.

Cask@whippet Inn micropub. Lichfield. Black beer medium tan head good lacing. Aroma light roasted malts. Taste is chocolate, some coffee, roast malts and nutty. Creamy palate. Very good especially for such a low ABV.

The_Osprey (6348) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
August 2016 - Cask handpull at GBBF 2016, as ’Nottingham Rock Mild’. Opaque black, foamy brown head. Aroma is molasses and chocolate. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is chocolate, soft toffee malts, milky fudge. Lovely balance and flavours. Delivers a lot at the ABV. A very good mild indeed. (3.7)

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.
