Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2008
Cask/gravity at Battersea Beer Festival 6 Feb 08. Dark brown / mahogany colored. A tiny layer-head. Modest aroma with traces of raisins. Watery flavor with an evolving taste of prunes. No bitterness.

Nuffield (3658) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2003
Disappointingly mild. As the publican said, perhaps this is true to a vision of "something you can drink on a hot summer's day" [for an English palate on a "hot" day of 75F] but far too dull for its deep ruby red appearance. At least there is nothing offensive here. (on tap, Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford)

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 12, 2006
Nice in colour, completely dark, but the milds are good in that. It was a little strng in flavaour, but very refreshing.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2007
Gravity Cask @ Battersea Beer Festival. Mid brown. Thin slightly chocolatey flavours with light fruity berries. Uninspiring mild with a damp clothy finish.

Rich chestnut colour, adorned with a fluffy beige crown. Vanilla and spiced aroma complimented by a soft malt flavour. Easily quaffed.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2007
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, light brown with no head. A very nice chocolate malt aroma. A light mouthfeel, though a little watery, but with a light malt flavour. Easy to drink, but maybe a bit bland.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2004
Cask-conditioned at the Great British Beer Festival, Kensington Olympia, London. (Thursday Session). Very thin, watery malt. Nothing to this at all.

haddon90 (1429) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Cask. Dark brown with a cream colored head. Light coffee aroma with some malt. Bland flavor. Some malt and coffee. Nothing really exciting to write about this one.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2008
Cask @ Wenlock Arms with Magic Dave6 and Mes. Dark brown colored with a slim off white head. Light but very very drinkable. Chocolate and coffe aroma and flavour. Caramel and mal hints in the taste too. Very enjoyable.
