3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this in The Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in April 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Dark ruby red in colour with a thin white head. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a strong biscuit base with sweet treacle toffee and raisin fruit. Slight prickle of dusty hop resins noted in the short and dry aftertaste. Finish is malty and sweet with drinking chocolate flavours present. A fantastic session mild and well recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask handpull, SIBA Champions Fest 2011, The Canalhouse, Nottingham. Pale chestnut with copper edges and a slim ivory collar. Very milky mocha and toasted wholemeal aroma, with some jammy hedgerow fruit. Mouth a lovely rounded coffee-meets-raisin type-thing, dusting with chocolate. Some really good, Germanic malt fullness. Can easily see why this is rated so highly.

Aroma is malt and chocolate, auburn, tiny toffee head. Flavour is a beautiful coupling of malt and hops, achieving a fine chocolate happening. Light bodied, very well balanced, bitterness is something to behold. A meal in a glass, which is light yet satisfying. Great Session!

16th April 2010. Clear brown beer. Light semi soft and semi dry palate. Mild tangy fruit - orange and subtle plum underpins a little mild toasty malt. Easy drinking and inoffensive.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask, King’s Head, Carlisle. Missed this at the last JDW fest so was pleased to see it reappear elsewhere. A rich and bitter brew, with loads of roasted tangy malt. Aftertaste is creamy and satisfying and a pleasant clean white head on top. Well bodied, one of the best milds of late.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned at The Grapes, Oxford. Black with tan head, ruby hue. This could well be the best lower ABV mild I have had. Beautifully balanced between a rich fruity malt with a summer fruit character and a good level of hop for a little bite. Wow was all we could say when we first set into our pints. I’m so glad I had this in great condition, fantastic stuff Otter.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hand pulled at the Billiard Hall, West Bromwich. An all round masterpiece of a Mild. Enchanting aroma, pleasing facade and a gob-full of flavour, squeezed inside the low abv. Juicy berry body, with perfectly balanced roasted notes and choc sprinkles. Great stuff.
