Fin (7029) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2009
Cask at the Penny Black, JDW, Bicester, Oxon 24-04-09 Pours a slightly murky reddy brown colour and if Iím being honest this was one of the few ever so slightly negative points. The aroma was smoky and actually quite sausage like I ended up thinking this could be a little cousin of Scherlenka, it was quite obviously not in the full-on smoked sausage category of that great beer, but it was very distinctive in its own right. The taste was more fruity than smoked sausage, Iím not sure that Iíve come across the Cilea hop very much but maybe it was adding something here, there was a light hoppiness. Lovely Mild.

imdownthepub (9634) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2009
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut to ruby with white head. A heavy sort of Mild really, lots of fruit and a decent hop note too. Initially, soft berry fruits, then a citric hop, quite tangy, orange. Is it a mild, not sure about that, certainly not a traditional mild, but really quite enjoyable anyway.

FatPhil (8603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 14, 2009
UPDATED: APR 15, 2009 Cask (Pullman, Helsinki)
Smoky wooly phenolic aroma - elastoplast, sweet too, and a bit gingery. Soft carbonation. Lovely roasty and smoky-to-ashy taste. Full bodied for 3.8% - very tasty. Finish is burnt and ashy, but a touch sweet too. Good quaffer - rich and well-balanced.

downender (5913) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2008
On gravity at Swindon BF 30/10/08. Dark chestnut in colour with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of red fruit, milk chocolate and earthy hops. Flavour was sweetish with caramel, chocolate and a touch of roastiness, leading to a short bitter finish. Good.

[cask at Reading Beer Festival] One off special for CAMRAís Mild May campaign. A decent mild tasting of coffee, chocolate and roasted chestnuts.
