BeerNinjaUK (243) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2016
500ml bottle from local store. Pours deep red-brown with light grey fluffy head. Aroma complex with tea, earthiness, some herbiness, liquorice, orange hints, cocoa and cereals. Watery on the palate but refreshing for it.

Fin (9596) - 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 I’m 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, I’m not sure that I’ve come across the Cilea hop very much but maybe it was adding something here, there was a light hoppiness. Lovely Mild.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.
An inviting russet brown colour with a good beige head. Decent bready malt aroma with a pronounced nutty character and a good hit of bitter hoppage. Excellent balance of earthy malt and bitter floral hops in the mouth. Good nutty finish with a good hit of roast late on. Superb drinkability, equally good balance. Too hoppy to be a mild for sure. Whatever, it’s a lovely beer.

imdownthepub (13234) - 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 (13867) - 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.

tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2012
Tasted this in The Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in April 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Dark copper red in colour with a thin creamy white head. Sweet dark berry fruit in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts deliver a fiery digestive biscuit base with overipe redcurrants, blackberries and raspberries. An interesting floral hop prickle with spicy flavours in the brief bitter aftertaste which compliment the fruity malt well. Finish is malty with juicy winegums present. A strange mild this but highly recommended.

Iznogud (2505) - CROATIA - JAN 1, 2015
