greenmanalishi (468) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2012
Nutty, toasty flavours and a bit sweeter than many milds. Flavoursome brew with more complexity than your bog-standard milds.

berkshirejohn (4454) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2008
Cask at the Land of Liberty, Peace & Plenty, Heronsgate. Perfectly conditioned, bright ruby red with a tan head, a pleasure to look at on a sunny afternoon sitting in the garden of this wonderful pub. Rich malt aromas; fruity and rich in the mouth, with lots of roasted malt flavour; finish is dry and nutty. An excellent mild, proof that a good beer can be brewed at 3.7%.

Fukito (735) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 23, 2007
Cask at The Wenlock, october 07. Dark ruby/ brown color with a medium, almost yellow creamy head. Toasted malts, roasted peanuts aroma but restrained with some not nice sulphurous notes. Crystal malts flavor, mild and comforting. Light to medium palate, a little astringent finnish. Nice, drinkable mild.

A Mes rate: Cask at the Wenlock
Nice red brown with a good tan head. Decent dusty and malty aroma with slight chocolate and coffee. Sweet fruity flavour, light coffee and a hint of sourness that is more pronounced in the finish.
