HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2007
Sampled at the Medway Beer Festival 2007 - This was a nice, very drinkable little mild. A little stronger than a standard mild and was good for it. Not too sweet, which I liked and hints of hop and a bitter aftertaste. Good.

FatPhil (10091) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2007
Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004) Rich brown, little head. Sweet roasted malts on the nose, rather like the other dozen milds I’d had that day - so this one didn’t stand out as being great. Graininess in the body, maybe biscuityness. Competent mild, not exceptional.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2007
Three Judges. Aroma is biscuity caramalt, completly malty. Taste is similar, a good effort at a ruby mild indeed.

leaparsons (8669) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2006
Cask, Peterborough Fest 06. Dark brown with a beige head. Aromas are earthy and sweet with brown sugar, molasses and caramel. Flavours are sweet and sugary with toasty malts. Some caramel with weetabix. Quite light but tasty.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2006
Gravity, Peterborough Beer Festival 2006. Ruby with no head. Chocolate scent. Very hoppy, quite bitter. Hint of orange in the mouth. Very nice, but spoilt by a flat and watery mouthfeel.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 25, 2006
Cask, Peterborough BF 06. Dark ruby, nearly no head. Bitter malt / hop combination. Sour cream. Carbonated mouthfeel, watery thin taste. Burnt malt, lasting dry bitterness. Hides quite a high strength for a mild well.

imdownthepub (11145) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2009 Cask conditioned at GBBF 06. Dark brown with ruby hue, light head. A good complex fruity malty mild, with a decent body if somewhat short on the finish. As with most beer at GBBF, not in great condition, but the quality can be detected in the dark fruitiness.
Re Rate at The Judges Lodgings, York Sept 09, York. Full, fruity and very tasty

VEry dark, with red spots, that is nice, the foam was good and the taste of malt as just the thing I like in these.
