Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2011
Cask @ The Blue Bell York. A clear brown colored beer, with a thick foamy light beige head. The aroma of caramel malt and fruits. The taste is gentle bitter with some sweet notes, with caramel. The aftertaste is some sweet, with a little bitter.

dogbomb (1004) - ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2011
Pours a nice dark ruby with a quickly receding mid-brown head. Heady malts with nuts and a mild coffee on the nose. Mild bitter drink (living up to it’s name) but is a little heavy. A light carbonation and the mild bitter finish making this very drinkable.

BeerCast_Rich (1903) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2011
[cask at Melton’s Too, York] Deep brownish red beer, quite a lovely colour. Thin white head. Roasty malt aroma with some chocolate, touch of fruit on the nose. Nutty, slightly toffeeish on the palate, more chocolate. Very well balanced. Very drinkable, touch thin maybe, but to be expected given the style [30102011]

Aroma of nuts, a big rich nutty flavour. Dark red with a disc head. Plenty to it, just not quite to my taste, a good mild.

EdKing (2073) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2011
Cask in Dog and Duck. Pours reddish. Thin White head. Nose is sweet fruity malt. Taste is sweet fruity malt. Feels like it’s been dry hopped which is odd for mild. Dry chalkiness on the tongue. Not blowing me away and not sure about the dryness.

berkshirejohn (4961) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2011
Cask at the Falcon, Claphm Junction. Deep ruby colour with a scummy looking cream head; aroma of deep roasted malts with a hint of chocolate; rich chocolate malt flavour with a floury body; a gentle but deep bitterness balances against the sweet purple fruit, before a long dry finish. An excellent mild.

Leighton (13254) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2011
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Pours a clear, ruby-brown with no head. A bit of roasty malts and dark fruits in the aroma. Very good, balaned flavor. Certainly dark, roasty malts, sweet toffee, brown sugar, mild coffee, some leafy bitterness. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Semi-dry, roasted malt finish with some nice sugars, slight bread, slight leafy bitterness. Solid beer.
