Keg at the Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street. A deep purple brown pour with a nitro-style creamy beige head; some chocolate malt on the nose; smooth and creamy in the mouth with a biscuity taste and some red fruit; and a dry, lactic, finish. A fairly traditional, drinkable, mild.

Keg at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. Short review at social. Dark ruby with a big creamy head (looks nitro-kegged). Aroma - very ’mild’, slightly ashy. Body is light, touch of carbonation. Taste is thin, malty, ashy.

Pint at the white horse Soho. Probably the worst pint of the evening. Caramel toffee apple aroma Some of the same in the flavour. Light body.

On tap @ the Cramond Inn. Pours opaque black with just a hint of chestnut towards the bottom of the glass. The nose has soggy bean flakes. The taste has mild chocolate and nuts. The palate is surprisingly medium bodied and creamy in texture despite the low alcohol level. Overall a lovely mild with a surprisingly good body.

Disappointing mild which is crisp, but only as its lacks character and flavour. Keeps a nice head though.

Keg (Wortley Almshouses, Peterborough)
Dark, huge keggy beige head. Slightly sour aroma. Dark malts. Taste is more caramelly, but has an OK roast. Watery, but refreshing. Milky in places. A bit like some breakfast cereal. A bit chemical in places. Ice cream?

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 15, 2012
Cask at The Cramond Inn. Dark Brown with a cream head. Thin and basically pointless. A driving beer. Some people like this sort of thing apparently. I concur with Mikey. Tastes like a watered down bitter.

A thin brown beer. Very little aroma and taste. Tastes like a watered down bitter.

half a pint. Creamy odd white head. Clear deep dark pour. Nice mild!
