3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deliziosa ale terrigna, grezza e dolce, con naso di liquerizia, specialmente beverina nonostante la sua caratterizzata mielosità, messa a fuoco da note di cacao soffuse e non molto aggressive. La mia prima mild ale, mica male come inizio.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Reddish black beer with a light head. The aroma is milky chocolate with bitter and roasted notes, and the flavour is quite bitter and roasted. Overall a nice quite bitter and roasted mild, and more stronger tasting than the average mild.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask. Jerusalem Tavern, London. Brown colour with a beige head. Malty and fruity aroma. Malty, but light flavor. Nuts, chocolate/caramel, roastiness, lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Very balanced and very drinkable. In good condition. I really liked it. Too bad mild is an almost non existing beer style in sweden.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (Bree Louise, London)
Sweet gentyly malty aroma. Soft palate, carbonation low. Reasonably roasty, some burnt bitterness. Very pleasant, but not full enough or smooth enough to press all my ’mild’ buttons.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle at the Magpie & Crown, Brentford, 4th Jan 2010 with tashi. Very dark brown with a slightly lacy head. Black malt aroma. Very ’savoury’ taste - salty but not actually meaty. Coats the mouth (in a good way). Very good and it’s rare to find a bottled mild.
