A classic example of a beer mild in hops but not in flavour. Sweetness balanced by bitter chocolate malt to produce a rare but much sought after traditional mild.

Dark mild with a slight red glow. Beautiful roasted aroma and flavour whilst remaining smooth.

Cask pour at Jerusalem Tavern, London. Nice rustic-looking pour, a ruddy reddish-brown with a thinnish carbonation. Nose of soft biscuity malts on the nose, a trace of wood, a dollop of hops. Body is nicely full, substantial. A bit more of a bitterness emerges in the taste, but there’s certainly a greater emphasis on nutella-type flavors than anything else. Solid stuff, a winning quaffer.

Pyobon (1314) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2012
(bottle) Clear reddish dark brown with huge off-white head. Aroma of burnt toffee and dark chocolate. Medium body, overly fizzy on pour but moderately carbonated to drink. Flavour profile varies little from start to finish and is dominated by a rather harsh burnt toffee / dark roast malt taste. There are some balancing sweeter notes. Overall rather one dimensional and a bit harsh.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2012
The beer in the glass is very dark brown and ruby red. The flat foam disappears very quickly. It smells fruity, malty, roasty, with plenty of licorice and plum. Starts very strong malty-bitter and roasty, with some chocolate and licorice in the background. In the middle part, the beer is slight watery, it is malty and roasty, bitter and slightly chocolaty. Goes into a very roasty-bitter finish with licorice and bitter dark chocolate.

Cask@the bell inn, walsall. Dark brown in colour with a reddish tint. Small head that laces well. Aroma of chocolate. Taste of roasted Malts, biscuits and chocolate. The palate is a little disappointing, a little too watery. Otherwise a nice traditional mild.

On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours a chestnut colour with a red hue - some head but not proportionate. The nose has treacle and nougat.The taste is similar, probably more going down the praline and biscuits line in fact. The palate is towards full bodied with a big creamy middle section and a bitter but fairly elegant finish. Overall, a nice ale - would have said going towards a bitter though still has most of the qualities expected in a Mild.

EithCubes (5633) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle, green medicine glass by 13SEPT12. Nose is somewhat fruity but extremely medicinal, toffee and caramel with some light roast and astringency, chocolate sticky foretellings. Deep dark blood red body with a blink-and-you-miss-it head. Taste is very dry, just no sweetness here at all, with light roast astringency and a hint of sourness, light bitter chocolate and a hint of wood. Rooty, woodsy. Medium body. This definitely traditional, and reminds me a lot of a light stout. Pleasant and repeatable.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle at home - 19/08/12. Clear mid brown with reddish hues when held to the light and a thin bubbly tan head. Grainy malts on the nose allied to toffee and biscuit. Caramel/biscuit malts in the taste, a little bread, toffee, nuts a good dose of chocolate on the finish and in the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied but too much carbonation for my liking. Decent enought mild - the over carbonation brings it down a good 2 notches for me!

OMG. This stuff is absolutely rancid. on tap at a pub in Selly Oak. Honestly, 1 sip and I was disgusted at how terrible it could be. Tasted of vinegar. Awful, truly awful. You have to buy this to experience the awfulness of it. OMG I want to vom thinking about it. If I didn’t have a rule of 5 for appearance it would get 0.5.
