Cask pour at the Stockbridge Tap (Edinburgh). Dark mahogany body, clear with an excellent light tan head that leaves a full coat on the glass. Mild flavor (of course); mildly bitter; leans towards hoppy for style. Light body with good carbonation.

Cask at the Fox & Hounds, Reading. Brown with a loose cream head. Roasted malts with a little sour fruit and cocoa. It’s just OK.

ManVsBeer (8767) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Cask @ Victorian Craft Beer Café, Halifax. Darker golden-brown, clear, with a glow and a frothy head. Includes a mix of dark malts and roasted malts that are stated enough in this relatively easy drinking mild. There’s a very mild nuttiness in here too.

allmyvinyl (9544) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2016

McNeillR (2232) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Ruby brown hazy and a slim tannish head with soft lacing. Nose is a little peppery and oaty initially, but then then rich fruity roast jets in with a tired brown sugar flatness. Initial taste is a roast with dogmition, lean and sweet with a decent stepover of earthy bitterness. Carbonation is slim and mouthfeel a touch thin. However finishes strong and sweet, charred veg and soft roast linger. A striking mild, not even for the "dark mild" deScription.

Cask, Marble Arch, Manchester

jamestulloch (3493) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2016
Cask at The Stockbridge Tap. Clear amber/ruby body with a dense beige head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, earth and plum. Flavour of berries, weak filter coffee and a tangy, bitter finish. Thin body with a smooth, creamy texture. Subtle and drinkable - exactly as a Mild should be.

AshtonMcCobb (5372) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2016
On cask at the Stockbridge Tap. Appearance - close to opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - sweet malt and light chocolate. Some toffee. Taste - more of the same. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - one of the best milds I’ve had.

Cask-conditioned at the Famous Royal Naval Volunteer, Bristol 22/12/2015. Slightly hazy copper in colour, with a decent, off-white, head. Sweetish malts, some red berry fruits, a slight toastiness and gentle finish. Good.
