This sweet, dark, ruby red mild, with a biscuit background was produced to wet John and Rachel’s third daughter’s head!

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2006
BCA (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Dec 06). Good roasty aroma - liquorice, dusty chocolate with some sweet malt aromas. Some sweetness on the body but not too much balanced by fruitiness and a hint of roasty flavours in the finish. Quite full but still easy drinking.

Bottle conditioned. Very dark, opaque brown with a slim beige head. Aroma has dark roast malts, caramel and dark fruit. Flavours are coffee, chocolate, some smoke and sweet roasted malts. Smooth and full bodied. I do like a good strong mild.

Chocolate, biscuity, brown malt aroma. Clear brown copper body with low white head that recedes to ring. Biscuity malts leading to a lightly roasty finish. Moderate carbonation to the dry light body. Bottle sampled at RBESG 2005.

jonas (6786) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2005
Roasted caramel, chocolate and berrylike aroma, fizzlesticks. Red chestnut, foamy lacing amber head - pretty. Initially quite fizzy - need to beat the co2 out. Hereafter sweet honeyish, earthy/minerally and roasted coffee notes with a distinct fruity afterplay. Body feels light - probably due to carbonation. Must be the most interresting mild to date :-)

Ungstrup (34360) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2005
A hazy brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty and slightly roasty, while the flavor is plain sweet malty, I find no hints of roast. But still an OK mild.
