johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Cask at the The Littleton Arms in Penkridge. Black with a slightly smoked maltiness. Plenty of impact considering its relatively low strength. I felt that it was more like a stout than a mild.

Cask @ Angleterre. Near black, brown head. Smooth stuff! Cocoa, roasted malt, vanilla cookies and coffee in aroma. Wow! Taste then; roastedness, cocoa, hops, licorice. Coffee lingering in the dry finish. Spot on! No doubt the best mild ale I have ever had!

Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, burnt malts, chocolate, coffee, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness, chocolate and bitterness. A nice tasty and balanced brew.

Roast malt nose, some fruit, light bodied and easy drinking. Body is a little thin but its a good low ABV session beer.

VastActiv (2175) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Cask at Black Door, Helsinki. Colour is almost black with slightly brownish white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, dryness and roasted malts. Sorry but mild ales as real ale are quite useless and watery but this one is better than average.

Pours dark brown, almost black with a thick bubbly head. Aroma of roastiness, hints of berries, fruits and grassy hoppiness. Taste is smooth, watery and light bodied with a touch of roastiness, nutty notes, berries and hops. Finish is bitter, dry and roasty with some mild hoppiness. Okay, quite smooth and slightly watery mild ale
