MrBlueSky93 (504) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Can from Aldi. Pours dark brown with a single finger tan coloured head that goes away quickly. Aroma of toasted malts, molasses...Taste of initial malts, then molasses, light caramel, toffee, some bitterness....a little grainy though. Not great.

Pours dark brown/black with quickly disappearing head very simple drink at only 3.2% abv tastes a little weak and lightweight, might be me but just didn’t get nuts anywhere in arms taste or finish.

sarauckelman (306) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Dark brown with thick, brown head that dissipates quickly. Strong, undifferentiated aroma which disappears quickly. Dark, a bit bitter, grainy on the finish. A curious mixture of thick and watery.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Can shared with McTapps offering a black look, some roasted malt and maybe a few nuts in the aroma. Due to its watery taste its a bit passionless and offers not really that what I would call a deep body. Like a golden Pilsner which was filtered to death.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Pours out of the can in a deep dark brown colour with low steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt, roast, torf, leaves, oak, wood, barley and wheat. Mild finish. Nothing special.

futre7 (196) - Taipei, TAIWAN - JUL 11, 2014
Can from 7-11 Taipei. Mellow dark bitter. Nut , malt and bittersweet taste. Not a bad mild at all and at 3.2% can be drunk all day.

SarkyNorthener (3347) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2013
Can. Very dark brown beer with large beige head. Aroma is faint roasted malts. Taste is roasted nuts, some sweetness and a touch of dark malts. Below standard mild.

berkshirejohn (5397) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
440ml can of Thwaites Champion Dark Mild from Morrisons. A really dark reddish brown pour with a billowing cream head; malty aroma; strongly malty taste, well roasted and rather sweet; and a touch of buttery brazil nuts in the finish. A soft and smooth mild.

Rob_D_UK (1295) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2013
Deep dark ruby body with a compact light tan head. Light roasted and powdery chocolate nose. Thin body, but you sort of expect that, mainly malt in the taste and still that powdery perception.
