2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mild ale, dark with a red glow, no head. Has a slightly sweet, slightly nutty aroma, less than its name would suggest. The same can be said for its taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Very bubbly deep ruby pour, fairly large frothy tan/light brown lasting head. Fairly roasty aroma, I get more tart raisin than nutty character, but it’s not bad, not too sour, not overly sweet. The taste is ... yeah, pretty sour - like rhubarb or unripe red currants, the sourness quickly overpowers the lightly nutty/chocolate malt - then it all fades away even more quickly - sip by sip: light roast----sour!-- Light, airy, ephemerally acidic mouthfeel, solidly carbonated ---- I didn’t hate it.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dunkelmaziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist mild-malzig, angenehm mild, recht süffig. Man merkt den geringen Alkoholgehalt. Aber durch die angenehm-malzige Note wirkt das Bier trotzdem nicht wässrig. Sehr toll.
Der Nachgeschmack ist röstmalzig-schokoladig, dabei angenehm herb. Röstmalzig-herbe Töne bleiben lange auf der Zunge. --> Für die 3.9% richtig toll!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tesco’s. Poured a cloudy murky dark brown with a thin bubbly tan head. The aroma is weak roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter, nutty and with roasted malt. The bitterness lingers for a while in the finish for a very refreshing beer.

Bottle from morrisons, had at home. Alround rating: Sweet roasty chocolate malts, good mild malt set up, no hops, but a small tartness balances it all out. Tasty.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2010 June 2009 Bottle conditioned from Morrisons. Thwaites Mild (under various names ) is one of their more notable beers, and when served in good condition it is a very decent beer indeed. Being a dark roasty, low hopped beer, it stands up well to pasteurisation - but this is the beer Thwaites have decided to test as a bottle conditioned ale. Perhaps because it is such a robust little ale, that they feel it can hide the flaws better? Anyway, the extra strength works well, and this is a decent quaffable mild. It is soft and creamy, with interesting chocolate notes and touches of vine here and there. Quite likeable. [3.3]
Nov 2009 Bottle conditioned from Morrisons. Cracking beer - very drinkable. Lovely sweetness. Hmmmm. I could drink a fair bit of this stuff. [3.9]

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle, bottle-conditioned, from Morrisons. Deep chocolate brown in colour with an amber tint against the light, and a trace of off-white head; chocolate malt aroma; milky texture with smooth chocolate malts, and hints of toast and treacle; oily, satisfying finish with a gentle bitterness. An excellent mild.

Bottle. Black, opaque. Nice looking. Aroma is rocks & stones, coal and licorice, and nicely acidic chocolate. Has bottled carbonation, but is still soft and silky. Flavors are very nice. Acidic fruits including cherry with rich, 60% dark chocolate.

Bottle conditioned 500ml worth of beer poured into a UK sleeve.
Good looking brew, dark and with a huge foaming tan coloured head.
Mildly coffee and malty molasses in the smell and taste with a soft feel to the overall flavours.
Not had a good mild for a while, this has reminded me how good they can be.

Bottle. Pours slughtly hazy very dark ruby / copper brown with airy light tan head. Very mild aroma of malt, with touches of caramel and yeast. Sweetish flavour of the same, with notes of roast and nuts and faint fruity hints. Nutty Nd slightly roasty aftertaste. Reasonable for the style.
