Probably what a muddy bog in the Land of Chocolate would taste like. Supping from all the rainwater between the Malteser-cobbled roads. Noice.

downender (7841) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2012
On gravity at the Volunteer, Bristol. Dark brown with a touch of red and tight, off-white head. Sweet, caramel aroma with a touch of fruit. Flavour was very sweet, with a syrupy edge and gently bitter finish. Aside from the caramel, there wasn’t much to this beer. Disappointing.

Cask conditioned handpump Town Hall Tavern Leeds 14/05/12. A black beer with a whitish head and lacing. Pretty thin. Caramel notes but little else. I suppose it’s the epitome of an old fashioned dark mild, but I’d appreciate more flavour.

May be a harsh rating but it wasn’t a memorable pint. It was fairly rich and had a dark brown/ruby look to it. Had it as a half on the TransPennine Ale Trail in the West Riding Refreshment Rooms.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Cask. Aroma is fine chocolate and malt, mahogany, small toffee head, plenty of lace. Taste is mild chocolate and malt. Light bodied, balanced, pleasantly bitter, quite drinkable. A nice session.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2009
Pint in the Bricklayers Arms, Putney. Not a great Mild - went flat very quickly, and looks the colour of cola. I found it to be rather watery and low on hops. The low AVB makes it quite quafable, but it isn’t a memorable pint.

pivnizub (10085) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2009
Cask (@ Bricklayer’s Arms, Putney): Deep ruby-amber coloured, small lacey brownish head; dry hoppy and roast-malty nose with a subtle, but distinctive fruitiness in the background; moderate bitter flavour, light bodied, but not watery, smooth; slightly lingering moderate fruity-bitter finish. Pleasant, a fine session brew.........
