Brewed to celebrate Mild Month this dark ruby beer has a knotty juxtaposition. Sweetness from the dark malts preludes the smooth dryness of the hops. "Nautical but Nice".

garthicus (2907) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 8, 2014
On cask at The Wellington. Appearance: ruby red/brown with a small off white head. Aroma: a little damp cardboard, malty with a hint of sweetness. Flavour: dark fruit, some nuttiness, caramel and grass, quite flavourful for such a low ABV. Kudos.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 10 June. Very dark pour and coffee and ripe fruit aromas. Very nice, full bodied mouth feel, but easy drinking. Sweetness balanced by some light dark chocolate bitterness. Quite quaffable.

jmgreenuk (7669) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 8, 2013
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a cloudy dark brown, with a bubbly broken white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium bitter, liqourice, malty, caramel and toffee. A super mild.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Prunes, vanilla and wet stones are met by a sudden earthy hop bitterness in this characterful Mild Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the dark brown with ochre highlights.
-The hop bitterness is quite lengthy, partly due to the dry finish.
-Mouthfeel is a bit limp but never short on flavor.
-Malt flavors could be tighter.

On cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2013
Poured a deep ruby red with a thin, dense white head. Aroma of roast malt and chocolate. Medium to weak body, flavour is as the aroma with some bitter nuttyness.
