Modern style mild that bangs in the flavours. Well impressive. hops are different. Kind of wild. Good.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the GBBF, 2004.
Fruity light mild. Rather lovely fruity flavour but ever so light in colour and flavour.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2004
Cask conditioned - no sparkler - Malt Shovel Northampton. A very dark beer; almost black with a hint of red. The aroma is like sour chocolate as is the taste. The alcohol comes through very strongly and it is hard to believe it is only 3.8%. Not a typical mild but a good drink

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2004
[Cask conditioned] Very dark brown coloured. Very mild and very malty. A classic mild ale with a very funny name.

WhiteStar (37) - Swindon, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2004
Cask conditioned @ Railway Arms. A farmers bag of wild hedgerow fruits ripe for the plucking and dark as a smuggler’s cave. A blessing in disguise.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2004
Cask conditioned @ Railway Arms, Alton. Fruity, roast, malt and toffee aroma. Dry body with some coffee. Excellent mild but I couldnt really appreciate it on the hottest day of 2004 so foar.

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2004
Very dark colour and full bodied for a mild - I wasn't sure whether this was supposed to be a mild or a stout. The slightly bitter finish reinforced this. Whatever it is, I thought it was very appealing and, if it is a mild, it is certainly my type of mild. Handpump, The Crosse Keys, City of London, March 2003

leaparsons (8152) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2003
Dark, dark red in colour. This has a winter fruit, vineous aroma. Flavours are juicy, fruity malts, the finish is dry and moresish. Mmmm.

SilkTork (5225) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2004 July 2003: Gravity Cask, Kent Beer Festival. Fried egg aroma. Nice tangy flavour - brambles and raspberries. Very tasty. [3.7]
Aug 2004: Railway Arms, Alton - A Triple fff pub. Awesome mild. Soft and flavoursome. Magnificent. [4.4]

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2003
Quite nice. Light chocolate and caramel flavours as you'd expect in a mild, with a touch of late roastyness (as i also expect in the darker milds). Some light hop bitterness at the end. Simple and enjoyable (Cask KentBF 03')
