martinrumsam (499) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Cask dark brown thin beige lasting head. Muted aroma some toasty notes. Taste something like plum to start before the toasted malt takes over which continues to develop in the mouth and lingers for a long time Thin mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Grows on you. Much better than I was expecting.

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Cask at Nicholsons Drum & Monkey. Very nice beer... Quite surprising as it appears somewhat ambiguous at first sight! Quite a nice full bodied beer for its low ABV which goes to show strength isnt everything for complex beers. Mild roasted notes, hop up front, sweet syrupy taste with a dry roasted coffee finish. Great!

jjsint (661) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Cask @ Guide Dog, Southampton. Translucent dark brown. Looks lightweight. Aroma and taste say otherwise! Aroma is maltissimo, still flavours as diverse as cherries and earth come through. Sweet and light with sour edges. Bitter aftertaste. A brilliant mild which excels with complex aroma and taste while remaining a mild in character.

On cask in London
I had some time to kill before the trip back north so I ordered a pint of this at The Harp. It actually was a striking example of a mild. With enough flavor to be interesting but not so much that it killed the palate it proves that not all session beers are boring. I hope I can find a few more like this.

Aroma / Appearance - The creamy little remnant of vanilla head decorated a brownish base. It sat in the glass like flat cola. Semisweet chocolate chips, coffee, and Jello pudding pops brighten the air with a velvety texture.

Flavor / Palate - The creamy mouthfeel glides gracefully across the tongue. Chocolate toffee, oaky coffee, and more carry into a pleasant bitter finish. From start to finish this is a worthwhile beer. Grab some on cask when you see it next.
