harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2007
Cask gravity at Pembury Tavern. Very dark brown/ruby with lasting beige head. Very tasty mild, bit of almost whiskyish malt. Bit nutty and good roasted flavours. Actually got a bit of grapefruit hop. Good mild.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2005
Cask Conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival ’05. Black beer with a bubbly malt head. Highly flavoured mild with a roasted chocolate base. Thin and drinkable with a late hop finish. Moorish and very good for the style.

leaparsons (9843) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2005
Cask, Criterion, Leicester. Vert dark red/brown with a cream head. Aromas are earthy and light roast malts, slightly sweet with berries. Quite hoppy. Flavours are dry, light roast malts with chocolate, spices and coffee bitterness. Hoppy for a mild with a gentle sparkle. Pretty good.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Harbury BF. My first beer of this rather quaint but very enjoyable and well run small fest in a village hall. Thanks to Glen (or more correctly Sandra) for saving us seats! A black mild with a nice white head. The aroma had a little roasted malt, some smoke and a little chocolate. The taste is dry and mild. Again a little roasty and some smoky chocolate. A nice mild.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2009 1) The Crown, Nuneaton. Dark ruby. Wet Hobnob, whole hop mustiness and toffeeish malt. Big hop presence for a Mild, but I’m not complaining. Cheeky one. 2) Cask, back at The Crown. Earthy and balsamic with insinuating chocolate black cherry and soil. Better the first time.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 5/05/09. Dark chestnut with a moderate, off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and red fruits. Flavour was well balanced between caramel, bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Finish was lingering and bitter. Good.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Three Guineas, Reading, 30 April 2009. Dark ruby colour. Loose, but persistent, off-white head. Light fruity aroma with some chocolate malt accents. Slightly woody, with strong berry fruit notes, in the flavour. Rather dry mouthfeel with a quite powerful herbal, angostura-like bitterness. Mouthfeel is little thin. Unusual and more like an old ale than a mild.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at the Wenlock. Looks mild like but slightly muddier. (Damn I’m a real wordsmith tonight). Quite dry really and a little too hoppy. Drinkable enough just not enough in the way of malt. Sorts itself out for the finish so ended up slipping down nicely like a mild should.
