Cask at the Magpie, mahogany-black with a coarse beige head, smoky and faintly plum and cocoa nose, dry with roast coffee and burnt bitterness with a hint of dried dark fruit. Very nice. SaintMatty (7559) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Cask (Oddfellows, North Shields) - Dark brown with red tinges. Blackcurrant, roasted malt and cocoa in the aroma. Roasted malt and cocoa feature in the enjoyable taste. wheresthepath (2406) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Reddish-brown with a moderate yellowy-beige head. Roasted malt dominates with some chocolate and plum sourness putting in the occasional appearance. The roast is a little on the burnt side for my liking, and the mouthfeel is a bit sticky by the end. Nevertheless, it’s an OK mild. imdownthepub (15425) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut with off white head. Quite a nutty flavour to this, richer malts, reasonably fruity, some bitterness and quite smooth. Good. cgarvieuk (26099) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2012

Gravity dispense at the Windsor Locale festival - 22/07/12. berkshirejohn (6690) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2012
Mahogony brown in colour with reddish hues when held to the light and a smallish tan head.
Malt, grain, a little toffee on the nose.
Tastes similar to nose with a bready feel, a little butterscotch and a sweetish bitter finish.
Cask at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence. An attractive deep ruby red in colour, almost black, with a thin ring of beige head; aroma of earthy malts with perhaps a touch of smoke; rather thinly bodied, but with lots of grainy, bready, nutty, malts giving a slight sweetness; and a very gentle earthy bitterness to finish. A really good mild.
