Spoons Fest! Clear dark brown beer with a big creamy tan head. Low carbonation softish palate, a little dry. Mild dark malt with a little cream. An undertone of very mild smoke. Some sweet fruit makes a brief appearance before quickly turning alarmingly bitter through the semi dry finish. A bitter aftertaste that lingered for a good 20 mins. Not bad but I don’t understand why so many hold this in high regard. The malt side is pleasant but the hop side is way too aggressive. Not sure it is in Brewdogs nature to brew a Mild, like asking Wayne Rooney to take a pay cut!

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Cask at Cleveland Arms. Pours a dark brown, opaque, with a thin, off-white head. Strong dark malt aroma with roast, chocolate, light hops. Flavor has a modest sweetness, with strong, roasty malt character. Some char and tobacco. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Leaves heavy lacing. Dry roast finish, which lingers. Excellent beer, especially given the low ABV. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2008
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2008. Very dark brown, bubbly beige head. Some hops on aroma. Some grainy choc and cereal. It’s not a bad little mild, bit grainy, but fine. Bit smokey, some hop on finish. Didn’t think it matched up to all the hype it had been getting. TBone (17542) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2011

Dark nutty brown color, creamy brownish head. Nutty caramelly nose. Light to medium bodied. Light toasted malty flavor, some caramel, light hops. Easy going, light beer but with lots of flavor. Excellent session beer.
Cask (White Horse, Parson’s Green)Scopey (14731) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2010
6 decent roasty aroma, some cocoa
4 Deep red, brief loose beige head.
6 Full burnt taste, but a little stodgy and cocoa-powdery too, despite the palate.
4 Watery palate, carbonation low. Finish a little dry and powdery, but a fairly rich roast.
12 Competent, but unexceptional mild. Less thirst-quenching than I would like, substituting fullness with dryness.
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 On handpull at the Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico. Colour; dark brown/ruby, foamy toffee-coloured head. Nose: crisp, smoky, caramel malt. Taste: smooth, malty, coffee, dark chocolate, decent bitterness, refreshing with a brilliant taste for such a low percentage. As milds go this is as good as I’ve ever tasted.
