I was truly impressed with this beer.It is 2.7%abv and quite astonishing. The flavour is roasty and for the strength decent in the mouth. There is a very nice hop aroma, a little fruity and fairly bold against the malty background. Well done fellows.
Cask Half Pint at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London in Aug 2010 - Dark Red/Brown in colour. Very Malty; roasty malts, espresso coffee, dark chocolate. Fruity; dark fruits, berries. Hoppy; grassy hops. Nice malt/fruit/hop balance. Roast malty throughout with a marked hoppy/fruit edge. Dry bitter finish. Astonishingly full flavoured for such a low ABV beer. Nice Beer! (2010-08)

Originally rated on 20110408.
Pours hazy amber color with a small head. Aroma of hops, mild malts, some caramel and grass. Flavor of hay, mild hops, malts and toffee.
Decently brewed mild ale with some fruity notes, although not the best looker! oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 26, 2012

, Tampere. Rubyish black colour with a small head. Aroma is ripe dark fruits, mild toffee, zest and mild floral notes. Flavour is similar, but the hops are rather strong. Light Cascadian Dark Ale? Tasty.
Off cask at derby beer festival. Incredible amount of flavour for such a low abv, mainly dark, malty flavours. Very nice.

Sept, 2010. Bree Louise, on the Welcome Pub Crawl. Dark, dry, light and clean. Decent body. A drinkable beer. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 27, 2011
Cask at Southampton Arms ages ago. Gutted that this has been retired as I drank it before I started rating. So, apologies for the vague rating, it is all done from memory. Was a fantastic beer with much more taste than you might expect for the ABV. Hope they make it again some time. Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 19, 2011
Bridge Bar,Belfast for Wetherspoon November 2010 beer fest.
Dark beer with plenty of roast flavour for such a low ABV, also fairly hoppy so not a true mild. tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2011
Sampled this in Tennents Bar, Glasgow in September 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thick creamy buff head that looks solid enough to stand on. Smokey birch wood comes through in the intense and long lasting peaty aroma. Thick double cream mouthfeel and superb lacing. Dark malt complexes ooze rich flavours of bitter chocolate, mocha coffee, black treacle and maple syrup. Sweet and moreish. A slight prickle of hop resins in the short aftertaste but dry chicory note comes through in the nutty hazelnut texture. Robust dry vanilla oak notes are present in the smooth smokey finish. A superb Scottish mild that is packed full of flavour and tastes far stronger than the low abv suggests. Highly recommended. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap, June 2011.
Very dark brown, creamy beige head. Lots of flavour for a low ABV. Malty depth with peppery and dry hops to balance. Too bitter for a mild, perhaps, but I am not complaining.
