August 2017 - Cask, handpull, at GBBF 2017, Kensington Olympia. As 'Brown Cow Captain Oates Dark Mild'. A top 50 mild at the time of review. Brown with an orange hue, translucent and still with a big foamy brown head. Aroma is demerara, caramel wafer. Body is smooth, fairly light with soft carbonation. Taste is watery up front, quite thin malts, building resinous and salty vibes. A true mild. (6-4-6-4-14=3.4) Mr_Pink_152 (5541) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017

Cask at The Great British Beer Festival 2017, Kensington Olympia. Looks lovely; very dark ruby with a beige head. Aroma is earthy and dried fruit. Quite thin. Flavours are sweet at first, and leave a lingering earthiness. Mjp12 (2031) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2017

21st Aug 2016: cask pint in The Star, Filey, Yorkshire. A rich, cream coloured head sat on my dark bodied beer giving off malty esters which included chocolate and coffee notes. The taste a pleasant malt led flavour with again chocolate and coffee being the main participants. The finish was slightly drying: nice pint. dogbomb (1253) - ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2015
