Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Cask at the White Horse 40 from 40 Festival, 1st May 2010. Deep chestnut brown. Not much aroma. Lives up to its name with a nutty flavour. Sweet and drinkable. Quite thin palate. Ok but no more. wheresthepath (2345) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2009
[Gravity cask at Chiltern brewery shop] Chestnut brown with a medium, frothy beige head. Glorious rich malty aroma made me desperate to get this one down my throat. Flavour isn’t quite as strong as aroma would suggest, but nevertheless it’s full of rich earthy roasted malt, plenty of nutty flavours (as the name suggests!) and a hint of chocolate. Good balance of creamy sweetness and dry bitterness in the finish. Good mild, this one. fonefan (49601) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2008

Cask at The Kings Head, The Chiltern Brewery pub Aylesbury, 21-03-08 Chesnut brown in colour with a a thin off white head. Tasted good and quite fruity with a nice tanginess about it. Nice blaance of sweetness and just some bitterness there. Caramel comes through and this isn’t a bad mild at all. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2007
A Mes rate:
Gravicask at Reading Festival. This was the winner of the best local mild for 2007. Personally I found it bland and watery even for a mild. Very pale colour for a mild. Too much tea and no character.
