Cask by handpump at 3 Judges, Glasgow (26 May 12) - hazy brown ale, thin bubbly white head, roasted nutty malt aroma, good temperature, sour, perhaps the end of the barrel, will look to re-rate this tommann (3980) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma has hints of infection, ashy vinegar with milk chocolate malts underneath. Taste has vinegary chocolate to start with a strong, sour finish. Chocolate aftertaste. cgarvieuk (26099) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2010
cask ... copper brown ... sweet toffee fruity hop ... some blackcurrant ... little smokey. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Treackle, bit of dark chocolate off the roasty malts, grassy hop, peppery finish. leaparsons (10809) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2009
Bottle conditioned. Brown with a rocky cream head. Aromas are weetabix malts with some roast character. Flavours are sweet weetabix and chocolate malts with yeast and some peppery notes. Slightly gritty with soda water on the finish but still a decent mild overall.

Cask conditioned at The Bridge, Kentchurch, Hereford. Dark brown with no head. Thin, fruity mild with little impact, some treacle notes with a touch of dark malt. Largely underwhelming. DruncanVeasey (8326) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2007
Bottled. Ashtray nose. Nasty. Muddy brown with a well-retained off-white head. Aggressive carbonation. Huge clumps of sediment left swilling in the bottle. Very leftfield fruitiness I can’t quite place. Quinoa? Reminds me of Oxfam Bruin. Odd smoky wheatiness with a watery low cal sweetener finish. A very slow grower getting better with each swig. Had no idea I was drinking a Mild. johndoughty (5566) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle bought from the excellent Ludlow festival of food and drink. Massive head upon pouring which took a long tie to diissipate. When it did what was left was a brown slightly acidic ale. Slightly sweet but overall quite poor. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2006
Cask at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small, fast disappearing white head. Strong, roasted malty aroma. Grassy, ashy taste with some sourness and a distinct peach flavour. Not your average mild, but very good.
