Reddish colour - not that dark. Distinctly floral aroma, reminiscent of rose water. Not exactly what you’d expect in a mild, but very appealing. Supple roast malt flavour, with some sweetness. Smooth texture. Finishes quite dry and bitter. Rather hoppy for a mild. Not typical, but impressive. Cask (gravity), Catford Beer Festival.

Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Cooper coloured, with a white speckled head. Dissipating. Certainly some reddish colour as well. Unusual style of a beer for a mild, however this has been verified with Rob Jones the owner/brewer at Dark Star and it certainly is a mild according to him. The flavour starts with a soft malty, caramel opening, the more traditional ‘Mild’ like flavours, only to finish with a moderate-big bitter kicker. I’ve certainly had bitters more mild then this. Tradition light mild is the consensus from the very learned drinking community at the Wenlock today at lunch.

imdownthepub (14471) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Evening Star, Brighton. Dark brown, red, thin malty head. A good stab this at producing a flavourfull mild. Strong maltiness with a fruity (Plum?) overtone. Easy drinking, plenty of body.
