Idiosynkrasie (7967) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2017
500ml bottle [Thanks to Grumbo for this award-winning Mild!]. Opaque, darkest brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige to tan head. Toasty, dark malty aroma with a nuttily touch, hints of Brazil nut, dark chocolate, liquorice, cold coffee, a touch of toffee. Taste is mildly roasty, dark malty, slightly nutty and minimally chocolately, a touch of liquorice and toffee, cautious fruity overtones with hints of raisin, lingering hop bitterness. An extensive voyage through a great many malty regions.

BeardedAvenger (1123) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2017
Bottle from The Courtyard shop, Elveden. Malts and chocolate overpowered by a gassy milky cheese waft. This was a real gusher, started by foaming out of the bottle. Dark cola brown. Bubbly beige head, once it settles there are still a few mm. A creamy sweet edged bitterness. However, like the aroma, there’s a overpowering element - a particularly bitter streak is over emphasised by the lively fizzy carbonation. To be fair this gradually reduced in intensity and things smoothed out. Medium bodied. Slick. Long finish. Would have preferred this if it hadn’t been for the carbonation overload. However once this calmed down a perfectly good mild came through.

martpez (335) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2017
Sharp toffee and liqurace bit strong no depth but drinkable. I like elmtree but I also like my milds to be weak malty things this tastes like a weak Imperial stout.

Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Cask at GBBF 2016. It pours darkest brown with a small head. The aroma is toasty, woody, cacao nibs, damp leaves, sweaty and umami notes. The taste is sweet, oily, treacle, toffee, Eccles cake, dried berry and some sweet sugary notes. The finish is bitter - sweet. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Comes across a bit sugary overall. Fair.

GBBF Day 3. Dark brown color, average sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly chocolate, lightly brown malts and raisins, a bit sweet initially but a nice light bitter finish. Decent body and carbonation. Not bad.
