Cask at troon beer fest 07... Deep fruity malts ; sweet fruity slightly meaty roast malts ... rich fruity malts. Unusualy for a mild i think this could do with more body and a bit higher strength. Its nice but could do with a bit more punch. Theydon_Bois (19507) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013

Bottle (real ale), from some rural gas station in Cumbria, probably with some cows nearby. Dark brown body. The aroma has some chocolately fudge and light nuttiness. Slightly creamy character, again nutty and fudgey. A simple mild, but a tasty one. leaparsons (10546) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2010

Bottle picked up by dad from Geltsdale Brewery, cheers dad. Consumed at home Wednesday 21.08.13 Dark chestnut brown beer, off-white head. In terms of taste it is nutty, a touch watery in fact it has to be said this is very true to the style. It’s fine but hardly exciting, low bitterness, some caramel, difficult to knock it as it does exactly what it should do, mmhhhh.... maybe its a style I’ve left behind.
