OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 22, 2011
Half, from [email protected] White Horse at Parsons Green, London. A finger of beige foamy head with excellent lacing, resting on a ruby-shaded dark brown body. Smell of light toasted and doughy malts. Faint pepper and dark dried fruits. Sourish-sweet malt flavor with mild roastedness and buiscuit and choco tones. Fine earthy bitterness. Very light body, yet kind of sharp on the palate. Sourish, light bitter ending. Quite thin, otherwise a decent mild.

Leighton (23125) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2011
Cask at the White Horse, London. Pours a dark ruby-brown, clear, with a mild, white and foamy head. Malty aroma with light roast and mocha. Sweet flavor with roasted malts, bread, light candy and some very faint, earthy and roasty bitters. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish with more roasted malts and mild cocoa. A solid, straightforward mild.

Rune (14065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2010
Deep ruby-brown body. Low, bubbly beige head. Roasted aroma of dark malts. Roasted chocolate malts in flavour. Thin and diluted on the swallow, but alright for a low alcohol mild. Cask, well kept half pint, before noon at White Horse, London 5 Oct 10.

Cask på White Horse, Parsons Green 5 Okt 10. Dyp rubinrød. Lavt luftig skum. Forsiktig sjokoladearoma. Smaken brukbart fyldig med nøttepreg. Svakt syrlig bitter ettersmak.

RichardGretton (4883) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2009
[email protected] Beer Festival 2009. Brownish beer with a reddish tinge. The aroma is nicely bitter and roasted, and the flavour is watery and roasted. Overall a nicely roasted beer that tastes quite strong.

3.4
leaparsons (10916) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2009
Cask, Loughborough Fest 09. Dark brown with a small head. Aromas are earthy with weetabix malts. Flavours are weetabix and sweet caramel malts with a light bitter finish. A malty mild.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2009
Minipin (’bag in box’), from brewery. Had an 18 pint minipin of this over Christmas. Just glorious. Beautifully dark, though not the jet black I like my mild to be. Great flavour, not overly rich, but plenty of chocolate maltiness coming through. Eminently drinkable and tastes much stronger then the 3.2% a.b.v. An abolute classic English mild and definitely worthy of its CBOB prize.

4.1
Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Cask at the White Horse, for "Still here Mr. Selle?" session, at their Old Ale Festival, 28th Nov 08. Mid brown with a superb complex malt aroma. The low strength gives the flavours room to breathe and flourish. Coffee & caramel malt in abundance and a lovely smooth finish. I could instantly see why it landed the Supreme Champion Beer of Britain award in 2007.
