From notes, at Bar Volo pre- Cask Days 2011. Pours a very cloudy ruby amber colours with a decent foamy head. English mild aroma and flavours of light chocolate, roasted malts and nuanced herbal bitters. Nicely balanced and very flavourful. HogTownHarry (7085) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
October 25, 2011 - on gravity cask at Volo, pre- Cask Days 2011. Almost opaque deep ruby-brown with a decent if smallish frothy beige head. Appealing aroma - more like a traditional English mild - dry and roasty, no alcohol, a bit of cocoa and light fresh green herbal bitterness. Taste is dry, far less roast character, more dessert dryness, almost acidic - again no alcohol and surprisingly bitter. Average body, slick, lightly carbonated with a long, bitter, sort of cocoa finish ---- pretty solid, ultimately. robinvboyer (4811) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2011
Cask at volo.
Soft floral hops upfront with some mild toasty malts. Light carb, solid mouthfeel. Slighty nutty finish with some grassy hops. blankboy (7865) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2011
Cask at Volo. Pours a very deep reddish-brown, almost black, with a small somewhat-lasting fizzy tan head. Sweet and roasty aroma with hints of chocolate, dark fruit and vanilla. Flavour of lightly toasted caramel malt, dark fruit, light leafy hops, hints of coffee & chocolate and a light to average bitter finish. Average bodied. This isn’t what I expected from a Mild but I really enjoyed it, especially on a rainy day like today. mabel (10004) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2011

End of cask so it looked like milk chocolate with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice fruity esters, with grapes and light molasses, and some chocolate notes. In mouth, a smooth nutty malt with light grassy hops, very nice and smooth, light mineral notes. On tap at Volo, Oct. 29 2011. garthicus (2962) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 29, 2011
