Leighton (19846) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Cask at the Wandsworth Common Spring BF, London. Pours clear, golden-brown with a foamy, bubbly white head. Toast, dough and light toffee aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, lightly earthy with toasty toffee and faint, leathery fruit. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Decent bitter bite to finish with toasty wood, dirt and leaves, toasty toffee, hints of honey and dark sugar. Very good. What I expect of a mild.

Svesse (8148) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2012
(Cask at Edgar Wallace, Strand, London, 18 April 2012) Very dark brown colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, dark chocolate and dried fruit. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, chocolate, raisins, prunes, gentle liquorice hints and a decent roasty bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Quit a nice and tasty mild.

Rune (11759) - Troms, NORWAY - APR 23, 2012
Hand pulled cask, half pint at Bon Accord. Tiny, beige head to an almost rosewood coloured body. Roasted dark malts to the nose, as well as a bready touch. Roasted dark malty flavour featuring liquorice and herbal hops. Rounded malt bitter ending. Well made mild (Glasgow, 11.04.2012).

Scopey (13560) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2012
Cask at Wandsworth Beer Festival, March 2012. It pours reddish-amber, with a tiny beige head. The nose is leather, wood, cardboard, biscuit and dry roast. The taste is very dry, leather, wood, charcoal, roasted malt and a hint of dark fruit, with a long, very dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not much to it at all.

harrisoni (17692) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2011
Cask handpull at The Berry, Walmer. Very dark brown, lasting thin beige head. Very decent mild. Yes, good malts, not overly roasty, just a good blend of malts. And it is mild and malty and weell put together. Good.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Ruby-brown with lasting head. Fruity aroma is spice cake treacle. Buttery oily and thin. Has nice bready malts. Overall boring and thin, but has a cake character.

Oakes (16493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2010
Chestnut brown. Lightly toasty aroma. Toast vs. butter on the palate. Not terribly complex or exciting.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2010
Cask, Kings Had, Carlisle. Ruby mild, with quite a bitter edge. Chocolate aroma which follows through to the flavour and some sweetness comes through, would like to see more sweetness in this beer though.
