SilkTork (5712) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, - OCT 5, 2012
Jan, 2003 In cask form this won Supreme Champion Beer of Britain in 2000. In the bottle it lacks character. Its pleasant enough, for sure, but for some real kickass Mild in the bottle try Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby. [2.4]
Oct, 2012 500ml brown glass bottle from Morrisons. 1.50. Good powdery chocolate whiff and flavour. Little nip of hop and burnt barley bitterness in the swallow. A decent drinking beer, and with plenty of character and taste for a 3.4% abv. Good enough. [3.0]

No head, but some lacing. A lovely dark colur and a real hit of lightly bitter chocolate on the first sip. It was quite a surprise and very nice. The sweet and bitterness was nicely balanced and it had a very good low abv. I liked this a lot and I will seek it out again.

Pyobon (1383) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2016
(Bottle) Pours very dark brown with deep red hints and a nice thick, but short-lived, beige head. Good aroma - dark malt, toasty, hints of nuts and flint. Medium body with lovely soft carbonation. Nice taste - toasty malt with great balance, some nice bitterness. Excellent mild.

seymour (1970) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Poured from a tall brown bottle into a tulip glass at Ciceros in the Loop. Opaque dark brown, reddish at the corners when held to the light, with sudsy beige foam and lace. Malty, dark toasty (not roasty), molasses, pie cherries, black liquorice, nutty, cacau nibs. Light body but complex flavour and mouthfeel, the multi-layered aftertaste went on and on. Phenomenal mild ale, authentic style-defining, delicious. I CANNOT WAIT TO DRINK MORE.

Godfather50 (238) - SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Pours darker than ruby with a lovely off white head. Little nose but digging in the mouthfeel is superb. Soft, lively pillow of chocolate feathers fluttering down from a cool breeze of bubbles. The brown malt is lifted perfectly as melted malty marshmallows. Theres no snense that this beer has water in it. Rather it has melted and been bottled before it sets. Nice.

harrisoni (18232) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Black deep ruby colour lasting beige head. Bit of buttery malt on the aroma. I love this beer on cask. Its just not as good in bottle, lacks the mouthfeel. Finish is decent some dark fruits on finish is also good. Nothing offensive. Lacks that wow factor of a cask beer.
