Cask; Status uncertain.
A typical old fashioned dark mild, but with a surprisingly fresh bitterness, which is held right to the very finish.

Pleased with this. A very flavoursome dark mild despite the lower OG. A smooth but pleasant bitter finish. A great lunchtime pint or evening for that matter. Good to see a mild on at the bar (Wetherspoons of course). Other pubs need to follow their lead. Seems to be selling very well.

Grumbo (4254) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2017
Cask at Redwald's Ale House, Rendlesham, Suffolk. 4.7%. Pours almost black with s small beige/grey head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, dark fruits, moderate roasting and light coffee. Medium sweetness, moderate bitterness. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Very good.

The_Osprey (9666) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2016
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Nethergate Black Shadow’, says 4.7% on the pump clip. Almost opaque black with a red hue, very little head, just a tan ring. Aroma is chocolate malt and ash. Body is smooth and rounded, almost chewy, with low carbonation. Taste is molasses, dates, light metallics, flat cola, some ashy dark chocolate notes. Sweet and rich but does have a roastiness offsetting this. Above average for style but a half is plenty for me.

Very woody smokey aroma. Lovely dark appearance with a creamy beige head. Really caramel flavour with string caramel aftertones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask (handpump) at GBBF, August 2006. Deep chestnut brown colour with a thin beige head. Light malt aroma - more grainy than roasty. Reasonably dry on the palate with ample nutty and caramel character. Decent fruity mouthfeel, not too thin with a touch of bite on the finish. An extremely drinkable and wholesome mild. Not sure how this differs from the regular Priory Mild but I found it rather more enjoyable.

Nekronos (4213) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 6, 2006
Good, this guyus brew nice beers. The taste of the malts was nice, nice foam, not the favourite of some others, but it is not a law. I like the aftertaste and the aroma, not tiring after.

Cask (GBBF 2006): Deep amber brown with a touch of roast and choc. Medium bodied, refreshing. Nice mild.

2.3
maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF. A very dark brown coloured beer. The aroma has some slight maltiness but not much else. The taste had some slightly stale roasted malt, and an oily character. It was however a little farty which, of course, let it down.
