Cask at GBBF 2009. Pours a very dark brown colour, with a light, creamy tan head. Good roasted malts aroma with some chocolate. Plenty of roasted malt in the flavour, with a dry finish.

Cask handpump at GBBF ’09. Many thanks to cgarvieuk for this one. Brown. Wheaty aroma. Slightly sour ashy taste. Some dryness. Not the best mild of the day, but there were some crackers on show.

Nut brown color, small white head. Chocolaty aroma, some raisins. A bit fruity flavor with caramel and coffee. Light palate. Decent traditional mild.
Brownish coloured body with a light tan head. Aroma of light roasted malt, subtle mushrooms and a bit of a nutty scent. Light to Medium-bodied; Sharp metallic flavour up front fades into a malty taste and a bit of pit fruits in the taste. Aftertaste shows some nutty tastes along with a very mild coffee and chocolate type taste. Overall, a decent beer; definitely good to try! I sampled this pint on cask at The Market Porter in Borough, London, England on 11-March-2008. berkshirejohn (6654) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2009
Cask at the Hobgobin, Reading. Tar coloured with a thin tan head; earthy aroma; sweet fruity malt flavours with some coffee; good sustained bitterness and a spicy and warming finish. An excellent mild. harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2008
Cask gravity at SIBA BF, Paddock Wood. Very very dark brown. Thin beige head. Lovely toasty aroma. Excellent dark mild, hint of dark fruits. Some roasted malts, lots of choc, some coffee. Very full in mouth. Enormously pleasing on the swallow. Excellent dark mild. Even a bit of tar. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2008
A Mes rate: cask at the Hop Farm festival.
Mid brown with a thin beige film, quite light for a mild. Excellent meaty malt notes with some slight coffee and some good caramel. A little more chocolate and roasted malt appears in the mouth giving a good bitter note plus some toasted bread in the finish. A jolly good mild.
