Cask. Sweet toffee malt aroma. Dark brown color with decent head. Sweet toffee malt and light grass flavor. Very nice mild. harrisoni (19336) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2008
Cask gravity at Red Lion, Snargate, summer bf 08. Dark ruby mild. Curious mild. Roasty, but an unusual roasty. Deep malts. Some dark fruits, morello cherry and plums. In fact quite a lot of cherry. Quite distinctive and pleasant. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Ealing Beer Festival.TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2007
Almost opaque very dark red colour with a thin beige rim. Lovely blackcurrant fruity notes with some good dark malt. The fruity notes are really good, as is the good milky chocolate finish with a slight smoky hint. A no frills, very drinkable traditional mild.
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, dark with ruby tints - no head. A sweet malty aroma. Very smooth in the mouth, followed by a dry finish, though a little flavourless. FatPhil (17079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 14, 2008

Classic dark mild appearance. Apple and slight peardrop aroma. Estery taste. Plain grainy body too. Left me wanting, but not actually disappointed. Probably EOB.
Cask at CAMRA York Beer and Cider Festival, 21.9.2013. Clear ruby colour, fruity, fig, some bread aroma, very bready, toasty bitter undertones. Light body, bready finish. Nice. chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2005
Although this beer is from a well established microbrewery with a small chain of pubs, the beers don’t often make an appearance down south, so this was a rare and welcome opportunity for me to try the mild. I guess because they have their own tied house, they don’t feel the need to hawk their wares round beer festivals and through the free trade too much. This is billed as a traditional mild and you can’t argue too much with that. Mild malt and caramel dominate with just the slightest hint of coffee in the background. Dry, slightly chalky mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Decent enough. Cask (gravity), Reading Beer Festival 2005.

Cask at the Brewery Arms, Keighley, West Yorks, 20-05-06. A simple but pleasant mild, that went down well. Stopherbomber (111) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 10, 2007
the best beer i tasted at the battersea beer fest, was probably the only one that i would have liked to have more than one of. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2008
Deep rubyish amber colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel malts, dark fruits, some flowery hops as well as mild yeast. Flavour is the same along with some mild roast and coffee. The coffee stays in the aftertaste too, along with dark fruits. Rather mild mild.
