Cask at the CP&K, 22/06/16. Mahogany brown with a well appointed beige cap. Nose is tobacco, earthy, dark fruit esters, ageing wood. Taste comprises brown bread, tobacco, faint cherry skins, toffee. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light dryness in the close. Decent mild.

harrisoni (19024) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2007
Cask gravity at Ealing BF 2007. Very dark ruby with thin beige head. Some choc/coffee in mouth. Good tasting in mouth. Finish has some choc/charcoal and a bit of spicyness. Decent mild, though aroma is poor. Middle and end are good. I keep having Pictish beers as Gazza swears by them. Also good to see the last person who rated this was Kook last year at the same festival.

imdownthepub (15030) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2005
Cask Conditioned at The White Lion, Fewcott, Oxon. Dark brown wih ruby glow, malty head. By heck they know how to brew a mild in Lancashire, richly roasted with coffee and chocolate notes, a little thin on the tongue as it should be and a nice blackberry fruity finish. Nice and steady.

ManVsBeer (10806) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Cask @ Fox & Goose, Hebden Bridge. Very dark red with a thin head. Very mild tasting with light roasted malts evident in both its aroma and taste.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2006
Cask Handpump at the Beer House, Manchester 23/04/2001 Dark coloured and quite bitter for a mild of this ABV, drinks stronger too and has character.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Market Porter London 16/05/13. A near black beer with an off-white head. Light roast throughout. Very mild indeed. Edging towards sweet. A bit of veg. Quite plain as milds were a few years ago but nowadays milds have lots more about them for better or worse.

chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2005
Pictish are usually associated with the golden ales in which they specialise but they certainly know how to make dark ones too. This is a lovely mild, very dark in colour, with a quite full body. Roasted malt abounds, with subtle chocolate, coffee and gentle dry bitterness on the finish. A top class mild. cask (handpump), Moorcock, Littleborough.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Reading Beer Festival.
Dirty brown with a bubbly head. Nutty malt with some slight coffee notes. Actually the malt is superb. Tiny bit of choc and roast and a good earthy finish with very light bitterness. A good mild.
