rosenbergh (11613) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2012
Cask at the Gallows Bird XV Real Ale Festival, Espoo, Finland.
Dark reddish brown colour with small tan head. Nutty and woody aroma with mild hops and some sweetness. Mild malt, nuts, wood and dry mild hops in flavour. Quite tasty for a Mild.

jackl (8217) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Amber color with a small off-white head. The nose is roasted malts, caramel, chestnut and other nutty flavors. The taste is of grain and roasted malts. Dry finish. The palate’s medium. Nice, well-developed mild.

thomat (3932) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2011
Dark amber with a small, tan head. Malty with fruity tones. Malt, fruit and hops. Medium body and a nice, bitter sweet finish.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2011
Cask @ The Blue Bell York. A clear brown colored beer, with a thick foamy light beige head. The aroma of caramel malt and fruits. The taste is gentle bitter with some sweet notes, with caramel. The aftertaste is some sweet, with a little bitter.

dogbomb (1233) - ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2011
Pours a nice dark ruby with a quickly receding mid-brown head. Heady malts with nuts and a mild coffee on the nose. Mild bitter drink (living up to it’s name) but is a little heavy. A light carbonation and the mild bitter finish making this very drinkable.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2011
[cask at Melton’s Too, York] Deep brownish red beer, quite a lovely colour. Thin white head. Roasty malt aroma with some chocolate, touch of fruit on the nose. Nutty, slightly toffeeish on the palate, more chocolate. Very well balanced. Very drinkable, touch thin maybe, but to be expected given the style [30102011]

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2011
Aroma of nuts, a big rich nutty flavour. Dark red with a disc head. Plenty to it, just not quite to my taste, a good mild.

Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - SEP 5, 2011
Cask @ Haymarket Bar. Rudgate ruby mild. Ruby red colour, off-white head. Nose is fruity, light malted, little roastiness. Flavour is fruity, light malted, glue. Slightly roasty finish.

EdKing (2611) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2011
Cask in Dog and Duck. Pours reddish. Thin White head. Nose is sweet fruity malt. Taste is sweet fruity malt. Feels like it’s been dry hopped which is odd for mild. Dry chalkiness on the tongue. Not blowing me away and not sure about the dryness.

berkshirejohn (6534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2011
Cask at the Falcon, Claphm Junction. Deep ruby colour with a scummy looking cream head; aroma of deep roasted malts with a hint of chocolate; rich chocolate malt flavour with a floury body; a gentle but deep bitterness balances against the sweet purple fruit, before a long dry finish. An excellent mild.
