SilkTork (5694) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2010 Aug, 2004 Bright bottled at Peterborough Fest - drunk nearly a week later. Mmmmm. I love a good Mild, and this is certainly a good Mild. Bags of dark berry fruit with a healthy hint of soft bitterness and gentle coffee roast. Great mouthfeel. The whole experience is delightful. So much flavour. My mouth is alive and buzzing. I have been fortunate to have had a string of excellent milds in the past two days. [3.9]
May, 2010 JDW, Rochester. Some deep cherry, a bit of butterscotch, some roast. All a bit blurred. Finishes with a mild bitter tang. Not impressed. [2.6]

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2004
Reddish brown colour. Not the darkest or most full bodied of milds but theres enough malt, caramel and fruit to generate interest. A good, solid, effort. Cask at GBBF 2004 (with Dan Brown).

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.
