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]chriso (7569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2004
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]
Reddish brown colour. Not the darkest or most full bodied of milds but there’s enough malt, caramel and fruit to generate interest. A good, solid, effort. Cask at GBBF 2004 (with Dan Brown).

Handpump, The Market Porter: Dark ruby as the name suggests. Really earthy, fruity aroma with some slight roasty notes and a touch of wineyness. Dark fruity flavours with a chalky roast mouthfeel. The fruits come out as port-like, and there are some quite prominant hop flavours as well. Pretty nice. leaparsons (10613) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2006

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. 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. dynamiteninja (1866) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
