Oh Sarah, you’re a bit of a tart. Deep ruby brown complexion, light headed, not much lacing. Sweet malty aroma. Taste starts smooth and malty, turning slightly tart at the dry finish, hints of fruit in the middle. Nice and mellow

Pours red with a subtle tartness somewhat similar in style to some of the flemmish beers I enjoy. Very fruity and complex.

very toasted bready fruit palate with some wine like overtones. Brownsugar and molasses with a touch of burgundy.

Cask (gravity) at Burton Winter Ales Festival 2005. Dark ruby? Er, yes. Mild? Would make the old guys down my local heave to se it called that but I’m not complaining. Sweetish aroma, malty flavour, sourish aftertaste, a jack of all trades ale.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Cask conditioned - handpump - White Horse - Parsons Green London SW6. An oily, smoky, hoppy, fruity nose to this dark brown beer. The taste is really moreish with fruit, blackcurrants and alcohol. It is vinuous and very tasty.Score 3.9

Hand pulled at the White Horse, Parsons Green, London (as part of their Old Ale festival), with Joeh and Maeib. Dark, no head. Some cocoa in the aroma. Very good beer - very strong for a Mild, but full of flavour. Not demonstrative, but rich, roasty, berry and smooth. Delicious.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2004
Cask conditioned at the White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Dark ruby in colour, dark malts aroma. Sweet, floral malty with a slight lactiace age. A little sickly.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2004
I hate to copy the label... but it does have a dark ruby / mahogoney color. Fizzy and small light-brown head. Aroma has cranberry and whiskey, which is interesting, yet a little unappetizing at times. Sour puckering start. Like a sour whiskey sour? Its actually some other cooking alcohol.... like sherry. Its a dry, sherry-like sourness. Overall... its a bit weird. But it is pretty complex and nothing is wrong with it.

Great dark brown color with nice red glow. This beer has nice aroma’s of fine roasted malts with a fruity accent. This beer has a wine like caracter, untherbuild with maltyness and touches of stonefruit.

This is an all time classic. Rich, warming ale with a lingering full flavour. Beware the strength of this easily drinkerble beer. Don’t miss it.
