Bottle from Waitrose: I was really impressed with this one. For a 3.7% beer it certainly packs a lot of flavour in there. Lots of roasted malt, a little chocolate and a lovely oily mouthfeel to it. Fantastic example of a well crafted mild.

Grumbo (1657) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2016
Cask handpull at the Shadingfield Fox, Suffolk. Pours ruby brown with an off white head. Aroma of light malt, chocolate and touch of sour fruits. Medium to heavy sweetness, light roasted bitterness. Medium body, texture slightly sticky, soft carbonation. Dry fruity finish. Better cask than bottled.

Swaroga (2129) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Despite the fact this beer is watery with very low alcohol ...this is a decent brew. Soft and creamy mouth feel, delicate carbonation. Aroma is mostly nuts, bread skin, some little coffee and grains. The flavor is filled with juicy malts. Good grain backbone, almost toffee and coffee like. Very easy to drink and satisfying. Will come back.

Cask at the Fat Cat, Kelham Island, Sheffield. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin broken white head. The aroma is red berry fruits, sweet malts. The flavour is moderate roasty bitter with a light watery roasty malt, liqourice, light hop bitter palate. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

(2) Not worth trying. Why? It was just not good. It was sour and unbalanced - maybe a bottle gone bad?

JorgeLee (1856) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Cask in the Jerusalem Tavern with Fletcher. Deep dark brown in colour, white foam. Full tasting, nuts, chocolate, prune. Decent level of bitterness. Goes down very easily. Good mild.

Cask at the Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon. Dark brown with a light tan head. Sweet/sour malty scent. Light and sweet taste, borne forward with sesame, bamboo and chocolate malt flavours. Inconsequential but its a mild so Im ok with that. Certainly enjoyable for what it is.
