avion, Aldridge. Ruby brown beer with small bubbly head. Aroma of light chocolate and some roast malts. Taste is chocolate, roast malts and some earth. Good.
Cask at The Plough and Harrow, Hammersmith as ’Summerskills Barley Mow’, 4.8%. Dark amber orange or brown, clear, still, small foamy tan head. Aroma is wholemeal bread, a little flowery. Body is smooth, a little foamy, quite tingly carbonation for cask. Taste is dark dense breads, resinous, twig, ryvita with a soft bitterness. A nice malty beer with a touch more balancing bitterness than you get with many milds. minutemat (6436) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Cask half pint @ Montgomery’s Tower, Shrewsbury. Pours deep reddish amber, frothy off-white head. Aroma is caramel and raisins. Taste is good nutty caramel malts with faint tobacco. Solid mild. Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Cask at The Bishops’ Mill (JDW), Durham, £2.09/pint.
Dark, ruby brown with a big, foamy, off-white head. The nose is muted but there are some sweetish malts and leafy character detectable too. The taste is very dry and bitter for self-professed mild ale and driven by a sharp, unpleasant acidity. Some leafy, earthy flavours are there too but the bitter off note ruins it. Not enjoyed.

Cask @ Wetherspoon’s Piccadilly, Manchester. Dark mahogany coloured with a thin head. Slightly sweetened mild with a few roasted malts evident too in both aroma and taste. It has a bit of a strength as well. niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2016
