East, London. Copper colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity, nutty, caramelly and also has some mild toffee as well. Flavour is fruity, wooden, nutty and some mild wooden and herbal notes. Balanced and nice mild ale!
Cask @ brewery. Pours a dark cola with a decent, latte-colored head. Aroma is dark malts, bready and caramelly. But not in the same way a dunkel or a porter. Hard to explain the difference. More earthy one might say. Taste is dark malty, dry bready, small floweriness. Some cacao. Again a bit earthy, setting it apart from dunkels, porters or bitters. Light with not much carbonation. Definitely sessionable. madmitch76 (27117) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012

On tap at the Brew Pub. Clear red brown beer, small pale tan head. Smooth palate with a little fine carbonation. Nice malty chocolate base blends well with the mildly citric hop. Develops a stronger citric kick before the semi dry finish with more chocolate (powder this time). Decent mild.
Cask at the brewpub, London. Pours clear amber with a sturdy, beige cream head. Lovely nose, light toffee, hints of toasty bread and chocolate. Light sweet flavor with toasty dough malts, light toffee, a few leaves, hints of dry cocoa. Light in body with fine carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish, with more toasty bread, light toasty sugars, mellow toffee. A pretty classic mild. Nothing to shout about, but fine. Stuu666 (15790) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 9, 2016

Cask at Tap East. It pours deep ruby, with a thin beige head. The nose is wood, leather, dark fruit, blackcurrant jam and coffee. The taste caramel, wood, dark fruit, leather chocolate and a touch of smoke, with a clean finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Easy drinking and smooth.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2017 On cask @ the brewpub. Clear amber body with a nice tan head. Aroma has roasted malt, caramel and dry fruit with chocolate. Flavor is sweet, nice roasted malt, dry fruit, dark chocolate and a pleasant bitterness. Medium body and a fine smooth and roasted aftertaste. A very tasty and pleasant beer, impressive at this low ABV. BeardedAvenger (1376) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Cask at the Rake, Borough. A vague malty basement aroma. An extremely dark chestnut. Thick off-white head. Creamy with a sour tang to the finish. Berries and coffee. Light bodied. Soft. Light carbonation. Astringent finish. A great mild. HogTownHarry (7401) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - MAR 23, 2017
September 14, 2015 at Tap East - cask handpull. Refractive deep burnt reddish copper, not much head - mottled creamy beige what there was (to be fair, pint was VERY full). Aroma simple and classic - light roast, mild herbal bitterness, no alcohol presence at all - dry, a bit nutty, not sweet - plenty of grain, with hints of rye and coffee beans. Taste follows right on ... it is a bit watery and still, finishes quick with a bit of baker’s chocolate dry earthiness in the finish - solid.
