Bottled, 500ml from Waitrose, Witney. Black with cream head. Thinner than the cask version, there is still a darkly roasted malt though but masked a little by a wet cardboard type flavour, some fruitiness. Lacks some depth. Average.Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2011

Bottled, 500ml from Morrisons in Banbury. Black with brown head. Smooth and fruity flavours, some liquorice and hints of chocolate amalgamate into a very decent bottled mild. Easy drinking while retaining flavours.
A dark mahoganny brown ale with a thin dark moka head. In aroma, very nice caramel overlayed with moka coffee and light creamy vanilla. In mouth, a soft sweet nutty malt with light coffee notes, a bit lighter than expected but very quaffable. Bottle from MLCC on Pembina Highway. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 17, 2013

Mild ale, dark with a red glow, no head. Has a slightly sweet, slightly nutty aroma, less than its name would suggest. The same can be said for its taste. deanso (10072) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - JUL 23, 2013

Thick creamy tan head. Clear black pour. A nice brew. I never drunk milds 20 years ago as they were almost extinct when I started drinking. I’m glad the style is making a comeback due to Camra. A nice session beer.
bottle from Waitrose Sidmouth (08/2010). Dark brown colour, large off-white head. Malty, caramel, fudge, raisins. Some shy hops in the lingering finish.A very good beer. jmgreenuk (9333) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle from Tesco’s. Poured a cloudy murky dark brown with a thin bubbly tan head. The aroma is weak roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter, nutty and with roasted malt. The bitterness lingers for a while in the finish for a very refreshing beer. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2009
Bottled. A dark ruby coloured beer with a mountainous gushing whitish head. I was convinced that after a ten or so minute pour this beer would turn out to be infected, but it as surprisingly good. Smoke and hops in the aroma with chocolate, fruit, a hint of sourness and roast in the mouth. Bottled Conditioned milds rarely wotk, but this does.
