This was very dark, with a big bubbled beige head. The palate is lovely soft and very malty, not that nutty to be honest, there is a hint of coffee on the finish. A great quaffable brew, could drink loads of this. Martin243 (1201) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2011
I probably haven’t drunk a mild for 30 years, so I thought I’d stretch my parameters: well, it looks good: pours deep ruby red with a beige head. However,I’m getting a rubbery vinegar aroma, and a taste more mouth dryingly sour than nutty. Not really enjoying this, perhaps it doesn’t travel over the Pennines? Perhaps theres a reason I haven’t drunk mild for 30 years. The further I get down the glass, the more actively unpleasant I find this, it’s going down the drain.

Bottle. Too cold to start, witjh some chocolate, old wood shavings, butter and hazelnuts on the aroma and flavour. When warmer it did not improve much. Watery, not a mild out of this world. nickel (1128) - UKRAINE - OCT 1, 2015
Aroma of roasted malt and nuts.
Crist and tart. Nutty taste. Realy good beer

Some good milds around these days. This is not one of them. Very dark, with a lovely toffee coloured head, which is gone after about 20 seconds. Light palate, little aroma. Taste has chocolate and sweet malt - not very nutty. Deu (948) - Nantes, FRANCE - JAN 31, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 500ml bottle at the brewery lane in Dublin, Ireland. Smokie aroma but I found it a little tasteless. I don’t really recommend it. Y
