Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. Dark brown color with a huge beige head. Aroma of malt, dark bread, a bit of toastiness, nutty notes, a bit of caramel and some earthy hops. Sweetish malty flavor with some toastiness, caramel hints and a dry finish, slightly bitter and earthy. Light to medium-bodied. beerandbeyond (1009) - ISRAEL - JUL 5, 2013

Ashy nose, with nuts, mild roast, earth and faint cocoa.

Over carbonated, dry, light and overall OK. deanso (10101) - 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 Tesco Bradford. Black colour with a large frothy tan coloured head with lacing on the glass. Sweet malt aroma with maybe a hint of nut. Smooth and silky with a taste of malt. BrotherLogic (252) - California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle bought from Premier in Sheffield. Pours a dark red with little head, light aroma, initially quite weak tasting but settled down over the course of drinking. Pleasant but not astonishing. piscator34 (2647) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottled sample. Brownish-red in colour with moderate carbonation. Faint aromas of pale malt, minerals, orchard fruit and vanilla. Watery on the palate with notes of toffee, toasted nuts, molasses, and chocolate powder. A bit too watery and simplistic, but not all that bad either. Average.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Very bubbly deep ruby pour, fairly large frothy tan/light brown lasting head. Fairly roasty aroma, I get more tart raisin than nutty character, but it’s not bad, not too sour, not overly sweet. The taste is ... yeah, pretty sour - like rhubarb or unripe red currants, the sourness quickly overpowers the lightly nutty/chocolate malt - then it all fades away even more quickly - sip by sip: light roast----sour!-- Light, airy, ephemerally acidic mouthfeel, solidly carbonated ---- I didn’t hate it.
