Hand pulled at the Criterion, Leicester. Black, with ruby hints. Thin bodied, with no head. Extremely strongly flavoured Mild - sensational for the ABV. A rich burst of coffee flavour, with a sharpness and contrasting sweetness within. Very good indeed - a great start for this brewery. cgarvieuk (26089) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2010

pint pulled at The Maltings: dark muddy brown in color with a tan head. aroma was roasted with very nice floral hops, slightly perfumy. flavor is roasted and very nicely bitter on the finish leaning towards a stout. slightly watery in the mouth though. nevertheless, really nice mild. johndoughty (5566) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2016
Bottle.Black with a small head that dissipated quickly leaving virtually no head. Slightly malty but lacks body. Bought as Wood Farm. My first from this brewery. imdownthepub (15395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2005
Cask Conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival ’05. Black beer with a bubbly malt head. Highly flavoured mild with a roasted chocolate base. Thin and drinkable with a late hop finish. Moorish and very good for the style.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Harbury BF. My first beer of this rather quaint but very enjoyable and well run small fest in a village hall. Thanks to Glen (or more correctly Sandra) for saving us seats! A black mild with a nice white head. The aroma had a little roasted malt, some smoke and a little chocolate. The taste is dry and mild. Again a little roasty and some smoky chocolate. A nice mild. wheresthepath (2405) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2009
[Cask at the Nag’s Head, Reading] Murky dark brown with a small, loose white head and a very slight fizz. Initial flavour of chocolate and smoke, with some deep fruitiness lurking behind. Autumn leaves and earth in the finish. It’s flavoursome, yet it somehow manages to still be light and refreshing. A good mild this. harrisoni (19413) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2007
Cask gravity at Pembury Tavern. Very dark brown/ruby with lasting beige head. Very tasty mild, bit of almost whiskyish malt. Bit nutty and good roasted flavours. Actually got a bit of grapefruit hop. Good mild. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2007
Blackfriers. Aroma is nutty, caramel malts, chocolate malts coming through slightly, though i think this is a caramel mild, hints of floral fuggels? Taste is again a bag of roasted barley with caramel dominating, noteable bittering hops throughout, a very drinkable mild indeed.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2009 1) The Crown, Nuneaton. Dark ruby. Wet Hobnob, whole hop mustiness and toffeeish malt. Big hop presence for a Mild, but I’m not complaining. Cheeky one.
2) Cask, back at The Crown. Earthy and balsamic with insinuating chocolate black cherry and soil. Better the first time.
