3.54/5  rDev n/a
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark translucent brown amber with a thick, fine-bubbled head thanks to nitrogenation. Aroma is malty and not remarkable. Smooth, malty flavor has a nice hoppy undertone, as well as hints of caramel and cloves. Nitrogen bubbling gives it a silky smoothness akin to properly poured Guinness, and it has a good edge going down. (332 characters)

3.21/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear, mahogany-hued body with a smallish, ivory-colored head. Light lacing.

Smell: Very, very minor grain note set beside a very, very minor caramel note.

Taste: A faint touch of grainy malts and caramel sweetness. Big sip of still mineral water. Extremely subdued hop bitterness. And we're done!

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-low carbonation.

Drinkability: By no means is it a traditional English mild (I don't feel that was the intention), but as a generalized mild beer it's okay, if a bit simplistic in its approach. (543 characters)

Had the cask version of this, apparently they're putting it on the nitro-tap after the cask kicks.

Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a one-finger foamy white head. The head sticks around for a while leaving decent lacing.

Smells faintly of caramel malt and bitter hops. There's not a whole lot of aroma going on here.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Caramel malt flavors with a hint of roasted malts and a mildly bitter ending. Again, flavors aren't very strong here.

Mouthfeel is good. It's a bit watery, but the carbonation is subdued and it goes down smoothly.

Drinkability is alright. I liked one of these, but I wasn't excited about getting another one.

Overall this is an alright beer, but there's just not a whole lot of flavor in the cask version of this. (775 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured a dark coppery brown. No head by the time I got it, just a thin ring around the top.
Light aroma, but did pick up some dark chocolate, sweet caramel and a note of earthy hops.
Fuller flavors than aromas. First got some dark chocolate/coffee flavors. The sweetness faded into the background and the hops were fairly minimal too.
Medium bodied. A little oily and light on the carbonation.
Don't know what the ABV was, but it was low enough that I didn't feel light-headed after 2 of these. Decent enough flavors to drink all night.
Probably not a traditional mild, but a good beer that is worth trying. (607 characters)
