Martin the MildmanExcellent07 May 2012 Still using the old pumpclips here with no mention of mild, but mild it most certainly is and in good form here. Little hop character and a sweetish biscuity malt character. Lingering malty finish. My score 16/20.
Martin the MildmanGood09 May 2011 Amber mild, mainly biscuity malt and a little appley fruitiness. Served too cold here so score 15/20 with B for quality.
Martin the MildmanExcellent03 May 2010 Dominated by caramelly biscuity malt leading to a dryish finish. My score 15/20.

The Windermere, South Kenton, Greater London

Martin the MildmanExcellent15 Sep 2011 Classic Midlands light mild, amber in colour, sweet and malty with only faint hop character. Quite a dry finish. My score 16/20.

ChrisEExcellent03 Jun 2010 The very end of the cask, but in superb condition. We would have had more if there had been any available.
ChrisEExcellent24 Mar 2010 A good session beer, which seems to be going back to its proper name of Mild in current publicity from the brewery. A refreshing pint that I would have preferred without a very tight sparkler.

IanAcceptable12 Jul 2009 Served through a tight sparkler so I only got about 3/4 of a pint. Burnt toast malts. Faint hop. Drinkable and interesting and glad to have it again.

StephenGood05 Jun 2010 The sparkler was an issue but they were happy to top it up like a pint of Guinness but well balanced good malts helped my dinner down very nicely thank you. A very good session ale.

Haworth Old Hall Inn, Haworth, West Yorkshire

ChrisEGood27 Mar 2010 The last one out of the cask, and it was very good. The lines were then cleaned and Brains SA Gold was made available.
