AndrewExcellent08 Dec 2012 I like Banks. I like their bitter. This mild was jolly good too. Hint of caramel, very low hopping and some watery body. Just want I want from a midland's mild.

ChrisEGood24 Apr 2012 The beer ran out as it was being poured, but the barmaid said she would check the next cask and put it on if it was ready. She connected it, checked the smell and clarity, then tasted it. She warned us that it was a bit fresh, it was quite good really and I had a couple of pints of it.

BlairAcceptable08 Jun 2011 Red/brown coloured, I was hoping for a dark mild. Sweet and malty with a slight tang that reminded me of old speckled hen. Not bad but not particularly memorable.
