    A "Marmite" beer indeed. I think my reaction was more to do with having expected a MILD only to be assaulted by lots of New World hoppiness. If it had been described
    accurately, I either wouldn't have ordered it or would at least have known what to expect.
    If they had just called it Vienna Dark I think it would have avoided all this as although some Darks are milds it isn't really a definitive alternative name for it.

    The New World hoppiness would probably have drawn me to it!!

    Sam Smiths Dark MILD (keg) 2.8% here
    Blue Cow Best Bitter 4.2%
    Milestone Lions Pride 3.8%
    Oldershaw Grantham Dark (MILD) 3.6%
    Timothy Taylor Golden Best (MILD) 3.5% here
    Woodfordes Wherry 3.8% here
    Earl Soham/Cliff Quay Bitter 3.4% here
    Nethergate Ruby Ale (Bottled) 4.2%
    Nethergate Old Growler (porter) (bottled) 5.5%
    Nethergate Growler Bitter 3.9% here
    Marstons Pedigree 4.5%
    Blue Monkey 99 Red Baboons 4.2% here after catching a train to the Peak District - thirsty work, that train riding.
    Oakwell Dark MILD 3.4% here
    Thornbridge Black Harry (MILD) 3.9% here
    Thwaites Nutty Black (MILD) (bottled) 3.8%
    Bakewell Swift Nick 3.8% here
    Salamander Tree Hugger (porter) 4.8%
    Sawbridgeworth Selhurst Park Flyer 3.8%

    As usual, although I enjoyed the Wherry in Norfolk, and the Old Growler bottled porter was very good indeed, the Beer of the Week for me was at the Blake after returning to Sheffield, a toss up between the Tree Hugger and the Selhurst Park Flyer. I'll go for the Sawbridgeworth Selhurst Park Flyer in celebration of W*tf*rd losing to Crystal Palace at Wembley.
    sounds like a lot of cycling.

    I can't add much to the 'Vienna Mild' debate, having not tried it myself, but what I do know is that the Hobson's MILD I enjoyed in the Old Joint Stock on the Bank Holiday Sunday was perfection in a glass. Shame it rarely (never?) makes it down to London, as I've had some rubbish milds this year.

    I have noticed the Blue Monkey -99 red baboons being described as a mild for May in some pubs.Have drank it a few times when it first appeared but don't think it was a mild.
