    Oakham Citra - very nice!

    Greyfriars Afghan Pride - I wonder how well this would go down with the Taliban?
    Maggs Mild is a very good Mild and by far the best thing they do, agree with everything else you say here.

    I think it should be Afghan Pale rather than pride
    The best mild I have tasted and have drank it on many occasions is Maggs Magnificent Mild although they have now dropped the Magnificent from its name.If you see it try it.

    Shocked to see Salopian -Darwins original on that list.Tried it (again) two weeks ago and found it pretty bland.

    I've tried seven off the list:

    Salopian- Darwin's Origin.
    Five Points - Pale.
    Ulverston - Laughing Gravy.
    Vocation - Heart & Soul.
    Bingham - Vanilla Stout.
    Fernandes - Malt Shovel Mild.
    Oakham - Citra.

    I'm lucky enough to drink the latter two pretty regularly. The Citra is on permanently at the Black Rock, Wakefield and the MSM is regularly rotated at the Fernandes Tap. It's definitely one of my favourite milds. I'm pleased for brewer Steve Hutchinson, who got a bronze back in 2013, before getting the silver this year.
