Technically speaking, (and by that we mean “beerspeak”), an English Mild belongs to the family of English Brown Ales.  There are Northern English Brown Ales, Southern English Brown Ales, and the English Mild, which we suppose, comes right up the middle. We once read a statement that the English Mild is “readily suited to drinking in quantity”- While we always encourage responsible use, we get where the author was coming from! This beer is a rich brown in colour, but light in body with a slight malt accent, and only enough bitterness to provide a bit of balance. If a darker beer scares you, try this one…it will cure your fears and might even turn you into an advocate. Now on the growlers, till it’s gone.
