What is Mild

Written by
Mild_Month_Large_Character
Milds are black to dark brown to pale amber in colour and come in a variety of styles from warming roasty ales to light refreshing lunchtime thirst quenchers. Malty and possibly sweet tones dominate the flavour profile but there may be a light hop flavour or aroma. Slight diacetyl (toffee/butterscotch) flavours are not inappropriate. Alcohol levels are typically low. 

Pale milds tend to have a lighter, more fruity aroma with gentle hoppiness. 

Dark milds may have a light roast malt or caramel character in aroma and taste. 

Scottish cask beers may have mild characteristics with a dominance of sweetness, smooth body and light bitterness. 

Original gravity: less than 1043 
Typical alcohol by volume: less than 4.3% 
Final gravity 1004 - 1010 
Bitterness 14 - 28 EBU
