The Session # 3 cometh: Think Mild

The SessionDon’t forget to stock up on some Mild ale for Friday.

What’s Mild, you ask, and why Friday?

Jay Brooks tells us everything we need to know about the elusive style. May is “Mild Month” in the UK and Friday is Mild day for a monthly virtual gathering of beer bloggers that we call The Session.

If you are a blogger we welcome you to join us – just post on Friday and send Jay a link. If you are a beer drinker, then lay in some Mild or have one (or two, that’s the advantage of low alcohol beers) at your local pub, then join us for a little reading.

    “and for Dark Mild, IBUs of 10-24, SRM of 17-34 and ABV of 3.2-4%.

    “deep copper to dark brown (often with a red tint)” for dark mild. Both are dominated by malt favors with very low bittering discernible and allow for some low levels of diacetyl (butterscotch). The dark mild may also include some licorice or “roast malt tones.”

    So, will I be shunned if I choose a nice Guinness Draught for participation? 😉

    Sorry Stonch.

    Steve. Shunning is simply bad beer etiquette, so of course not.

    The conversation about this is ongoing in Jay’s comments.
