Time to get Mild…!

18382706_1636537389722231_1940163154260525056_nMaggs’ Magnificent Mild, our latest new additon to the fridges, is one for the traditionalist beer drinker as well as those crafty folk who like to tip their hat to the old way of doing things. It is also the latest addition to our canon of award winning brews having just landed a silver in the GBBF Champion Beer of Britain Mild Category no less. Full of roast malt flavours coupled with a smooth mouth feel and gentle sweetness it is a silky drink indeed.

The term “mild” originally meant young beer, as opposed to “stale” aged beer with its resulting “tang”. It is a style of beer that originated in Britain in the 17th century or earlier and therefore is one of the oldest styles. It has a predominantly malty palate. Modern mild ales are mainly dark coloured due to the use of well-roasted malts or barley and are less hopped than bitters, often with a chocolatey character with nutty and burnt flavours.  Alcohol by volume (ABV) of 3% to 3.8% are usual, although there are (as always) exceptions!

Once sold in every pub, mild experienced a sharp decline in popularity after the 1960s and was in danger of completely disappearing. However, in recent years the explosion of microbreweries has led to a modest renaissance and an increasing number of milds are now being brewed.

If you prefer a malty taste and not all the explosively hoppy beers around then give this a crack!
