Milds are one of my personal favorite styles; a well made Mild tastes so good and the low ABV means I can enjoy more than a few! Recently I had success with tossing 2 oz. of Citra in the secondary for a quick 4 day drop hop. Creates a beautiful citrus aroma and flavor that follows up with a toasty malt backbone!
Although lower on the ABV scale our Mild still packs a ton of flavor similar to traditional Brown Ales. This means you should enjoy it with hearty dishes such as Beef Stew, Roasted Pork, and Grilled Sausages.
