Aden Mild (“A1”)
Beer style: Mild
Target ABV: 3.0%
Ready for drinking: from 12st October 2013
I’ve had a go at brewing a “mild”. It’s a old English style of ale, generally pretty low in alcohol, lightly hopped and quite dark. It was supposedly the most popular style of beer in the 1950s but rarely found in pubs now. The aim is to get a beer that is nicely balanced, has real depth of flavour but is only 3% ABV or so. A challenge indeed!
I’ve named this brew after my newly born nephew. Congratulations Connor and Grace! Hopefully by the time he’s old enough to try it I’ll have developed the perfect recipe.
Comments on the beer very welcome indeed. Just click below and tell me what you think.
