Mild (Mild and Brown Ale)

A low-gravity beer with a predominantly malty palate that originated in Britain in the 17th century, possibly earlier. Modern Mild Ales are mainly dark colored with an abv of 3% to 3.6%, although there are lighter hued examples, as well as stronger examples reaching 6% abv and higher. The term "Mild" originally meant young beer or ale, as opposed to "stale" aged beer, with its resulting "tang". In more recent times, "Mild" has been interpreted as being "mildly hopped".
