Mild ale is a style with a long, sometimes confusing history. It’s rare to find commercially brewed milds in the US, so homebrewers who want a pint of mild often need to brew it themselves. Luckily, it’s a relatively quick and inexpensive style to brew at home. Mild ale can also serve as a malty canvas upon which to experiment with flavors and ingredients typically associated with higher alcohol styles.
