Mild ale is a simple beer to make, but an extremely difficult style to pin down. Although light in body and alcohol, it is complex and full of flavor.

    This review is from: Mild Ale: History, Brewing, Techniques, Recipes (Classic Beer Style) (Paperback)

    While traveling in the UK years ago I entered a pub and asked the publican to pour me one of his best. He poured me a mild ale. I was really surprised. It had a wonderful flavor and wasn’t at all mild. Ever since then I’ve been hunting for another purveyor of mild ales. It’s not a type of ale pursued by the American brewing establishment.

    At last, this book presents the history of mild ales and is the first source I’ve found that explains why some really aren’t that mild. It’s a lovely history and hopefully will rekindle an interest in this dying style.

    I hope some microbrewery will make a mild ale where I live (Colorado), but until then this book has given me a number of recipes to try. I’ve been home brewing for years and have tried making a few mild ales with moderate results. The book addresses the types of ingredients that are needed to recreate this style. Armed with the knowledge in this book, I look forward to brewing some mild ales of my own.

    Mild ales are a style of ale missing in today’s microbrew marketplace, one I feel merits a rediscovery by the brewing community. This book should be in the library of anyone seriously interested in brewing ales, especially British ales. Excellent.

    This is a fantastic book on Mild Ale. I spent several years living in the West Midlands of the UK, and developed a taste for Mild Ale, but after moving back to Australia I could not find a local beer like it. I started brewing my own beer 12 months ago to try and get something like what I used to drink in the UK, but have been frustrated by lack of recipes and infomation avaliable locally. This book really hits the spot, it gives some history and back story to the subject without becoming boring. The stlye of writing is light and easy to read, the history is interspersed with technical info on brewing but neither overpowers the other. You can tell that the author is really passionate about the subjet, and has reserched it meticulously, this book answered nearly all my questions on brewing mild ale.
