Malt accented, typically little or no hop flavour or aroma. Usually medium to dark brown in colour though many English examples are almost black with caramel often added for colouring as well as favouring purposes. Mild refers to no or limited hop bitterness/ aroma. Still very popular in the North- West and Midland areas of England where it is usually between 3 to 4% ABV and preferred with a good head. There are examples of stronger versions of the style, but rarely over 5-6%.
