COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Breakwater HMS Minnow - Vintage Mild Ale Yup we love mild. Mild, that abused, down trodden and often looked back on with rose tinted specs. “Eh? Mild what?” you may ask, bewildered. Once Britain’s most popular beer style, mild ale, as it developed in the 20th century, whilst not always the way, evolved to be a low-strength (around 3%), very-lightly hopped beer, that became a staple working mans drink; you could sink a few and still get up for their shift the next morning. Around the UK, you’d see Mild available in light and dark versions with the encompassing diversity of flavours; chocolate or liquorice notes from roasted grains in a dark mild. This is vintage, drinking beer. I remember the great John Keeling, of Fuller’s fame, saying that, "for a beer style to become fashionable it’s got to die completely." - whether mild is dead, I’ll leave to you... This isn’t a revival brew, this isn’t an attempt at something modern - just something we’d like to drink. This is all about malts. Dry, roasty toasty, with a little sweetness. (contains Lactose)
