COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal (May). Only available on draught.

This ruby coloured light mild imparts a delicate hop fragrance on the nose.

Originally brewed in 1995 to celebrate the 21st anniversary of this local women’s team of Morris Dancers. Part of CAMRA’s ‘Mild in May’ initiative.

Knots of May Light Mild has a lower alcohol content and a deep ruby colour, with a delicate hop fragrance. Our own spring water and yeast strain help ensure that the brew has the distinctive Harvey character.

EdKing (2607) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2017
On cask in The Harp. Clear chestnut brown beer with a big foamy off white head. Nose is nutty, caramel malt, fruity. Taste is very tangy nutty, dryish Hop, caramel. Very little of the Harvey’s character. Not sure I’d call this a mild either.

ThirstyBird (2949) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2016
On cask @ Mitre Tavern, Brighton. Pours a clear ruby color with light tan head. The smell is toasted malt, hints of caramel and fruit. The taste is toasted malt, fruit, some herbs while ending dry with some roast. Light in body, oily with mild carbonation.

Euroscooper (448) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2016
On cask at the Maltings, York. Served ruby and clear, with a moderate head. Has a malty taste, but a subtle fruity sweetness come through. Has notes of plums and blackberries. Hardly any bitterness at all. A proper mild

3.5
Scopey (14946) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Cask at the Lord Nelson, Brighton. It pours clear deep amber with a small, bubbly white head. The aroma is earthy, wood, brown bread, toasted nuts and a distinct hint of egg sandwich. The taste is smooth, bitter, earthy, wood, leather, spicy action and brown bread with a short finish. Light body and soft carbonation. Pretty good going for a 3% mild.

3.5
Erzengel (8857) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2016
On cask @ Mitre Tavern, Brighton. Very smooth and mild beginning. Round with bread you hints. Smooth with a dry malty ale body. Smooth mild aftertaste. Great!

ladnewton (1975) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2013
Cask at the Harp, London on 4th May 2013. Copper with off-white head and initial lacing. Richly malty aroma. Grassy herbiness in-mouth with hazelnut nuttiness. Bitter grassiness and biscuit malts in finish. Zingy mouthfeel.

Lifeless flat pale copper with slight eggy aroma. Biscuity malt and not much else.

3.2
Svesse (8613) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2010
(Cask at Royal Oak, Borough, London, 19 May 2010) Reddish amber colour with brief, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with bread, dark fruit and the usual, slightly sulphury Harveys character. Fruity, malty taste with notes of dried fruit, sulphur, slightly biscuity malt and hints of yeast. Thin body, balanced sweetness, moderate bitterness. Easy drinking beer with lots of brewery character.

2.7
chriso (7548) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Royal Oak, Borough, May 2007. Copper colour with no head. Light biscuity malt aroma. More soft, light malt in the flavour. Touch of tangy hop too. Not packed with flavour. Has a little trademark Harveys woodiness on the palate and a subtle sharp tang on the finish. I know that people can get excited about seeing a rare light mild but, to be honest, it didn’t do a lot for me. Very easy drinking of course, which I guess is what it’s all about.

3.2
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2009
A Mes rate: cask in the Brewery Sampling Room.
Very pale coloured for a mild. Lots of sulphur. Nicely bitter. Lightly sweet on the malt with some hints of caramel. A little more bitterness in the finish. Agree with Steve that it probably wasn’t ready yet.
