May is Mild month

May is designated as Mild month by CAMRA. Mild Ales can be categorized as Pale or Dark in color and in general are an average of 3.5% ABV. The BJCP categorizes Mild Ales (11A) in the English Brown Ale Category (11).

Both import and domestic versions are commercially available. I know Kalona Brewing Company has a mild on tap or maybe it is now on their handpump.

If anyone is interested in exploring this style, brew a mild and bring it to the May meeting (Tuesday, May 13)

April Meeting
