Mid-Mountain Mild Ale

From Wikipedia:

The term "mild" originally meant young beer or ale, as opposed to "stale" aged beer or ale with its resulting "tang". In more recent times, it has been interpreted as having a low specific gravity or being "mildly hopped".

This style of beer originated in Britain in the 17th century or earlier has a predominantly malty palate. Modern mild ales are mainly dark colored with an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 3% to 3.6%, although there are lighter hued examples as well as stronger examples reaching 6% ABV and higher.
