Apologies in advance to most site visitors outside the UK; you most likely won’t have access to a Marks & Spencer (M&S) near you. It’s a very well respected British high street clothing and food store and the company has teamed up with a number of brewers across the UK to create M&S-branded beers.
Mild is a traditional English style which you don’t see a great deal of nowadays. Milds are lightly hopped and in this case dark from the roasted malts, almost red. There’s a nice frothy head and not much of a nose. It looks like a classic old beer. The taste is smooth and nutty, not strong but a pleasant session ale and excellent value for money…if you’re in the UK, that is.
Look: Deep brown, auburn tinge
Taste: Smooth, lightly nutty
Our verdict: Light and a pleasant, old fashioned experience in a beer world seduced by hopsTweet
