Spotlight: Logan’s Mild

Mild ale?  What is that?  Well, mild ale is basically a low ABV brown ale that is light on alcohol but high in flavor.  Kind of an “extreme” session beer.  It’s an English style that nearly went extinct if not for the emergence of CAMRA and revival of English beers.  It’s practically impossible to find a nice English mild on tap anywhere in the U.S…..until now!

Logan’s Mild is a new beer that I’ll be putting on tap next week.  Toasty, chocolately, with a nice bit of caramel and amber malt, this easy-drinking session ale is nice and smooth, stopping short of roasty, with a sweet finish.  I used to enjoy a pint while working on my garden in Waterford–at only 3.5% ABV, it’s a great beer to have when you need to get on about your day.

Here’s a five gallon recipe, for the homebrewers among us:

    Stopped by Sunday after hitting outlets, and was disappointed your place was closed due to lack of beer. I guess that is a good problem to have, but as a craft beer fan it was upsetting your establishment was not open.

  2. Hope to try a “pint” next time I drop by.
