The Incredible Mild

Mild is the parting year, and sweet…

This week marks the release of the second installment of The Incredible Mild Ale. Made using a process known as parti-gyle brewing, the Incredible Mild comes from the same wort as our Old Redhooker, which will spend a bit of time in our new barrels, and then be around the Sixpoint market soon as well.

The mild is its baby brother – a dry, delicate beer that carefully balances sweet malt and light English hops and is designed to be drank by the pint. Its full body and low alcohol make the mild a satisfying yet sessionable brew that’s sweet but never cloying.

For this edition we’ve ‘capped’ the mash with crystal malt, which provides an extra dose of clean, nutty, caramel sweetness to the brew. Using English hops and the parti-gyle method still utilized by English brewers, the Incredible Mild is an homage to English brewing tradition. With a nose of raw honey and earthy hops, and a backdrop of subtle nutty-toffee notes, it has a depth of flavor rare in a 4.7% ABV brew.
