Mild beer

Mild is generally a dark beer developed in the mid-nineteenth century as a cheaper and sweeter alternative to the dark ales and porters present at the time. For this reason mild was the most popular draught beer of this period. It should not be confused with small beer, an entirely different product. Once commonly found on tap, the length and breadth of Britain, mild has now almost completely disappeared from British pubs, although it has a strongholdin the English Midlands.
