At last, this book presents the history of mild ales and is the first source I've found that explains why some really aren't that mild. It's a lovely history and hopefully will rekindle an interest in this dying style.
I hope some microbrewery will make a mild ale where I live (Colorado), but until then this book has given me a number of recipes to try. I've been home brewing for years and have tried making a few mild ales with moderate results. The book addresses the types of ingredients that are needed to recreate this style. Armed with the knowledge in this book, I look forward to brewing some mild ales of my own.
Mild ales are a style of ale missing in today's microbrew marketplace, one I feel merits a rediscovery by the brewing community. This book should be in the library of anyone seriously interested in brewing ales, especially British ales. Excellent.
Given the manner of serving milds in the UK, this book also was light on the details of casks. Honorable mention at best, which is sad because if you search on YouTube you can find a wealth of information that is more informative that what is contained here.
Overall a nice intro to the style, but this book is limited in the guidance it can provide brewers who really wish to really dive deep into the style.
