>The May Midweek Mild

>

See what I did there?

Seeing as though CAMRA have deemed May the month of Mild, here’s what I can recommend if you feel like sampling the wonders of that dying breed, Mild.
Personally, I’ve been drinking a lot of Leed’s Midnight Bell. Not only is it a gorgeous pint full of dark fruit and roasted malt goodness but it’s the best beer Leeds produce – in my humble opinion. Leeds are becoming more popular across the region and if you see Midnight Bell up for grabs, nab yourself a pint.
Another old standby is Timothy Taylor’s Golden Best. Landlord gets the most press these days but Golden Best is a wonder – light and incredibly moreish. I waxed lyrical about TT’s Dark Mild here. Again, keep an eye out, but head toward Keighley and you’ll soon see all those Smith’s pub signs transform into the familiar gold and green of Timothy Taylor.
I’ve chosen beers that should be relatively available (In Yorkshire, at least) – but take the plunge in May. Support your brewers.

Have a mild.

  1. >”Toasted malt goodness” is right up my alley. I need to avoid the headachey uber-hopped beers and chest hair-inducing Belgians for awhile.
