Default Mass consumption

Okay so I nave 2 brews under my belt. An IPA that is currently on tap and a Pete’s Wicked brown clone that is in primary. Wife likes these types but was wondering if something lighter can be brewed that you could drink more of. I’m not set up for fermenting a lager but my basement might be cool enough in another month. Any recipe / style recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Brew a Bitter, Mild, Pale ale or a stout. they can all be brewed to low gravity and still have good flavor

I was original planning on a best bitter but thought that might be too strong but an ordinary bitter might be the way to go. What would be an example of a mild ale?

I brew lighter ABV's all the time.

Check my sig or the recipe drop down. I try and get around 3.5% - 4% on my blondes and wits. Good session beers.

Ain't nothing wrong with a good drinkable beer that doesn't knock your socks off after one-two glasses.

There aren't many Milds sold in the US, but sometimes you'll see a 'Golden', which is actually a Mild.

Sorry, forgot to mention that I'm not set up for AG but a Blonde Ale sounds real good although I’ve never tried one.

I used to drink Molson Golden back in my youth would that be comparable to a Mild Ale?

Probably not at all. Go for a Ordinary bitter. Great flavor and you can drink a bunch of it without getting hammered.

Wife likes the idea of an Ordinary Bitter.

Thanks everyone for the input.

A mild is a darker version of a Bitter
