My LHBS has this kit on special during March so I was thinking about trying it out. It's not a style I've had before but after doing some reading I'm intrigued. Any opinions on the kit specifically or the style generally?
I don't know about the kit in particular, but a mild is a very nice drink. It is not something you can usually find in America, so if you want to try it, you have to brew your own! It is usually pretty dark, but not strong or heavy. ABV usually around 3.5 % or so. A good lunch time beer I have Orfy's Mild Mannered Ale planned for an upcoming (date TBD) brew.
