Wiki

From wikipedia.com:

Mild ale is a low-gravity beer with a predominantly malty palate that originated in Britain in the 1600s or earlier. Modern mild ales are mainly dark coloured with an abv of 3% to 3.6%, though there are lighter hued examples, as well as stronger examples reaching 6% abv and higher.

The term mild originally meant young beer or ale as opposed to "stale" aged beer or ale with its resulting "tang". In more recent times it has been interpreted as denoting "mildly hopped".

This particular English mild style beer is made with pilsner malts and Saaz hops.

   Today’s beer review, Yazoo Brewing‘s Summer Ale, comes with an added bonus:  20% of the proceeds from the sale of this beer are donated to the Community Fund to help rebuild Nashville after our May floods.   (The artwork on the bottle, by the way, was donated by a Nashville graphic designer, Derrick Castle.) I first learned Yazoo’s Summer Ale was coming back in April, when I guest blogged a post about local springtime beers for OnNashville.com.  …
