Herefordshire Business News: The Sun Inn in Leintwardine pub backs CAMRA's 'Mild in May' campaign
12:55pm Thursday 3rd May 2012 in Business
A LEINTWARDINE pub is supporting a campaign to go mild in may.
The Sun Inn is backing Herefordshire CAMRA's campaign for pubs to stock at least one mild throughout May for local pub-goers to try.
Once sold in every pub mild experienced a fall in popularity after the 1960s and was in danger of completely disappearing.
But in recent year the explosion of microbreweries has led to an increasing number of milds being brewed.
Alcohol levels in Mild are typically low and malty and possibly sweet tones dominate the flavour profile but there may be a light hop flavour or aroma.
The Sun is running a Hobsons Brewery Mild in May competition and stocking Hobsons Mild, the winner of the CAMRA West Midlands Beer of the Year 2011, as part of the campaign.
