Occasionally I’ve written that I only really like Milds at lunchtime and I know how hard our CAMRA friends push Mild as a drink that needs celebrating, but on the whole I find this style of beer totally uninspiring, boring, uninteresting.
Latimer’s Mild is a nicely made, well balanced beer, that does exactly what you’d expect from the style.
But it’s so dull.
There’s a little chocolate and a touch of digestive biscuit, a hint of raisins and the slightest leafy brown crunch from the hops.
The finish is soft and gentle and almost apologetic and it disappears off your tongue pretty much immediately.
I have to say it.
If I never drank another Mild I wouldn’t feel the loss.
