The English-style brown ale ranges from dryer (Northern English) to sweeter (Southern English) maltiness. Roast malt tones (chocolate, nutty) may sometimes contribute to the flavour and aroma profile. Hop bitterness is very low to low, with very little hop flavour and aroma. Known for rich and advanced malt aroma and flavour without centering too much on hops, the English-style mild is extremely sessionable and food-friendly.
