This makes an incredibly authentic English pub mild. You might think it a bit watery, but this is mild ale so give it a break. It has loads of flavor if you serve it at proper temp. and condition. The mouthfeel could be increased by using a full cup of molasses, but this is not necessary (if you do this, cut back on Pale malt to maintain appropriate gravity).
