Pride & Joy Mild Ale

I’m very, very confused. All my experience of drinking English Milds has revolved around beers that look like Porters – dark, smooth, fairly thin but malty. This beer looks and drinks like a cross between an APA and a IPA. It’s OK, but I can’t imagine why this is classified as an English mild, it doesn’t match ANY of my expectations for the style at all.
*(Subsequently changed in the BA database to an APA – I was RIGHT!)
To summarize this beer, simply think of a weak IPA. Copper color, low carbonation, not much head and no lacing. Mild hops present, without much malt to balance it at all.
Finishes slightly metallic and dry.
I’m confused.
