2.63/5  rDev -23.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: A very dark brown with head at first on pour, and then residual head on the edges and over the surface of the beer. Based on English Dark Mild ales, this is right in line w/ what this beer should look like.

Smell: A low but toasted malty smell. I don't smell very much alcohol either. I do really like this smell, but i should smell more malt.

Taste: I don't taste too much malt, or low hops. A high alcohol taste is definitely noticeable which is concurrent w/ the beer style. Not much body to this beer.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation, and not much bubbly head goes against what this beer is supposed to be. I can't stand highly carbonated beer, and the fact that this style is not supposed to be highly carbonated, just brings it down.

Overall: I think Sam Adams somewhat understands this beer style, but they can't finish. Taste wise there is no full bodied flavor, and the mouthfeel just ruins the beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I poured this beer and it has a reddish color body with a small tan head to it. The smell is a little sweet and has a malt aroma also. The taste has a little sweetness and malty notes and just a bit of hops on the end of the tongue. Mouthful is smooth and overall a good beer. I could see my self drinking this with some fish and chips in a pub.
