First time I tried this beer is in Sam's harvest variety pack. This is an extremely good drinkable beer. It's perfect for someone who is into a lighter body beer, but wants a malt flavor. I'm not to into hoppy IPA's like everyone else, so I look for good solid beers without bitter qualities.

This has to be the most underrated beer in the entire Sam Adams library, and I'm not shy about how much I LOVE Sam Adams! There's just something about this beer, how perfectly red it is, how it's not bitter, not boring, not too sweet, and has an overall after taste that is very hard to describe from a novice reviewer, but veteran beer drinker. I really hope Sam Adams brings this back, and doesn't discard it like they do with so many other good beers, like Mighty Oak Ale.
If they sold 12 packs of this beer, I would have it regularly in stock!

4.19/5 rDev +22.9%
Aroma: Sugar cookies, figs/dates, bubble gum/juicy fruit, sweet bread / pastries
Taste: Roasted coffee, dark chocolate
Finish: Bready, Balanced, drinkable, refreshing
Mouthfeel: Light and airy
Overall: This beverage lures you in with a fruity appeal, and it reveals its dark flavor when its too late. Despite the role reversal, the drink slips past the tongue quite easily without any offense.

Appearance - Ruby color moderate head
Aroma - Malty Sweet, like visiting a bakery when cookies are baking.
Taste - Malty, Caramel, balanced with moderate hops.
Mouthfeel - Carbonation just right, not at all thin, silky smooth
Overall - Very well balanced, between malty sweet and English hops. A bit strong and sweet to be a British session ale. Overall quite good.

Pours a lively ruby in color with a pretty white head.
Nice bread-like aroma.
Lots of good malt flavors here. Bread, biscuit and even waffle? Good stuff.
A fine ale, though too strong to be a true session beer. My only issue with this brew is its strength: a mild should be more in the 3 percent range, according to the Oxford Companion to Beer, though some milds are as strong as this one.
Still, well worth your time.

Purchased as part of the 2013 fall pack. It pours a very nice reddish brown, and clear. Not ruby, but nice looking. An inch off white head that slowly fades over a few minutes.
The smell is malt and slight roast. The taste is malt, caramel, and nut. The nut is very light, and I can't pick up the hops other than a slight offset on the sweet of the caramel taste.
I am rating this highly, because it is a smoother, well balanced, very drinkable version of their red. I like their Irish red, and I would pay 25-50% per six more to have this available year round in place of that. Every facet is slightly better tasting and smoother than that already good beer.
