Poured from a bottle on to a Sam Adams glass

A: Beer pours a gorgeous dark amber color with a two finger head that slowly shrinks into a pinky sized head. The beer had great head retention throughout the entire time.

S: I poured it at the recommended temperature but I thought the smell was a little weak. Once it warmed up a little you can pick up the malt and some faint roastyness. I wish the aroma was more obvious.

T: Roasty, sweet, malty, and a slight bitterness towards the end. Not a bad taste and the beer is very well balanced.

M: Very smooth. You can take a huge sip from this and you wont feel anything in your throat. Very smooth, very light, and highly drinkable.

O: It is a good beer to have when you want something refreshing. The fact that it's not heavy and is incredibly smooth make it a great session beer. I would probably rate this as an above average beer.

Brown, with red hues and a small white cap, this brew is very drinkable. The aoma is earthy and malty. Great, full malt flavor, but balanced and very drinkable. It is the kind of beer that you could enjoy in quantity on tap. The mouthfeel is relatively full...satisfying. Nice brew.

Ok my fave time of year is when fall seasonals start coming. Looks like Sam adams is kick starting it this year with their fall mixer which was purchased July 24 in my neck of woods. First up is ruby mild. Never had a mild so can't judge off of style. Good solid beer. No head retention. Solid malt backbone with little to no hops. Reminds me of bells amber without the subtle hops. Maybe that us how the style is intended. Good overall beer.

A smooth "reddish" ale that poored crisp. Not too much head (if any?), was supringly tasty. The beer tasted like a dummed down traditional red ale which I expected with the name "mild". Came in an autmn sampler pack which was suprisingly worth it. Would definitely recommend it if you are a fan of traditional ale or Red.

Clear red colored ale with a small tan colored head that doesn't last. Dark red color edging in to brown.

Smells malty with a some burnt sugar aroma, some caramel and a faint whiff of smoke. Fainter raisin and butter aromas.

Starts out malty ans semi-sweet. Flavors of burnt sugar and butter and some leather flavor from English style hops. Toffee and caramel flavors. Mild bitterness and some soda cracker malt.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall not a bad beer. Stronger in alcohol and malt that the traditional English version but still tasty.
