The Ruby Mild was included in a mix pack. Served in my SA perfect pint glass, the beer is amber with nice clarity. It has an off-white head and clingy head.

It has mild grains and red apple on the nose.

Taste is slightly sweet and grainy. A bit of hops add a nice midlevel bite. It is balanced and easy to pair with non-spicy food.

The mouth is slightly thick and clingy.

Ruby Mild is what it is called...mild indeed. Sam Adams only knows how to make them right.

I was very impressed with the color of beer, as advertised a red tinge mixed with a dark caramel color that has nice highlights. The smell is not overpowering of malt or hops, with a mouthfeel that is well...mild. I thought it would blow me away, but it was just good, plain good, which isn't bad. Anyway, I thought the mild taste of ale would be something appealing to me but it wasn't as much as I thought. It wasn't bad, mind you, it just didn't tingle my toes. Overall, it is an outstanding beer and one I have tried again and again.

Appearance - Medium amber. Clear. Short, off-white head. Not persistent.

Smell - Light caramel malt. Nutty and toasty.

Taste - Sweet but fairrly light caramel malts. Mainly toast, nuts, toffee. A little fruit.

Mouthfeel - Medium.

Overall - Per category, this is a pretty unobjectionable beer. Flavor is pleasant and light enough to enjoy all day.
