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.

Pours a clear, light brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and good lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, slight pale malt, hint of caramel malt, and a hint of yeast. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, hops, slight pale malt, and a hint of yeast. Overall, a decent mild, with good blend, and appearance.

Served in a DFH ribbed glass.
A: Poured a crystal clear, bronze color with a sticky off-white head that clung to the glass.
S: Much more potent than I was expecting. Sour dough bread and Sam Adams signature profile in spades. Nice.
T: Goes down pretty smoothly and with a nice bitter slap of the palate at the end. Nothing earth shattering, but still a nice, semi-sweet, low-bodied mild.
M: Ridiculous lacing left on the glass, very smooth, and nothing drying at all. The carbonation bill was nice.
O: This one doesn't get high marks on here, but then again, very few examples in this style class seemed to have made an impression on anyone. Good stuff.
