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!

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.
