COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mild ales rose to popularity in the 1800s as the refreshing brew of choice for English railway laborers. This modern mild, a smooth, sweet, malty brew with a hint of ruby color, is still a satisfying choice for the end of a long day.

Cheers!

The Ruby Mild pours a clear reddish orange with a tan head that lasts a good while and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is dark fruit and caramel. The flavor is raisin and caramel. Overall this is decent.

Bottle. Pours light brown with ruby highlights and creamy off-white head. Aroma is toasted malts, dates, raisins, light floral notes, toffee, and light mixed nuts. Flavor is dry malt base with some toasted nuts, faint hop bitterness, and faint dark fruit esters; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

12oz bottle, courtesy of Sam Adams. Thanks! I (and Ali) actually found this one a lot more pleasant to drink than some of their recent releases, with a slightly timid nose (cardboard, wet malt) that might have some caramel in their or might not, but never materializes much beyond that. This tastes good though, there’s a nice core red fruitiness, a bit of acidity on the edges, ideal carbonation (which I expect from these folks, as for Sierra Nevada and others), and just a nice bit of actual caramel in there. Not overly heavy; light bitterness, but very nice to drink.

Another unremarkable offering from Sam Adams. Seems to be the norm these days. Nothing stands out here and nothing to even note good or bad. Just blah. --you've been Dubbed.

Bottle gift from SJ. This was an easy drinking brew. What I liked was the notes of brown sugar and caramel malts with a tiny hint of hop. It was refreshing.

Red-brown pour with a tan head. The aroma and flavor have some toffee and caramel notes as well as a hint of nuttiness. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

bottle. Amber red with small head. I’ve not had a lot of this style, but this is surprisingly good. Full flavor,with nuts and caramel very smooth. Very mild hop bite.

Bottle. Mild barley malt aroma with a small hint of sweet fruit. Pours a brownish red color. Taste has a nice sweet malt on the front with a nice lager finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Light smells of caramel and hints of dough. This is light on the nose. A nice reddish tinted brown colored body. This is softly carbonated. A little hint of toasted nuts complement the light caramel. Nicely done.
