Old favorites:

Boston Lager
Octoberfest
Harvest Pumpkin
Hazel Brown
Latitude 48

And debuting:

Ruby Mild

I havenít seen this on the shelves yet, Iím getting my information from the Internet.

I like the looks of this. I could see going back to this well a few times this fall. Really enjoy all five of the returning beers. The new beer looks inoffensive. They didnít feel a need to shanghai a shandy and two fruit beers in there (I mean, sure, itís fall, but coastal wheat was once in their winter mix pack.). ;) Iím glad that they avoided the Irish Red this year, also, which isnít a bad beer, I had one today from a six pack, it was just getting a little much the way it seemed to be included in the same two mix packs every year.

The only negative is that I keep hoping against hope that their rauchbier will re-emerge, and it didnít, but I donít know how realistic that hope was. Weíve only seen it once.

Anyway, Iím not complaining, Iím excited to see (Well, read of, havenít seen it yet) a Sam Adams mix pack I can embrace again. Sam Adams Octoberfest was the first craft beer I really got into and I always want to like these mix packs, but I havenít been able to bring myself to get this yearís summer one yet and have skipped a few others in recent years. This one looks like a winner.

Anyone had the Ruby Mild yet? If so, how is it?

Charm: it looks like ruby mild is not in the database yet. Feel free to do the first rating if you try it soon!

Ruby Mild. What the fuck. Sounds like a gal George Jones banged back in the 70s.

The ruby mild is supposed to be based on recipes for mild ales from the 1800ís.

I enjoyed the Ruby Mild. It was just the correct balance of malts without being syrupy sweet or light. I would buy this regularly.

Hopefully more so than the lambic was based on a recipe for a lambic.
