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 aroma of this beer seemed to be some kind of fruit, maybe cherry. It has a good taste. Overall a good beer and enjoyable to drink. Would have again.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 Tasted from 12oz brown bottle into a nonic pint glass, part of the 2013 fall seasonal mix-pack. It poured a clear, deep reddish brown colour with thin but long-lasting beige foam, even a little lace. Pleasing appearance. I love Mild Ale and this possesses most of the true-to-style characteristics: a nicely balanced malt-sweetness to marmalade-y hops bitterness, bready, toasty, biscuity, nutty, caramelly, faintly fruity. Light body, average carbonation, malty aftertaste. Smooth at first but less so as it warmed, sadly. I love candy-sweet English crystal malts, this had some of the distincly burnt grain/soy sauce aspects of US crystal malt, but that’s a minor quibble. I’d definitely buy 6-packs of this regularly, if only they offered it.

This Sam Adams follows the usual path of quality and great beer. I found the taste of this beer to be very light and pleasant to drink. The beer had a balanced and light head. The bitterness of the brew was a bit fruity which highlighted the grains. This is a great beer to enjoy on an warm afternoon. I’d recommend pairing it with a nice steak and potatoes.

I enjoy this beer. Great malt forward stable true to the original taste and feel. One of six different fall beers in the 2013 Harvest 12 pack. I would purchase as an everyday drinker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
