Samuel Adams "Ruby Mild"
Boston Beer Company - Boston, Massachusetts USA
Mild Ale (ABV 5.6%) (IBU 20)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a medium copper brown with a ruby hue and an average (1-2 finger) light tan creamy head that slowly diminished, down to a medium thick creamy film which lasted throughout and had excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted bread malt and an earthy doughy yeast with a note of caramel and a light fruity ester (plums and raisons).

The taste was very malty with a decent caramel sweetness from the start, progressing with a slight bitterness, a touch of fruit and a very mild alcohol presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a lightly sweet bitter malty taste fading slowly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just past light in body and rather creamy in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a smooth malty brew that possessed a mild bitterness and a light fruity taste, which allowed for a decent drinkability. Although this brew is not really anything special, it is still a somewhat tasty and enjoyable brew...
