Another gem from the inlaws fridge. Pours light amber small white head little retention. Nose of flowers, biscuit. Taste adds a metal twinge. Body is a bit watery.

Watered down version of Boston Lager. Not very good. For a light beer it is top of the pack, but thats sort of like winning the special olympics...

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear amber with a tall, creamy off-white head.
Slight, sweet grain malt aroma.
Taste is sweet malt, a bit of spice.
Light, yes...but not nearly as watery as a macro-light.

I found that it tasted of metal and watered down beer. I had it several years ago and did not feel the same so I’m curious what changed. For such a highly rated light beer it is a huge disappointment

355 ml bottle at the Newark airport. Surprising amber color, malty aroma, thin, slightly sweet, light on flavor, not offensive. Better than an American Standard for light beer thats for sure.

The beer appears orange and clear, with a steady stream of effervescence. The head is minimal, leaving faint traces of lacing on the pint glass when you rock it gently from side to side like a little cute baby.
The aroma is faint, but if you practically stick your nose into the beer, and imagine that you’re smelling beer, you can barely detect distant traces of malt that is too sweet.
Taste = no thanks. Too sweet, tastes cheap, odd, off, etc. Is it light beer you seek? Try a great German or Czech pils, or perhaps an English session beer. Although I respect Sam Adams, this beer is a macro lager engineered for the masses. I won’t be having this again.

12oz bottle., above average light beer. I would choose this over macro light versions any day. Clean crisp flavor, light body, better quality for a light beer.

Golden beer out of the bottle with a foamy white head. Only a hint of a nose. I had hoped for better than this. Metallic, wet corn and some odd citrus notes in the flavor. This is really just a beer.

This beer looks great but outside of that is pretty forgetable. The noble hops work well with the style as it balances the beer well without adding to much flavor. The problem is there is very little flavor from the grain bill. I know it is a light lager but still it comes across as water with a little bit of hoppiness.
