some oxidation in the nose. it’s clearly been on the shelf too long. hazy medium gold color. rich head. soft, round malt flavor with minor hop characteristics. this beer is just too old to really represent itself, and i’ll seek out a fresher bottle to re-rate.

Got this in the spring sampler and it is a really nice beer. The beer has citrus aroma and flavor with some floral characteristics as well. They have used a very nice, mellow hop to blend the flavors and it works well.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bleekgoud bier, minimale schuimkraag. Nauwelijks neus of aroma. Fris, citrus-achtig. Licht bitter, licht zoet. Weinig body, waterig. Doordrinker, maar niets speciaals.

A minimal citrus grain taste and smell. A golden brown color. Nothing special for Sam Adams.

The aroma is citrusy and grainy. It pours a dark golden semi-cloudy color. The taste is kind of sweet, it doesnt have the clean finish that I like in a lager.

(bottle - 12 oz) Amber pour with a creamy head. Nice and balanced hop and yeasty malt aroma. Flavor is much the same. Not too much hops and balanced well by a nice malt sweetness. Smooth and easy drinking.
