It went down well and had the same grain essence as fresh bread. It had a semi-sweet flavor and finished a little bitter. A good ale.

Only slightly heavier than their Boston lager this ale is drinkable and easier to find than most ales.

Amber to copper gives you a beautiful glass of a fruity ale with a dark-yellowish top. Plums, raisins in the aroma and a sweet toffee in the palate, that ends with a certain bitterness.

This is a good all around no nonsense beer. It's smooth and easy to drink. Nothing special, but it's readily available and it's a decent brew.

I expected more from this beer, but it still did not let me down. I notice that this is a beer that is much better of tap than from the bottle. Somewhat hoppy and smooth to drink, but I prefer others for an Ale.

This is perhaps the best offering by the Boston Beer Company. A bit heavier than your average American ale. Creamy and slightly hoppy. A unique and fairly memorable ale.

On tap the the Pic in Tewksbury. Pours clear amber, with a decent sized white head, long lasting, but no lacing. Aroma is malty and sweet, mostly hinting of caramel. Flavor is intenselt caramel, maybe overly sweet. No hops to speak of. Pretty thin mouthfeel also.

I had this on tap at the Piccadilly Pub in Sturbridge. Has a nice amber color with little carbonation and sweet malty smell. Taste is mildly malted and finishes with a refreshing bitterness. Overall this is a pretty good amber ale and is similar to the Uno amber, but better.

It is too Bass-ish for me. For some reason these seemingly popular beers just don't do anything for me. Well I guess thats why there is a variety...

Has a nice amber color with a good bit of carbonation. Taste is of hops with roasted malt and finishes moderately bitter. Overall this did not impress me.

A solid ale by Sam Adams. A smooth, slightly creamy ale with a light aftertaste.
