Probably my favorite of the long standing Sam Adams(even more than Boston Lager). I enjoy it now just as I did when I first had it(even with all the beer/styles I've tried). Smooth, malty; with just a touch of hops at the end.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A very down to earth cobber-colored ale with a nice fluffy egg-white like head and the near perfect balance betweeen malty and hoppy. Medium sweet, light bitterness. Body is right down the middle but the finish is rather sudden. A little buttery, but no real aftertaste. All this combined makes a good brew, although not the most interesting of it’s kind. Samuel Adams is a real challenger for the biggies like Carlsberg or Heineken, and I for one would 9 out of 10 times go for a SA.

Aromas de caramelo e algo frutado. Na boca, sente-se um leve amargo balanceado com um toque frutado, caramelo e malte. Ótimo corpo e linda formação de espuma, densa e duradoura. Retrogosto de fermento, mas agradável.

From bottle. Pours copper with a cream colored head. Aroma was bread, caramel and a slight fruit aroma. Taste follows. Lots of bread (biscuit) and caramel malt. Sweet and bready. Yeasty finish like a beer bread.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice clear amber pour with large, tight head. Sweet caramel malts along with some fruity spiced hop aromas. Spicy hop flavors hit the tongue along with a sweet bread note, but they’re kind of masked by the over carbonation.Residual bitterness on the finish.

Cor alaranjada escura. Pouca formação de espuma, mas persistente. Aroma de casca de laranja, cítrico. Sabor com pouco amargor quase nenhum dulçor. Regular.

Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad med fylligt långvarigt skum. Smörkola, ljust bröd, gröna äpplen och gräs i aromen. Äpplen och smörkola framför allt i smaken. Alkoholen ligger och stör i munnen.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Best before August 2013. Poured into a Samuel Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear amber color with about two fingers of a white head on it. Very sexy lacing.
Smell: Mmm.. sweet malt, with some spices. Trace hops, but they don’t come out that much in the aroma.
Taste/feel: Really a sweet ale on the front, but then the bitterness comes in... and it’s an odd bitterness. I’m not sure what I mean by that, but it’s almost the metallic bitterness that I get in canned beers that have adjuncts. I don’t get it on every sip, but when it comes in, I don’t care for it that much. The feel on this one is very good... makes this beer super drinkable. Medium carbonation, and a medium-light body with it. After taste is a lot like Boston Lager with crackery flavors. To be honest, I prefer Boston Ale to Boston Lager... I’m surprised it took me so long to try this beer. Really, really nice, and for a super reasonable price.

Bottle poured into tumbler. Appearance is a clear copper with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is a lot of malt with a little caramel and sweet fruit. Taste is similar, but it’s a tad yeasty rather than fruity. Good feel. Overall, it’s not great, but not bad either.
