4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 A distinctive beer all around, beginning with the aroma which features appetizing caramel malt and brown sugar and hoppy notes, very enjoyable. The appearance is likewise appetizing, a golden brown color with good head and lacing. Doesn’t appear as amber as other amber ales, but of course as a "stock ale" this claims to be something different. I’ll admit I haven’t quite figured the taste out, but it’s rather complex, with a subtle sweetness and a variety of flavorful hoppy notes. Excellent complement of caramel maltiness, English golding hop bitterness, and some fruity flavors I suppose come from the yeast. Exceptionally smooth and finishes with pleasant earthy hop finish. An excellent craft beer and my personal favorite of the Sam Adams variety. Highly recommended, but hard to find in some locales so if you come across it, give this brew a try!

Good all around beer. This is my standard go to beer when no craft brews are on sale.

Aroma of sweet fruits with a pleasant malt touch. Sweet and fruity, medium body. Kinda crisp and malty at the same time, medium bitterness. A little anonymous but decent.

A very sweet & clear beer with low carbonation, a thin, slightly off white head and faint floral & fruit aromas. Medium mouth feel with a lingering bitterness & caramel background. Finishes with a sweet and bitter bite.

Copenhagen 9/5 2015. 35,5 cl bottle from Kvickly. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with yellowish head. Quite persistent. I find the aroma a little sharp. Some sweetness as well with some caramel. Carbonation is soft. Flavour is malty sweet with notes of caramel and butterscotch. Only a light bitterness. Not what I expected from a beer from Samuel Adams but not bad at all.

Appearance with golden color and nice head.
Aroma not very strong but the hops is noticeable.
On the palate, it is refresh and with a good buddy.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours an amber with a nice medium sized off-white head. Light aromas of caramel, toffee, floral hops and butterscotch. Fairly well-balanced..starts out sweet and finishes with a light bitterness.

Aroma of bready malt, caramel, butterscotch, perfumed notes. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light bitter finish. A bit too dull and malty to impress.
