Flaska från SB.
Ser förbannat bra ut i sin mörka gulbruna skrud och mastiga skum.
Doftar bra av karamellmalt och blomster.
Sjysst lagersötma och kaxig beska.

472ml can from the LCBO. Big foamy off-white head on a body that’s on the lighter side of the "amber’ description, almost a deep orange/straw. Floral hops are present on the nose alongside some pine, caramel, and toffee. Very flavorful with a nice sessionable amount of bitterness. Probably my favorite beer that I can reliably find in every LCBO/Beer Store.

Reviewed On: (5/24/14):
*Serving: 12 oz
*Aroma: orange, pine, caramel, bready, floral, grassy, faint hint of citrus
*Appearance: Pale amber with three fingers of pillowy white head. It slowly receded to one finger. The beer left nice lace after consumption.
*Taste: Sweet malt taste upfront, hint of orange/citrus taste in the middle, and a mild piney bitterness at the end.
*Palate: Light body, slick mouthfeel, average carbonation on the tongue. Finishes dry.
*Overall: A pioneer in the American Craft Beer Revolution that to this day, still makes a great tasting lager. Some beer snobs shit on Sam Adams, because they think that they are not a craft brewery anymore, but the matter of fact is they are, just on a larger scale. A happy thirty year anniversary to everyone at the Boston Beer Company.

330ml bottle poured served in a Weizen glass.
A: Pours a beautiful clear dark orange color forming a good two fingers bubbled and fluffy white to light yellow head. Very good retention and lots of lingering lacings left in the glass
S: Strong notes of sweet and caramel malts. Toffee, caramel and roasted malts. A little bit metallic. Very pleasant floral hops. Biscuity Lager yeasts in the end
T: Slightly sweet upfront, becoming deliciously bitter quite quickly. Caramel, caramel malts, crystal malts and hops. In overall, a dry and biscuity taste. Quite pleasant hops bitterness. Quite smooth and pleasant hops bitterness
M: Light body. A little bit molasses. Good carbonation. Smooth texture. Mild bitterness. Mals and citrus (and bit piny) hops in the aftertaste
O: Excellent drinkability. A simple but extremely refreshing beer. Excellent session beer

First had this in an Italian restaurant on tap, darkest beer available in the establishment. Prefer stouts but was open to something paired to the food. Light Crisp, soft malt and very light hop. warmed up to it after 2 glasses and purchased 2 six packs in the following weeks. Makes for a good palate cleanser between stouts.

From the Bottle braught in Turkey. Very floral sent, good strong hops on the tip of the tongue. Not much aftertaste for an Ipa style beer. Good but not overwhelming...
