Looks nice with a copper-brown appearance and pleasant aroma. Taste is more complex than you'd expect for a lager and quite hoppy to boot. Recommended.

Thick ivory head lends to a delicate brussels lace. There's a pleasant hop flavor mixed with toffee maltiness. Finish is balanced between malt and hops.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [draft at Max and Ermas - Moon Township, PA] Wonderful coppery color. Good hoppy taste that is not too overpowering and leaves just enough of an aftertaste to let you know you just drank a good lager.

Bottle. This is one of my favorite beers I've had so far. At first it seemed sour, but after my second bottle I developed a taste for the hoppy flavor. There is a subtle but engaging nuance of citrus in the lager that I love. If you are new to beer, this is a good stepping stone from the macros to smaller, craft brews.

Sam Adams is by far one of the best macros (or biggest micros if you prefer) in the US. It has a nice mild taste that isn't offensive in any way. Its not the most complex lager in the world, but it will do the trick when nothing else is around.

I drink this beer on tap only. The bottle doesn't do it justice. On tap, the foam is pure white and lingers in the glass until the last drop. Fresh Hops aroma comes out (just like a lager should). Easy to drink, the hops taste stays on the back palate and gives a nice after taste.

This beer really is a lifesaver when you are in a chain place that has a bad beer list with friends. It is a better than average lager that is miles ahead of anything else they will likely have on tap.
