This has a nice golden look with an ok white frothy head. Not much for aroma but it has something other than an alcohol smell (ie bud’s smell). It has a great freshing taste that I enjoy when I just feel like putting back some cold ones with BBQ. It is by far the best beer that is widely sold on tap.

Very good social beer. You have a Sam Adams in your hand and you’re somebody. A little sweet. Has a dryness that leaves you thirsty for more.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2005 Poured nice copper color with good head.
Aroma is malt and hops with a smooth malty flavor and hops finish.
Great starter beer.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 Samuel Adams...always a good decision. I have had a lot of this beer, and it is great beer to get drunk on. Not too harsh, but has enough taste to keep your interest. Dry finish that leaves you wanting more. Goes well with a variety of foods. Probably the best beer that is available pretty much everywhere.

If you’re going the lager route, this isn’t the worst out there...but I wouldn’t drink it again....another low on flavor.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2004 From tap in a pint. I didn’t see it poured, but by the time it got to me, the small head was almost all diminished. Golden amber as advertised, I didn’t get much of an aroma (a little bit of the floral others mentioned, but I might have imagined it). The taste, to me, was somwhat fruity, like green grapes or black cherry, with just enough acidity and wateriness to make it refreshing. The finish wasn’t much, but that’s where I tasted the hops. Not too complex, but in no way offensive.

When I’m at a bar that only serves macros, I always take a Sam’s. In my macro days it was an over the top brew.

This has never been a beer I’ve fancied. And I’ve tried it so many times to see if I can figure out why. While it is all so obviously heads above the swill, it comes across as pedestrian to me. Maybe someone will be able to lead me to find and say what element there is that I don’t like.

An amber beer wich strikes a good balance between sweet malt and herbal hops. It’s nothing remarkable, but it would make a great starting point for people trying to get into "good beer", as it’s a step up from most macros.

I just started drinking this stuff and it left me with a bad after taste. Overall I was not impressed by this beer. A bad bitter tasting lager, Crap!!
