I like this beer. It has been some time since I have had some, but upon pouring a bottle tonight I was impressed. Amber-copper colored with a nice head. Although the head didn't last long, the lacing of the glass was there until the end. What aroma was there was hoppy. The taste was malty and ever-so-slightly fruity. Dry finish with some bitterness. I felt that this beer was fairly balanced with a leaning to the malty side. Would make a great first or second step to the wonderful world of real beer.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2003 Very nice, had from keg, good light brown color with little head yet decent lacing. A little bitter (left me wanting to try the ale) but tasty going down and leaves you wanting more.

I generally enjoy lagers but I did not care for the taste of this. A little to musky for me. If I want a malt flavor I would drink a Scottish ale. If I want bitter an ESB. I was expecting more for the price.

Bright amber color. Moderate body and bitterness. Toasty character with earthy notes and bitter hop flavors in the finish. Assertive and tasty beer.

I love this beer. Alway have always will. This is my fridge stocker. I just cannot say how much I love Sam Adams. A great frothy head with a great rounded out mixture of malt and hops, that leaves you with a fulfilling aftertaste making you want to smoke a cigarette and order another.

For the eightieth time, I'm not a fan of lagers in general. That said, this one is ok.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2003 A good beer of its type. The beer snob in me makes me want to pick on it but really its fine stuff not everyone needs an IPA or Imperial stout. Medium light body, mild malt flavor with a equally mild hop profile it’s a well made beer. Maybe a little bland for most of us beer geeks but to the average man it’s a great introduction to good beer

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 At one point in my life, this was the beer that turned be on to beers with more flavor. That was many years ago. Now I find this to be quite average . Sour smelling with a strong malt flavor for a lager and mildly spicy finish. Better than some macros - full body is a bonus.
Oh yeah, new label is totally lame.
