UPDATED: SEP 14, 2004 I really like this beer. Nice and hoppy, more than I expected from the lager. The hops really do it for me. A nice option when all they have is macros.

On a hot day, in a cold glass, when nothing better is around... It’s a good drinkable beer. Nough said.

Good brew, nothing crazy special, but good none the less. will drink when selection is small, and s.a. light is n/a. but i did think this was a good overall beer.

Golden amber color with an off white head that is huge and foamy. Very hoppy aroma with some malty notes. Hoppy flavor with some floral notes and a little sweetness. Good beer that is very balanced. Dry finish.

Bottle & tap: The staple product of Boston Beer Co. A beer everyone in the states has probably seen or had at some point. Even with its wide distribution and macro-brewed status, this beer manages to taste better than average consistently. Dark amber/copper appearance in the glass with a frothy white head. Toasted malt, caramel and floral hops dominate the aroma, while the taste has sweet malt and bitter hops balance with a slight yeast flavor. Finishes crisp and dry.

Best American lager you can buy, bar none. Nice dark amber color, reminds you you’re not drinking a normal north american lager. Hard NOT to like this beer.

Pours amber with a small head. Light hops, decent smoothness. Slight malty taste. Average stuff. Overrated if you ask me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear reddish copper color with little head (as served). Nice malty aroma, toasted and caramel, with a floral/earthy hop aroma. Nicely bitter flavor, with sweet malt balance, some hop flavor but not much and a touch of yeast. Good clean & dry finish. A good beer that that I can count on when I’m in a craft beer oasis.

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.
