3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 Had this at the Fish Market in Old Towne Alexandria in the 36oz snifter. Medium brown body, decent head. Hop, malt flavors. Dry aftertaste. Could use some more alcohol. Everything about this beer was average and rather boring. The best part was the fun I had toasting with that enormous glass :-)

Not the best lager I have ever tasted but not terrible. A bitter taste after every drink is a turn off to me. Not a beer to get drunk off of but nice to have around for a drink or two at night.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The best lager that is readily available to the masses. Too good for BBQ's and parties, but I recommend keeping some around if you wanna impress your friends.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer poured an orange amber color and formed a nice foamy off white head that left latticed lace as it subsided. A small amount of carbonation is present. An aroma of malt and slight touch of hops is also present with some grain elements. A flavor of malt and caramel. The finish is light with a touch of tang to it. Lagers have ceased to be my beer of choice but in my old Bud days this beer easily would have replace it. Still would make a good session beer for drinking with friends still stuck on Bud or Rolling Rock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this one on draft at a local restaurant. Caramel colored body with a thin off-white head that left unusual terraced lacing as it faded. Smell of hops and molasses. Tasted of molasses, caramel and brown sugar with bitter, hoppy overtones. I prefer other Sam Adams brews to this one.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 Best American macro lager. Honey colored, soft mouthfeel. Hoppy, floral, fruity (grapefruit?) aroma and flavor. Dry finish. Very pleasant.

Don't care for original sam adams lager at all. Cherry and stout and a lot of the other brands are amazingly good, but the lager is skunky to my taste. Bland, and way too hoppy for my tastes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber, fruity hoppy aroma. Nice malt flavors, a bit burnt, some bitterness in the finish. A bit too carbonated though.

Another nice brew in the Adams family. A deep brown color, much more flavor than the standard lagers and a lingering aroma.
