This is my favorite ’mainstream’ beer, even though it is a microbrew. It has such a distinctive, original flavor with its sweetness and nice aroma, its usually the best thing to order on tap at most restaurants.

I find sam adams to be rather inconsistent. When I get a good bottle it is quite drinkable, but can also be rather poor.

A Great American Lager. Fine unique taste, nice aroma, very traditional bottle. I like to drink this Lager, at home by myself, with curtains closed shut and the door locked i turn on the smooth sounds of Isaac Hayes playing over the stereo.

When I first drank one of these about 10 years ago, I thought it was pretty good. Have only had a few since but each time I try it again I am reminded of this sort of ’charcoal’ aftertaste that really gives me a headache. I guess if you had to choose between this and a Miller Product you’d have to go with the Sam Adams.

Good, decent lager, although for the style, I think Yuengling is superior. Has a strong floral aroma and taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice smell to this one, somewhat floral like the description says. The taste is more intense than I expected, with good and bad notes. I like the slightly malty sweetness, but there is a bitter woody taste in there that I do not like. Overall, though, I look for this one in bars that don’t carry my ’normal’ favorites.

Another good drink. I found myself wanting to sit at a window in the wintertime, with a LARGE mug in hand.
