Don’t normally like hops but this is balanced and drinkable. Very good middle rung beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Una buona ed onesta lager. Profumata, bilanciata, dal gusto pueno di miele di castagno con l’amaro che persiste ma non stanca. Una birra semplice e ben fatta da bere sempre.

Backlog, tried bottled and on tap a number of times. While not as good as the more hoppy and outspoken beers in this category, this is still a very good amber.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Poured from cask to a somewhat disappointing spectacle. I was under the impression that the gas had gone due to the minimal head, but I was mistaken. A darker lager than expected, and the aroma was average...nothing more nothing less. Without being over critical I did not enjoy this beer at all. It has a sweetness to it that developed further down the glass. Others that drank this felt the same. It really is one of those beers where you can only stomach a pint or two. Overall a below average boston lager that I believe should only be sold by the bottle,not cask.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark yellow colour with a light white fading head. Noses of barley, barnyard and sugared malt. On the palate it develops a light slick texture with a medium sweet body. The finish leaves some dryness and fades relatively quick.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber pour, minimal head. Nose is spicy hops and malt. Slightly more bitter then sweet. Middle is medium bodied and a loaf of yummy bread (not technical, but so what). Finish has some pleasant hop bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice colour and good 1 finger head. Aroma is nice but could be a touch more. Excellent balance, creamy caramel malts. In many ways, more Pale Ale-like than the Sam Pale Ale. Medium mouthfeel, very refreshing.
