Good value for money here. An almost citrus initial taste, but does grow on you.
Good colour, and easy head.

This is good beer. And it is affordable too. Over time it has become one of my favorites and a mainstay in my fridge.

This is one of my favorite beers on draft. I don’t typically drink it in the bottle.

It’s a standard lager. Lacks any particular hoppy bite, but definite hops in the flavor. Just missing something. No particular lingering malts in the finish, it’s just an average beer.

Typical lager aroma and color. Flavor had something strange I couldn’t put my finger on. For some strange reason, it reminded me of baked beans...you got me. Average.

I love this beer for how well it performs compared to how much I pay for it. It has the quality of some german or U.K. brews, but costs a good bit less. Its just as thick, hearty, and tasty as many of the european beers, and reminds me alot of some of the ’Octoberfest’ style beers they sell from germany. These are not those super thick strong beers, but are a bit lighter than that, yet way heartier than beers like Bud and Fosters. I picked this beer last, since it seemed like the biggest seller, I assumed that meant it would taste the most like a mainstream beer such as Bud. I was wrong, this is one of my favorites, if not my very favorite from Samuel Adam’s beers.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2004 Orange-amber, tall head which lasts. Yeasty & hoppy nose, with caramel tones. Buttery amber malt flavor with zesty hopping. Clingy mouth, though I suspect that the palate has been enhanced deliberately with finings gel.
