I know, Jim Koch, I KNOW! Boston Beer Company has been tremendously successful. You have introduced huge numbers of people to the idea of beers other than pale lager. You’ve even made some quite decent beers along the way before slacking off. You’ve made your point. I’ll review your sweet smelling, bland looking, bland tasting, thoroughly mediocre flagship beer that you insist on cramming into every Samuel Adams variety 12 pack. Now will you please fucking LEAVE? [from a 12 ounce bottle on December 23, 2015 at Longhorn Steakhouse on Harrison Avenue, a place with a lousy beer selection]

Butelka 330ml. Bursztynowy kolor. Piana biala dosc obfita. W zapachu dominuja chmiele. Ich mieszanka ma tez duzy wplyw na smak. Goryczkowy z orzechowa nuta i chmielowym finiszem . Dobre piwo

I used to like this beer, but I guess that was before there were much better beers.

Lager équilibrée, douce rafraîchissante, avec un corps tout de même présent qui assure de la longueur, de la consistance, tout en en offrant une bière rafraîchissante et subtilement houblonnée.
Un top du genre pour moi.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Biscuit, malty, bready aromas. Bread, malty, pretzel flavors. Some people hate on Sam Adams, but I still think this beer is pretty solid. Nothing amazing, but you could do a lot worse.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle out of variety pack. Fridge chilled. Served in a Tulip glass. Big white head. Beer is a clear golden color. Significant lacing. Aroma is of light malts and some hops. Notes of bread and cereal. Taste is Lightly bitter with a smooth finish. Lighty malty with faint notes of bread and hay. A bit hoppy for a lager. Light bodied and average carbonation. Overall an ok lager. I’ve never cared much for this particular offering from Sam Adams and have genuinely been annoyed by their persistent push of this beer. Sam Adams makes many fine brews, this is not one of them. Its generally a turn off for me when I look to purchase one of their variety packs and 4 out of the 24 beers are these and another 4 are likely an experimental crap shoot leaving 16 fine beers out of 24, yet most of the variety pack can only be purchased in a variety pack, Marketing games.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2015 Pours a light amber color with a white head. Some hop aroma not much else. Flavors the same with some malty flavor. Nothing special but not bad. Nice solid lager. Very light palate. Little lacing in the glass.

Good rendition of a Lager Beer made in USA. Have had in both bottle & draft, although draft always beats bottle:)lol
