I do find myself drinking this more often than I would like. Many of the people I know are yuppies and a dead revolutionary on the label of a beer makes it a status symbol. I still prefer yuengling if I need something to swig at a party.

American beer with that European flavor. I can’t knock it...except for the price at my local Kroger’s..heck for a buck and half more I could buy serious imports. If you get the opportunity try this one on draught. It is twice as good.

Good stuff, nothing too distinctive, but solid.

Not bad. Light taste with little finish, no aftertaste. Walnut and grain flavors.

Very good. Complex hoppy flavor. Has a sweet background and is very enjoyable to drink. From this point on, when I'm looking for a beer that won't break the bank when I want to drink more than a 6 pack, this is the one I'm buyin.

This one is an OK value when on sale. To me it’s more malty than anything else. Could be a bit hoppier. Drinkable and tasty. A good product, but not a truly great beer.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2007 I really enjoy this brew. Very distinct hoppy flavor. Has a bite to it. You know when you’re drinking a Boston Lager. Very well balanced flavor, with an almost piney afertaste. My favorite to get with a meal. A great beer for any beer lover.

A great American Lager. Great hoppy smell and a great amber color. Overall one of the best Lager’s i’ve had.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2009 This beer had to grow on me. When I first has this...I hated it....but after a few more attempts at it...I have grown to love this beer...and has become one of my favs.....great aroma....bold smooth flavor...nice creamy head...I have yet to have a Sam Adams beer that I didn’t like
