Not much better then mainstream. Had nice color and head, with a mass produced taste. Below average, from a brewery that can do alot better.

Definitely better than your run of the mill lager. Pours dark amber, clear with a good duration on the off white head. Nothing exciting on the nose, a little malt and hint of hoppiness. Tastes of caramel, malty smoothness and you can pick up a slightly bitter hoppy finish with moderate carbonation. Overall a good lager, especially when compared to other American commercial lagers.

This beer pours a nice light copper color, some reddish hue to it as well. Nice head that stays all the way until the end.
Good hop nose, slightly grassy. A malty, bread-like aroma lingers in the background. The flavor is a mirror image of the nose; hops then malt. Good body, not heavy, though I have had some bottled versions that are slightly syrupy in nature.
I’ve had Sam Adams on tap and in the bottle (this rating was of the bottled version). On tap, the hops come through a bit more, but the bottled version is a fine beer too.

My go-to brew. Definite notes of floral from the amount of hops they brew with, with citrus notes throughout. For a beer I know I’m going to enjoy - not chug like a frat boy - sam is always a good decision

Pours a tea color with a small white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, and a little bit of hop spice. Taste is of caramel, slightly roasted malt, and a touch of noble hops to balance it out. Easy drinkability.
