This beer is a beautiful pour, but I think it’s pretty middle of the road as far as flavor and quality. I think it’s a great beer by which to rate other beers. Fairly distinct aroma, great amber color, and a bitterish sparkling taste.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 From a bottle. Lightly sweet with hints of pine and flowers. The finish is short and bitter. It is an alright lager, but not one I would seek out.

Pours a golden amber and smells sweet, floral and malty. Sweet malts up front, caramel notes and maybe some pine towards the end. Body and carbonation is medium. Not an outstanding beer but I can always count on it as a good option in an average bar.

This is the best of microbrew meets big time bottler. Beautiful copper color with a near perfect head. More floral and strawberry than I expected. Finishes well.

i was at my friends house and his mother offered me one of these and i was disgusted. i almost threw up. this beer was terrible. i would like to tell the people who make sam adams that u should stop making it until u learn how to make a quality beer.

Tap at a Giants/Dodgers game. Nice light brown color and a fluffy head. A very nice taste of hops and a flavor i couldnt really figure out. Nice smooth, taste with a small bitter bite at the end. A nice medium body baseball game dog, when its not hot.

Tap. Probably the most hops you’ll get out of a micro on the verge of macro brewery. In that regard it was great. The aromas were lacking as well as a good mouthfeel, but a good color and head to it. This is hands down the beer I would get at a bar full of macros. Enjoyable.
