Excellent macrobrew. A beautiful, deep color yet the head is quite underdeveloped. A bit on the sweeter side with hints of bitterness which amounts to a little odd aftertaste. All in all a very balanced and soft taste.

Pretty decent, and easy to drink. Has kind of a funky/acidic aftertaste though.

hops and malt are quite apparent when the smell wafts up from the glass, moderate head, strong onset taste with lemon accents the after taste is fair in bitterness, as well as lemon and just plain goodness.

12 oz. bottle, Purchase By Date: 2/06. Bought it last Xmas as part of the Sam Adams’ Winter Case...Pours a sparkling dull-penny with an average sized, frothy-white head...Smell sweet molasses malts and light perfume hops. Can also pick up metallic honey notes...Medium bodied, thin and creamy texture with average carbonation and a bitter sweet finish...Tastes short and sweet with a slight bitterness evident near the end...Overall, a perfect "when in doubt beer" served just about everywhere. Top Macro lager in a category that usually leaves a lot to be desired. A telling characteristic is that it’s actually better served cold but it remains a fine choice if the pickings are slim.

Very distinct hoppy flavor. subtle aroma. very crisp. Great for a beer you find on tap at restaurant.

Cor âmbar escura. Pouca formação de espuma. Aroma de malte alegre e um pouco cítrico do lúpulo. Sabor de pão, comum toque cítrico. Muito boa larger.

Not a big favorate of mine. I don’t like the malt/hops balance here. I like a nice hop flavor but this just doesn’t do it for me. I’ll pass on this one everytime (unless I’m completely out of beer)

A little darker than other lagers I’ve tried. Better than Bud, Coors, or Miiler, and only slightly more expensive.

Probably one of the best American lagers around. And by the way, a brewer and a patriot is a man with his priorities in order.
