UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Not bad for a beer you can get just about anywhere. Doesnt look or smell breathtaking, but some acceptable flavor is there.

On tap at a dodger game in LA. Aroma was slight hoppiness with some citrus background. Had a great, crisp bite to it with a medium body of malt flavoring. Washed it down with my all-beef dodger dog so it wasn’t that bad but a great staple in the lager world!

UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 You can’t find a better lager out there than Sam Adams. This brew boasts experience and perfection in nearly every aspect of brewing. The aroma is a beautiful mixture of spices, malt, and caramel. The appearance is a stunning amber/chocolate color. The flavor is complex and developed: great texture, hops, and undertones of caramel will please your palate. The aftertaste is enjoyable, but it won’t last long, because your next sip will interrupt it!

I enjoy this beer. For lagers, this has tons of taste. You can really taste the hops in this beer. Not my favorite, but close for my favorite lagers.

Bottle. Dark gold body and nice small head. One of the best easily accessible lagers.

Very nice beer. Has a nice light, carmel color with a hoppy, but not bitter taste. Slight roasty or toasty taste, but definitely still like beer. The palate is slight and the foam is white and very light which results in a nice sensation. The best cheap beer out there.

A solid year-round, noble beer. The taste may get a bit overdone after awhile, so you cant have too much at once. One of the strongest popular lagers.

a good regular lager - even if its expensive, it is worth it to get a whole case of it
