It’s good for a mass produced beer. My only real complaint here, is that sometimes...it tastes old....I’m not sure exactly what it is...but like...every third bottle tastes bad. But then, I’m drunk right now...so whatever!

341 bottle. Poured into a pilsner glass with 1 finger of head and left some lacing. It has a darker golden colour than many lagers. Again, comparing to other lagers it has more flavour. Clear and crisp. Some citrus which I find refreshing in a lager. Better than most of the mass produced lagers.

On tap at Mile Square in Hoboken. The only reason that i gave this beer a 5 for appearance is the nifty new glasses that Sam Adams came out with for this beer. Pretty standard swill though. All in all, i think i’m just not that big a fan of Jim Koch’s beers.

Definitely a decent lager. Sweet, malty, light hop character. Nothing out of this world but OK.

Pours a light to medium amber with an off white head that leaves some but not a lot of lacing. The smell is led by caramel malts with some floral hops with the slightest bit of citrus. The taste follows the nose as it is also led by the caramel malts with a little bit of floral hoppiness. The palate leaves something to be desired, it’s somewhat light bodied but has a stickiness to it, it’s not bad, but for something this light I expect it to be refreshing to some degree.
Overall this is a pretty good beer, it’s not Pliny or KBS but it gets the job done.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2012 Bottle, poured into pint glass. Decent head, good lacing. What happened to this beer? Sam Adams must’ve boosted the carbonation level because there is a whole lot of it. The hops went awol. This is not even close to what it tasted like a few years ago. The shareholders are weighing heavily on the quality of this once phenomenal brew.
