If you find yourself in a town where the only place you can get beer is the local carry out and they have nothing but "gas station" style beers , then this is probably going to be the best of your options. The aroma is pretty good but the taste is a little weak. When compared to other mass-produced lagers this is one of the better ones

Picked up a 6 pack at the LCBO since it was there. Pretty good beer. Nice burnt orange colour, and despite it’s unknown age didn’t have any skunky scent or flavour. Easy drinker without a lot of fireworks. Will pickup again.

Straight out of the bottle... wouldn’t of known this is a lager at all, unless the label... semi-sweet and malty. This is pretty good... first tried it playing nickels, asked the cocktail waitress at a local casino what imports they had and she mentioned Sam Adams... wasn’t aware Massachusetts had seceded... anyway, this is very tasty beer... a very, very good macro... Viva Boston!

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 A very good lager. On draft, the hop aroma/flavor is great, but not always consistent. One of the best mass-market lagers.

I'm not a lager fan, they serve to quench my thirst only. But this is a lager I would request, it's nicely hopped, more than I expected from a lager, and the nutty flavor is also a pleasant surprise for me. It's a good brew.

when did they change this recipe? it used to be the strongest beer in the SA lineup at 6.5% now its at 4.5%??? what strikes me is the flavors they eek out of the hops in this lager...citrus, noble spiciness, very nice. the body lacks, but for a "common" beer that you can find anywhere, this lager excels. much better than average.

Not my first time tasting, but I might as well go ahead and rate it. This is my standby beer that I know I will be able to find anywhere. Really good lager, and most people are willing to drink it. Great for parties, etc. Pour is a nice amber, with a nice mild hoppiness in the nose. Good head on this beer. Taste is crisp. Slightly hoppy and well balanced with the malt. Very satisfying.
