Pours a nice gold color with a quickly dissipating finger of head. Aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a hint of hops. Flavor is clean and slightly hoppy, reminded me slightly of a good pilsner with a bit more body. Very well-rounded.

one of my all time favorite beers, reliable sweet and always a pleasure. I agree with phaleslu that its not as complex as its made out to be. I find it to be a non offencive very easy to drink beer at the same time good strong flavor of citrus, malts and a bit of sweet caramel coming through however its so smooth you may never notice.

The Budweiser of craft beer? Nah. I’ll tell ya what, this beer is perfect in the summertime for barbequing. Goes great with grilled or fried foods. I’m not used to this kind of hoppiness in a lager, but it manages to have a slightly bitter finish, while remaining very drinker friendly and extremely refreshing! I think that Sam Adams did a wonderful job on this brew. Solid brew.

Kind of floral in the aroma and hop, nice copper color. Smooth taste with nice malt backbone and a nice finish. Probably the best example of a mass marketed US beer.

Flavourful, hearty lager. Moderate head, good finish. Slight coffee, heavy caramel making for a sweet initial impression. Very good for what is now a macro.
