Don't really know what all this beer is really about. It tastes like a average beer, but with a skunkier, sweeter taste that I did not like. It's the kind of beer Republicans probally drink while discussing "important things" at the nearby Red Lobster. Which I will have no part of

Best by 09-(presumably)03. What is it about this stuff? An incredibly schizophrenic juxtaposition of what may be Cascade and Saaz hops in a lager? Bland anoymous malts. Whatever the intent, this stuff always makes me pucker and I seldom have another.

Hops hops hops! One of my favorite from Samuel Adams. I’ve had many, and will continue to drink these.

lets be honest, there are better beers out there, alot of better beers, but there are alot of worse beers. Went to a local bar that had this on tap tonight and decided perfect time for a review. Head about 1/4 inch which was gone seconds later. Slightly fruity aroma. I always notice the appealing amber color first! The taste was a little bitter but overall very smooth. Flavor was a little lacking, flat if you will. Its a decent larger but theres other i’d take any day over this. I think some of their seasonal brews are much stronger!

bottle 355 mL, poured in lager glass, brown cloudy color with creamy medium head. aroma is mostly malt. medium body beer with surprising intense flavor for a lager, thanks for the bitter ending and refreshing at the same time, not very complex since taste is mostly caramel malt and bread but very tasty. good example of a fine viena

My first Samuel Adamns beer I ever tried, needless to say I was impressed. An above average lager with a complex full taste.

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.

Sam Adams exists for one reason in my life - to give me a beer to order in a restaurant chain that has a very limited selection. Nice clean lager that tastes like a beer not a macro-.

I think Sam Adams has some decent seasonals, and I greatly admire the brewer who started the company, but this is swill. I must say that there is a reason most beer only uses so many hops, and thats because they can be overwhelming if used improperly (much like garlic). The beer looks like it might be tasty, but it is honestly hard for me to drink.
