A good beer, even straight out of the bottle. Better than the sam adams ale(no, its not just my opinion between lager and ale, this is actually my top rated sam adams beer)

Smells good, hits the palate immediately with bitter hops and perhaps a slightly acidic flavor. Balanced well though with some sweet undertones including the taste of caramel. Very refreshing for a domestic, I’d have to say that it’d be my choice by far over the "typical" macrobrew Buds and Anheuisers. A good "everyday" beer to drink between the microbrews.

Not my favorite Sam Adam’s. Looks and smells great, but the taste isn’t to far above average. Just kinda simple. Malts fading into hop bitterness. Not bad at all though

Bottle from Waitrose in Bloomsbury. Pours golden in colour with bright white head. Sweet malty aroma. Biscuit, caramel, malty taste. Light mouth feel with average carbonation. Good ’every day’ beer.

Yeah, this and Yuengling are pretty close to the best American beers. Think Sam has a slight edge though. Very good taste, I like this stuff

This has a nice golden look with an ok white frothy head. Not much for aroma but it has something other than an alcohol smell (ie bud’s smell). It has a great freshing taste that I enjoy when I just feel like putting back some cold ones with BBQ. It is by far the best beer that is widely sold on tap.

My first rating...
Bottle, I really like the colour on this beer, a nice amber colour, a bit sweet at first but finishes bitter.

Because samuel adams does not mass produce there ale light the big boys coors, bud, miller, there are veriation in flavor so somtimes I enjoy this brew better than others. Reguardless Samuel Adams is my favorite brewery.
