4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber color, medium body. Slightly bitter finish but good balanced beer. I love this beer I drink it most of time when I have a beer in the USA and there are no micros available.

Great on tap. A good standby that is widely available. The end of the first pint usually has a bit of an aftertaste that is easily solved by another pint. Can’t drink more than a couple of these in a row though.

Lovely complex malt flavors. Nice noble hops to balance the malts. A crisp, clean drinking lager from Samuel Adams.

Passed by this numerous times in the beer store. Finally bought some when I moved to Japan- discovered at the local corner store strangely enough- was a nice diversion from the rice lagers. Remains a favorite sessional lager. Well balanced.

I find sam adams to be rather inconsistent. When I get a good bottle it is quite drinkable, but can also be rather poor.

Definitely a pleasant surprise. Sweeter than I expected, almost a bit too sweet in the aftertaste.

this is one of the better beers to drink out there. there is a strong malt presence although the hops flavor is still readily detecable. there is a good aftertaste however it is slightly on the acidic side maybe a little charcoal flavor in the aftertaste. definitely a good beer when you can’t have a micro.

Bold, hoppy flavor. Slightly sweet and dry at the end. Golden color and nice white lace when finished. Great beer, best lager.

A darn good effort, although I have sampled some with a slightly metallic taste to it. May be a bit hoppy for some, but not overwhelmingly so. Cook a steak on the bar-b and enjoy.
