3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours light amber with a fair amount of hop aroma. Nice malt backbone with a bitter finish. A solid beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2009 One of my favorite brews to date, somewhat dark golden in coler with both bitter and sweet aromas; followed by a full-bodied taste. A full-flavored beer that is truly for the true beer lover. For the amount of body, one of the most drinkable beers I’ve encountered. Overall, an amazing beer for a decent price.

Une belle rousse. Agréable à boire, un premier gout faible en bouche, mais un arrière gout sympathique un peu matlé et sucrée.
Un premier gout plus fort en aurait fait une très bonne bière, mais elle reste des plus agréable à savourer.

One of the better from a large American brewer. Certainly the exception!

An old stand-by when better beers aren't available. Typical lager, usually well hopped, but sometimes inconsistent.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 Amber, clear, thick but quick-fading head. This lager is floral and bread-scented, which is more apparent if served in mug or glass. The malt tends to dominate though. Also, this high-carb lager is still tasty at warmer temps--for all "babysitters." Finishes sort of sweet. Low ETOH (Alcohol). A malty sipping lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled: Golden with a HUGE head. Quite hoppy with a biting finish. Not a bad beer if you enjoy hoppy beers.

Amber color, much like a pale ale, surprises you into being a lager. Ample flavor of hops and also plenty in the way of aroma. Although low on drinkability and balence. A very decent American macro.

Aight...this is my overal rating...some have had better if I can remember their names....and others met theri demise. This has not reached it’s demise. To me it’s plain and simple, not even complex. It has a bittersweet aroma. Bitter then sweet in order. The flavour is that of a tart raison. I grew up around raisons....more preferrably being called grapes until de-hygronized. Dehydrated. It’s not bad but compares nothing to such items as Dogfish Head Raison D Etre. Sorry guys I wanted to blast you off but it seems that you fell off. What that means is between you and I.

Overall, my first pint of draught Samuel Adams was a big dissapointment. Bitter, sour and altogether way too heavy on hop bite. Not one I would enjoy again.
