A damn sight better than any other macro you can get in a restaruant. IN my top five in the American Lager category,easily. Good with pizza, mexican, or by itself. It should be noted I am one of the few beer snobs who will sing the praises of Sammy Adams.

bottle. this beer poured a brownish amber with a slight sweet malty smell. taste of malt and chocolate, hops, with a hint of grassy citrus. a pretty mellow and balanced beer without nasty chemical overtones. not bad or a big brewery in the u.s.

amber color with a white head. flavor is simple and light, easy to drink. slightly hoppy and malty, finishes smooth, not a bad lager

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2005 Another catastrophic failure for the Boston Beer Company. Heavy ass lager that tastes like I licked the bottom of an oak barrel. The only reason this gets a 3 in Flavor is because I tried it in Colonial Williamsburg on draft and managed to choke it down without throwing up bile the rest of the night.

Nice amber color. Way more flavor than any other mass produced american lager. If you like a lot of hops it a good beer for you.

If you ever go out to a chain resturant for dinner (think Applebees, Olive Garden, Chilis) then this is probably the best beer you will find on tap. This old reliable has saved me countelss times when the only other choices were coors light, bud light, etc. This is a decent beer, completely respectable in everyway, yet not god enough to compete with the craft brews such as Stone, Southern Tier, etc.

Not a beer that is going to blow your socks off but a well balanced lager that you can drink all night. There is a slight citrus taste and hops are mild. This is a beer for your friend who always drank Bud, Coors and Miller and now wants to get a little more adventurous.

Faint aroma is hops and yeasty bread, perfectly clear classic amber color. Fairly thin head doesn’t leave much lacing. Complex taste with a great balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. It’s obvious this beer starts with choice ingredients, leaves me with a unique finish that’s quite good. It’s a staple at restaurants, in the absence of anything new or unusual I keep coming back to it.

Ok, I’ve had many, many of these in my day. Around the time I figured out that I didn’t have to sink as low as Coors or Budweiser this was my step-up. Sam Adams is a good quality lager but it still doesn’t compare with the ’great beers’ out there. Still, if you want something good you can drink a lot of this is a decent option.
