Pours a golden amber and smells sweet, floral and malty. Sweet malts up front, caramel notes and maybe some pine towards the end. Body and carbonation is medium. Not an outstanding beer but I can always count on it as a good option in an average bar.

Appearance: it has a clear copper-amber color with medium head. Aroma: smells like caramel malts and some herbs. Tastes like toasted malts, caramel and some bread notes. Drinkable.

i was at my friends house and his mother offered me one of these and i was disgusted. i almost threw up. this beer was terrible. i would like to tell the people who make sam adams that u should stop making it until u learn how to make a quality beer.

Tap at a Giants/Dodgers game. Nice light brown color and a fluffy head. A very nice taste of hops and a flavor i couldnt really figure out. Nice smooth, taste with a small bitter bite at the end. A nice medium body baseball game dog, when its not hot.

Tap. Probably the most hops you’ll get out of a micro on the verge of macro brewery. In that regard it was great. The aromas were lacking as well as a good mouthfeel, but a good color and head to it. This is hands down the beer I would get at a bar full of macros. Enjoyable.

This is the best of microbrew meets big time bottler. Beautiful copper color with a near perfect head. More floral and strawberry than I expected. Finishes well.

Great beer. Had two at Doyle’s Pub after the Sam Adams brewery tour. Served in a Sam Adams specialty pint glass, something of a cross between a tulip and a regular pint, with the addition of a laser-etched bottom to release carbonation. Definitely everyone’s go-to beer in the Boston area. Was surprised at the effectiveness of the glass; it sustained the head all the way through and lead to a much more fragrant experience. Beautiful amber color, great taste. No complaints, but neither is it up to the heights of some of the beers I’ve had since joining the site.

This is another beer that is good for what it is a more mass produced craft beer
