This is my staple lager, when I can’t choose I pick up Sammy and enjoy each bottle. No surprises, classic lager palate great aroma and looks great in the pint glass

Very hoppy, good bitter end and bite at the finish. Significantly smoother on draft.

Looking past the fact that this beer is mass -produced, it’s really pretty good. Good balanced character, nothing fancy but it’s good beer in a pinch when the specialty shops are all closed!

12oz. Bottle. Golden brown pour with very little head and slight lacing. Nice hop presence for lager. Nice malt flavor.

Bottle. Great balanced beer with nice hops and malts. I prefer this beer on draft as I feel I get to experience the flavors even more so. Easy to find and is a good selection when there isn’t anything new and exciting to try.

This is what I think of when I think beer. Sam Adams is what planted the seed when I realized there was more to life than bud, miller, coors. Great balance of sweet malt and bitter hops...and what I really love about this beer is the delicious aftertaste - something so few beers can accomplish

Hmm... has a malt liqour taste in a fancy bottle. It has a extremely bitter taste. If your looking for bad beer you might want to try of 40oz of malt liquor.. hey at least you get more.. If it wasnt brewed in Milwaukee its not worth drinking

A good tasting beer that can be found in most places. It may be a victim of its own success as it is now seen as common.
