All right when the other choices are bud and bud light. Has a burnt nutty aftertaste.

Decent beer that’s generally available. Drinks well but has a slight aftertaste that is less than desirable.

amber with an off white head. taste is malty with a bit of bitter balance. not very complex, but it tastes good, and goes down easy. and best of all, it's very widely availible.

If I were old enough to go to bars, I would say this would be a great bar-beer (heh heh heh...). It’s an easy drink with a good amount of hops. Malt also gives a strong sweet flavor to it as an aftertaste. I like it.

The original! Really great session beer. Perfect with steak, burgers or anything really. Great hop flavor but not too hoppy. Well balanced, great for drinking!

Not a bad beer to drink when all that you have to choose from is Bud, Bud Light or Sam Adams. This is a solid beer with good character, but still a highly commercialized beer that is meant for those who find their tastes too evolved for Coors Light, but not yet ready for Dogfish Head 90.

Respect. Sam Adams must have a patriot and beer lover. This is now a pretty big craft beer by sale volume. It's very drinkable. Respect the pioneers!

Découverte dans la Saveur Box. Pas d’arômes, pas de subtilité. Bière très amère. Pas fan du tout.

As a European I can say that this is a Quality American Beer. Bud and Miller eat your heart out

Good predictable and worthy American beer. When the bartender comes too quickly and I’m caught on the spot, not knowing exactly what I want, I just blurt out, ’Sam Adams!’ and everything is always just fine...
