The beer is decent enough but it’s so standard. Average scores for everything.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not too sweet or watery, nice for a lager. Bit sweet, and not up to ana verage craft beer. Some creamy mouthfeel and balance, crisp and dry aftertaste. Hint of floral aroma.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355mL. Why have I waited until over 2,000 ratings to rate Sam Adams? Because I have never paid money for a SA product so waited until I was given a free one at a dinner function. The pour is a clear orange amber with a thin, white head that has zero retention and lace. Aroma is actually quite nice. It smells exactly like the inside of a brewery: lots of oatmeal, grist, raw malt, caramel. Not bad. Taste is slight diacetyl and copper metals atop a nice attempt at a Vienna lager. Coating, bitter, sharp palate. As it warms it gains more butter, sugary full-bodiedness, some english toffee and peanut brittle. Unfortunately, the metallic and buttery palate distracts too much. This is significantly worse than my first ever batch of extract homebrew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange golden colour. Minimal white head. Light bitter, light coffee, light roasted malt taste. Nice flavour, but too light. Light body. Nice light bitter, light dry, light astringent finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very distinct flavor but my least favorite of the Sammy’s line, as I much prefer their seasonal fare. Nothing to really complain about though, as it is an above-average lager.
