UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 Bottle. Subtle malt and hops aroma. Light amber color with moderate head. Moderate bready malt and hop finish. Had a sample at the Boston brewery - so much better fresh. Still usually the best choice availble at most chain restaurants.

This amber colored beer has a nice head and an aroma of fruit and malt. The flavour has notes of fruit, flower and malt, and it’s exceptionally fullbodied "only" being a lager. The bitterness is moderate, but just right for this beer, that is almost ale-like.

Bottle: Light amber coloured, small, but firm off-white head; sweet-malty, a bit toasted aroma with a big touch of herbal hoppiness; distinctive bitter flavour; malty, nutty finish with a long, hoppy, herbal aftertaste. Superb ! Spicy and smooth.........

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.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 355 ml bottle. 4.7% (2009 rating 4.8%). BB Nov/13. (Prisma) Helsinki, Finland.
Clear amber colour with a small white head. A sweet fruity and berry aroma with some mild hoppy bitterness, fruit tea and sweetish maltiness. The flavour is fruity and floral hops, fruity tea notes and some bitterness. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Slick palate. Tasty American Lager. Very Ale-ish Lager.

Bottle at fiddler. Pours clear dark golden with a white head. Aroma of bread, dough, malt, light citrus. Flavour is light sweet and bitter, solid malt backbone with a little lemon. Light to medium bodied with light carbonation. Really excellent for a lager.
