2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I usually scoff at this company because there "pseudo craft" stylings can’t compare to other mainstream craft breweries like Sierra Nevada or Rogue etc...To be honest, I think most of Sam Adams repertoire is slightly worse than average with a couple of exceptions, notably the new Imperial Pilsner, which I consider to be a freak anamoly from this company...In fact, I am quite certain that Sam Adams’ executives will decide that the Imperial Pilsner offering (while, in this progressive beer drinking society, makes some sense on paper, and is exceptionally satifying on the palate by any standard measure of beer drinking) is too good for their "teetering around mediocrity beer that’s guzzled by people who think that they are drinking something sophisticated" type image... and furthermore, that if the "average" Samuel buyer wants beer this good they should seek accomodations elsewhere. Also, I am investigating the possibility that some other, better company with a higher standard of what constitutes great taste and outstanding craft has brewed the Imperial Pilsner FOR Samuel and Sam has just stuck their "I have just stepped off the fucking Mayflower" logo on it...Fucking-A...Proxy brewing motherfuckers...he should just drown himself in that vat of stale swill that he sits in on the television commercials...maybe then when he ascends to heaven he will be able to see what a real beer is supposed to taste like...cause in heaven the lands are filled with premium IPA’s from brewers like Stone, Ale Smith, and Smuttynose...the river’s flow with belgian ales...and in the darkness of night THE STOUTS OF UNDERWORLD RISE...people piss Boston Lager and watch it stagnate into Cherry Wheat...Now with that said...I will drink this beer if the only other options are Bud and Coors...

Cor alaranjada, brilhante. Espuma boa e de média persistência. Aroma maltado expulsado, trazendo um excelente equilíbrio. No paladar notas de pão, biscoito, caramelo, doce de laranja e fruta cítricas. Corpo leve. Alta drinkability.

Fľaša 330 ml zo Seoul Plaza Bratislava. Jantárová farba, pekná jemná biela pena, krúžkuje, aróma chmelu a citrusu. Nižšia rezkosť, príjemne sladovo horkasté telo, chutné a piteľné pivo.

Bottle in Shin-Osaka Station, waiting for the train to go in the middle of Typhoon 11. Nice hoppy nose, grass, bit of lemon, amber malt with some caramel. Nice malty flavor, caramel, bread, decent hops. Better than I remembered.

330ml bottle pours clear copper. Not much off the nose, but its quite inviting and clean. Good sweetness, grainy, corny sweetness. Good spicy, Herbal hops balance out the sweetness beautifully. Long finish that bitters nicely. Well constructed stuff.

Botella. Color muy bonito dorado oscuro.
Buena capa de espuma.
Aroma especiado, malta y naranja. Muy bueno.
En boca es muy cremosa. Se mantiene el toque especiado y floral con un agradable sabor final lupulado. Muy equilibrada.
Una lager fantástica.

Draft pour pint in the signature labeled Boston lager glass. Pours a dark clear amber with an oily fizz head. Sometimes when I’m thinking about a beer (most of the time that’s the case), I’ll winder what I rated aomething, then I’m completely surprised to learn I never rated. Especially for a mass produced beer that always tasted good to me. I never really knew what it was about this beer. The crisp flavor maybe. How refreshing it is? Very little aroma here, and it comes off as a super light beer, but there is a really good amount of flavor, and it doesn’t get old for me. This isn’t really a beer that I will go and drink a six pack of at home, but when I’m at a restaurant that doesn’t specialize in beer, this is an obvious choice over the competition for me. Good lager. Tasty beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow-copper and clear with an average white head. Aroma is grass and sweetish grains. Tastes of sweetish grainy malts, corn and a good amount of noble hops. Very well-balanced and quite flavorful. Still, has a lingering sour bitterness and lacks focus and depth.

American vienna lager brewed by traditional German method. There is used Hallertau and Tettnang hops, which gives it a lovely promising aroma where also a hint of flowers are included. The foam is high and renewable. The taste is malty and surpasses almost to the ale-like. The hoppy bitterness is pleasant and long-lasting. It is a lager which, besides being very kind really, also offers many flavors. This means that you must be vigilant when enjoyed, if you want it all. A star among lagers and yet more proof that it cunningly possible to mix European and American brewing culture.
