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...

This does have a cheeky little caramel action to it. It’s not a session beet, but it’s great for when you just want a single beet.

Very disappointing. I’m a Yuengling Lager lover and figured I’d try this. Not what I was expecting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle, citrus malt molasses aroma, fruit and malt taste, a bit of mineral fizz, with astringent bitterness at the end. Surprised it is labelled a lager rather than ale. Has a few rough edges though and could be better balanced but okay-decent beer

A great version of an American hoppy lager this is one that Sam does correctly. Easy drinker and always solid. Can say that for sams never beers but Boston lager is a standard

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown appearance. 1 finger head. Malty, dense, some sweet corn and mango. Well, it doesn’t taste great. malty, the hop bitterness is very low and the lingering is just a little bit of burnt sugar.
