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...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
473 ml can from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours a
clear amber with lots of billowing white head. Retention is good and it leaves behind a ton of lacing.
Bread, malt, biscuit.
Creamy with average carbonation.
Overall: I’m not a big Lager fan but this is decent. Lots of malt coming through and it has this nice creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Really tasty lager - very malty and robust, but not too heavy either. One of the best

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The things going for this beer is a decent body and some bitterness. However the bitterness is somewhat astringent and the body lacks character. Better than the standard American pale lager, but needs more depth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ambar clara algo turbia. No tiene demasiado aroma, pero más que las lager convencionales: té, malta y algo de naranja. Cuerpo medio, alta carbonatación y un sabor muy sabroso y aromático, floral, naranjas, pan... Y final seco y amargo. Otro buen ejemplo americano de lager lupulada, de rico sabor.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle BBE: Jan ’16. Well-chilled. Pours a bright copper with minimal loose white head. Low intensity aroma, noticeably dank, wet cardboardy, a little metallic (iron/rust). Some toasted cereal notes and piney hop aromas prevail over time. Both a light sweetness and bitterness to taste - pleasant - a little tea-like. Not thin, but more medium-bodied than the full-bodied description. Medium-low carbonation and a smooth texture with no real finish. Overall the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Bought from a supermarket so perhaps not in the best condition.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Overly malty and sweet with a distinct bitter aftertaste. Amber color with an off white head. Not very good, but not bad.
