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...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Geproefd tijdens proefavond biergilde hoorn. Kopergouden kleur met minmaal crèmekleurig schuim. Geur is honingdrop, licht prikkelend op de achtergrond nootmuskaat. Smaak is citrus, laurier een klein bittertje, als paracetamol. Mondgevoel is dun en licht trekkend. Aardig maar niet meer dan dat

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. For some reason, I have never rated this one. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, malty with few hops. Medium thin mouthfeel. Acceptable and easily drinkable, but not special.
