Not my first time tasting. Really good lager, and most people are willing to drink it. Pour is a nice deep amber, with a nice mild hoppiness in the nose. Good head and lacing on this beer. Taste is crisp. Initially is slightly hoppy/sweet , then finishes a little bitter, and well balanced with the malt. Very good.

Golden. Aroma? Got my stuffed sinuses. Taste is bready, seems like some corn, which is odd, citrus/pine bitterness, some malt, but not enough. The bitterness helps it a lot, but that bready taste won’t go away and isn’t pleasant. Fairly high carbonation gives it a creaminess that’s OK. Overall, pretty "blah", though could do in a pinch. I wouldn’t cry if I never had it again, though.

Good stuff! Subtle taste, appearance and aroma promise a little bit more but a great lager. Rusty, reddish appearance. Lovely sweet aroma. Good balance of bitterness. Slightly silky carbonation. Slight dryness. Could drink all night and might. 330ml bottle, go sam! Was admonished for ordering this in a Tribeca bar due to it being from Boston but from memory its on a par with Brooklyn lager.

Flaska från SB.
Ser förbannat bra ut i sin mörka gulbruna skrud och mastiga skum.
Doftar bra av karamellmalt och blomster.
Sjysst lagersötma och kaxig beska.

472ml can from the LCBO. Big foamy off-white head on a body that’s on the lighter side of the "amber’ description, almost a deep orange/straw. Floral hops are present on the nose alongside some pine, caramel, and toffee. Very flavorful with a nice sessionable amount of bitterness. Probably my favorite beer that I can reliably find in every LCBO/Beer Store.

Reviewed On: (5/24/14):
*Serving: 12 oz
*Aroma: orange, pine, caramel, bready, floral, grassy, faint hint of citrus
*Appearance: Pale amber with three fingers of pillowy white head. It slowly receded to one finger. The beer left nice lace after consumption.
*Taste: Sweet malt taste upfront, hint of orange/citrus taste in the middle, and a mild piney bitterness at the end.
*Palate: Light body, slick mouthfeel, average carbonation on the tongue. Finishes dry.
*Overall: A pioneer in the American Craft Beer Revolution that to this day, still makes a great tasting lager. Some beer snobs shit on Sam Adams, because they think that they are not a craft brewery anymore, but the matter of fact is they are, just on a larger scale. A happy thirty year anniversary to everyone at the Boston Beer Company.
