Suprisingly light in color and thin. Overly carbonated. Smells of cherry candy. This brew tastes slightly artificial and is very sweet. An okay brew but there are far superior cherry and fruit beers to be had.

This is personally one of my all time favorite classics from Samuel Adams. The taste has a nice malty flavor with a hint of cherries. The head on this beer stays throughout the whole drink. Very good.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Had this reccomended by a co-worker who said it had a good well rounded flavor and aroma. I personally wasn't impressed at all and I wish I would have just bought the regular lager with my money. I'll give it to him, the aroma was very appetizing, but the taste to me was just something totally different and unexpected. I was hoping for something a little sweet and smooth, what I got was something that tasted like a diluted beer/cough syrup mix. I'd skip this one.

The aroma of this beer is great. I could smell it for hours but eventually I get thirsty and drink it. But beforet that, the appearance is average with little off white head. The taste is just as it smells, full of cherry, malt, and herbs. A great beer but it is not as filling as other Sammy beers.

Not impressed at all, the aroma is satisfying but the overall taste just doesn't cut it

Pours transparent amber with large frothy white head. Aroma of cherries and hops. Flavor is (fortunately) not as sweet as aroma, but cherries still come through too strong. Tastes like a lager with cherry cough syrup added. To be fair I tried another, but the cherry additive is way overdone here without any other decent flavors to balance it out. I'll avoid this one in the future.

Did not enjoy, gave 3 away. Too much cherry flavor addative,not much of any "beer" taste. Too sweet. Serve as cold as fucking possible. Never again.
