Golden. Nice hoppy aroma and a clean and crisp flavour. A good and refreshing pilsener.

Golden in color with an average head, mostly diminishing. Malt aroma with floral notes. Flavor is smooth and watery with a touch of hops.

If my ratings do not give it away, I think this is one of Sam Adams better brews.

Better than the super watery american macros, but not up to par with the great pils.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 7, 2003
Found an old bottle, and it wasnt to great. Well carbonated, golden hue. Little white head. Floral, herbal nose. Hops are prevalent, and quite nice, yet the lack of supporting malt is somewhat disappointing...Not bad, I used to love this when I was 14 years old, haha, really.

Not a bad beer, certainly drinkable but really lacking in character

Surprisingly good for a sam adams product. Clean, rather substantial maltiness, balanced by a healthy, saazy hop charge. Finish is a little sweet, with lingering lemon.

Crisp and refreshing. Not sam’s best, but nice in the summer.

Pretty average pils, not a favorite of mine. Good, thirst-quenching, with some bitterness and citrus note. Would prefer more bite...

It has been a while since I last had this so take the review with a grain of salt. Anyway, it has a yellow color typical of the style. The taste light, refreshing and not too bitter. Overall not my favorite, but good during the summer.
