COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich and malty ale originated in Ireland in 1710. It has a deep red color and distinctive caramel flavor from its Pale and Caramel malts. The malt sweetness is balanced by the earthy notes of East Kent Goldings hops. Cheers!

Pours a clear red into the english pint glass with an inch head. A very sweet malty aroma with hints of nuts and barley. An enjoyable malty flavor with caramel, vanilla and brown sugar. A decent irish ale.

This is another solid brew from Sam Adams. Creamy and malty with a little hops in it, it goes down fine. However, you absolutely cannot switch from this to an IPA or vice versa, as it will make the other beer taste horrible.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Nice pour, a deep caramel body with a sustained, foamy beige head. Lots of lace. The aroma’s a dull carmel with a light earthy bitterness. The bitterness is stronger in the flavor and a soft nutiness is also present. Rather uneventful, making it fairly true to style.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Pours a dark amber color w/ a tall froth. Good head retention and lacework. Aromas of sweet malted biscuits and brandy. Medium full nectar w/ good carbonation. Nice and malty w/ roasted amber flavors. Biscuits, cherry essence, brandy, all whipped together with a defined hop bittering component to finish. The English hop variety used is very distinguishable.

PorterPounder (5344) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarkets - Centerville Rd. - 12 oz bottle - part of a mixer six-pack. Dark copper pour, pillowy, sticky, khaki-colored head which leaves rings of thick lacing. Not much of an aroma, some fresh lake water - overall neutral. Flavor has an earthy quality to it with some odd, meaty undertones. Hints of caramel and nuts. Mouthfeel is thick enough and appropriate for the style. Not one of my favorite styles - but this one is quite drinkable and not overly exciting like most of this style.

pretty average beer. Not really impressed with this one at all. Probably my least favorite sam adams beer. very drinkable and not bad at all, just not very memorable at all either.

12oz bottle. Man, this beer looks good. Rich and full amber pour with some caramel highlights. A decent sized head leaves decent spotty lacing. Faint aroma. Lightly toasted sweet malt, a hint of dusty grain and some sweeter corn syrup notes. Flavor has a lot of cardboard malt and some watery grassy hops. Not horribly offensive, just not all that great.
