COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bruce describes his classic German-style lager as "pale gold in color with a blend of Pilsner maltiness and a mild hops aroma. The bitterness is just enough to balance the taste of the malt." Bruce is a former music teacher who began homebrewing 13 years ago when his wife gave him a kit for Christmas. He has since become an accomplished homebrewer and shares his knowledge and passion for beer by teaching classes in homebrewing and beer appreciation.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2007
Golden color, clear, with a fluffy white head. Light malty aroma, little hops, flower and honey. Biscuit and bready malts, balanced with a light bitterness. This beer improves substantially as it warms. Very clean and well made, and a rare example of a Sam Adams brewed beer that lacks that indescribable yet distinguishing Sam taste. Best of the Longshot series, and I would take this over the Boston Lager (which I like) any day. Subtle yet delightful.

not horrible, but a totally average beer in every measureable way. not quite sure how this won as there had to be much better competition."

Bottle. Pours gold with a small white head. Malt/biscuit aroma with some herbal hops and light citrus. Moderately sweet bread/biscuit malt flavor with light herbal/floral hops and a touch of citrus. Similar finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was thin and off white. Bread, hay and subdued caramel malt aromas with a hint of noble hop. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with mild bitterness. Malt forward flavors that followed the aroma. There was also a dash of brown sugar with noble hops in the background.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2010 One of a few Samuel Adams LongShot’s I have tried. I like them, a nice change from their standard.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy light copper color with white head. Aroma is honey, vanilla, fruity, a touch of grain, and a slightly herbal note. Flavor is honey, vanilla, fruity, toast, and a bitter spicy finish.

rtcpenguin (4) - Alabama, USA - AUG 14, 2009 does not count
Reminds me of a fine belgian urine, with notes of fruit, honey, and wheat. Overall not appealing and would do better in a toilet than a mouth.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Sweet citrus and lots of grain, thin with a light sweetness and the a grainy dull bitter finish. Not so great. Must have been better as a small batch.

Overall Impression: Out of the LongShot pack from I believe 2007? I remeber thinking this was decent but unremarkable. Old notes had it rated here, so I’ll just trust those...

Poured yellow with a white head. Aroma of fruit. Some fruit and candy flavor. Not a favorite.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Pretty drinkable, but not very memorable. Malt, caramel, not much hops. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Not offensive, but nothing I’d write home about.
