This distinctive and refreshing American ale is brewed in the classic style, with traditional brewing, the finest English ale hops, and lightly roasted specialty malts. Hand-selected Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops impart a crisp dry finish to this flavorful authentic ale. Jim Koch

not really a fan, but i think iíll have to try it again as i had already had a few beers before having this one, but from what i can remember it was pretty ordinary.

Not bad, but a little thin on the hops.

Not as bitter or hoppy as I like my Paleís to be, itís an English style pale, so that was what I expected. The after taste wasnít exceptional, but still fair.

Not one of the top brews from SA as far as Iím concerned. I prefer the American style Pale Ale, this is very English. The hops used are quite restrained with not much at all in the aroma. Mild hop tang on the palate, but not what you may expect from a Pale Ale. Not in anyway a bad beer, but Iíll drink Anchor Liberty anyday instead.

Ok, I had another go at this one, and it was much better. I must have gotten a bad bottle last time, it was metallic and all-round terrible. This time, I found a rather pleasant, not overpowering Pale ale. Good hop aroma and flavor, good balance.

Definitely the worst from Samuel Adams - it even looks watery - little head, little taste, little body - Sierra Nevada blows this out of the water. Nonetheless Iíd pick it over Budmilloors, but not much else.

What an impressive brew by Samuel Adams. Had this at the Mets vs Braves game last night and what a perfect combination. Itís very refreshing and evenness of the hop flavor was a nice surprise as well. Itís really great as far as a pale ales concerned.

This was definitely not the best by Sam Adams. It does have a hoppy flavor but it is far to weak, and dies very quickly. Donít get me wrong though. I liked this beer. Itís just one of those beers that, well, my girlfriend likes, which Iím sorry to say, doesnít say much for the beer. You should try this even once though if you like American style Pale aleís.
