bottle. Golden with small head. Mild body with pretty weak English hops. I’m not particularly impressed. A bit below average.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Modest head that dies to nearly no bubbles. Initially light lace, then none. Dark gold color with a touch of green; slight haze. Pleasant floral hop aroma; Closer to the British style in the malt flavor. Slightly tart and quite dry. The hop finish is brief and not very pronounced. Good body with a high carbonation level.

A-yellow, clear, head has sudsy white head that disappears quickly A-bready malt, and faint grassy hop aroma T-light malt, again bread and grass is the most I can really get out of this. P-thin,crisp body. I keep double checking bottle for lager O-A great introduction beer, never revisit after that, very blah.

Bottle. Pours gold with a small white head. Malt and toasted grain aroma with a touch of fruit and florals. Caramel and light grain flavor with a touch of fruity and floral hops. Dry and only slightly bitter finish. Flavor mostly dominated by the malts.

Sam Adams Pale Ale is probably one of their more bitter beers but it still has that delicious full body taste and smooth texture that Sam Adams is know for. I should mention that even though it does have that bitter taste, the bitterness still doesn’t compare to that of say Stone’s IPA. I would call this a good bar beer to have 1 or 2 of.

NeoHippie2 (991) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Not a bad pale ale. I’d say this one would be a good session brew for sure. Little bit hard to find however. Pours a hazy amber with a white head, Notes of malt and hops on the nose. Well balanced mouth feel. Would pair well with food.

illidurit (2146) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Backlog purge. Bottle poured into a pint glass. Dim gold with white head. Very English with appley Fuggles and earthy Kent goldings, muddled tea-like maltiness, unfulfilling body.

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Yellow almost gold pour with white head. Light perfumy hops with a wet dog like odor. Dry hay like maltiness with a perfumy hops bitter. Medium light bodied with aggressive carbonation.
