Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Malty with nuts and granita, and just a little bit of citrus. Very good.

Aroma is a pretty bland malt. Taste has some sweet malts, but nothing really hits you. Overall just an OK beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel coloured body with a rich ruby glow and a thick, four centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pale malt, bread, caramel, cardboard and toffee - not too great. Medium-bodied; Earthy flavour with some light nuts, cashews, caramel and a bit of yeast tucked in. Aftertaste shows some subdued sweetness from caramel and toffee, a little grape flavours and bunches of malt and nuts that really come out near the end. Overall, a decent beer, but perhaps too much subdued flavours and not enough pungency across the board. Decent to sample however and a style that I sampled more of. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Costco (Pentagon City) in Arlington, Virginia on 20-October-2013 for US$25.99/24 pack sampled at home in Washington on 10-December-2013.

I was neither impressed or unimpressed with this beer. Nothing special at all. I’d rather drink a number of other Sam Adams beers instead.

pours a clear copper-red with a small light tan head and a little lacing.
smell is of malt and floral.
taste is a little tangy, malt, a few hops, and some roastiness. ends a little on the dry side.

From a bottle. Pours medium brown with a red tint and a thick frothy beige head and lots of lacing. Taste malty, smooth, with hints of grapefruit, nuts, and grains. Bready but very light. Low/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like light malt and grapefruit citrus.

Bottle. Pours a red amber. Small white head. Sweet aroma. Flavor of malt, caramel, and toast, but all very mild. Refreshing and very drinkable. Overall this is nice, but not remarkable on any level.
