3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My least favorite beer from Samuel Adams. Very boring. I was expecting a better color, less like the mass-produced lagers of St. Louis and Milwaukee. The aroma was fresh and not to hoppy or malty. Overall, I just think the beer didn't distinguish itself, especially considering how much I admire other Samuel Adams offerings.

An oversweet caramel spread ends in a dry crême brulée finish...Hops are very shy, and thus disappoint a bit..

I really enjoyed this beer. Great appearance, nice pour and great taste. My only complaint was that it didn't finish too well. Excellent (except for the last swig).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of peach. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. One of Boston Beer's more drinkable products.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium copper-red color with a white head. Mild aroma is of malt and somewhat bready. Flavor is mild, smooth, and well balanced, with the malt present but not overdone. Finish is similar, clean and somewhat dry. Medium body suits the flavor well.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very pretty looking, not much else though. Little in the way of backbone and flavor is lacking. Clean finish, but hardly a robust flavor.

An average beer. It has an inticing aroma, but sadly, it possesses no decent follow-up. overall the beer is watery, and I wouldnt try it it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium golden brown hue. Smooth, malty aroma with a hint of sour fruit. A suprisingly roasted taste, with a few flavors mixed in: walnuts, licorice, Not what I was expecting.
