A very average, yet very tasty beer from Sam Adams. Pours a deep amber almost garnet color. Little puffy cloud head, which dissipates quickly. Almost has an earth quality, some oak, toasted smoke flavors. Very good malt character. Finish is slightly watery.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2002
The beer pours a limpid deep copper color, the head massive, but desiccates quickly, leaving a fine sheet of lace, both light tan in color. Malts dominate the nose, but clean and fresh nonetheless. Front has light sweet malt taste, the top middling. This beer finishes with a gratifying hopped presence and is charmingly acidic with a droughty aftertaste. Quite a pleasant drinking beer as “Lagers/Pils”, as my past ranting and ravings has shown are not my favorite style, but I like this one. Ranks #686 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Indra (2594) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 17, 2003
Bready, caramel malt aroma, a bit on the faint side. Light to medium amber in color, very clear and effervescent. Malty flavor profile, with caramel/toffee sweetness, toasty breadiness and a hint of nut. Just a little hop taste and bitterness show up for the finish, which is crisp and drying. I got pretty much what I was expecting to out of this beer.

Bottle. Some bready malts and caramels make this beer slightly interesting.

PhillyBeer2112 (2517) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Blood red & amber colored, with a large foamy off-white head. Light caramel aroma. Clean caramel flavor, generally light malt profile. Smooth and drinkable at best, underdone at worst.

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Medium sized tan head, good retention and lace. Clear amber color. Malty, grainy nose with hints of berries. Medium body. Medium sweet malt flavors, grainyness. Finish is medium sweet. A mediocre beer.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 28, 2002
Bright amber body topped with a thick creamy head leaving plenty of lace. Sweet amlty aroma with slight fruity notes and a touch of sourness. Sweet malt flavor well balanced with hoppiness and a touch of sourness in the finish. Smooth and refreshing, slightly oily.

TAR (2445) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2004 Clear maple. Silky dusty-white foam. Rooty aroma with perfume and leathery notes. Fruity undertones with traces of diacetyl and nuts. Velvety carbonation. Starts vaguely acidic. Flavors of dark berries and leather. Finishes with a lightly burnt, dark candied malt backdrop alongside notes of melon, caramel, and plum. Traces of diacetyl, here and there, which enhance the malt and fruit characteristics. Very balanced and flavorul. Decent.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Sweet malty aroma from a slightly cloudy amber brown body. Palate was just o.k. - could've been thicker and maltier. Taste was mostly sweet caramels and slight hop at the end. Just o.k.

MadIndian (2348) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2006
Pours a dark Amber, nice taste. Good malty flavor. It finishes a little weak for my taste but not a bad brew. A slight smokey taste can be found.
