smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Dark amber/light brown color. Moderately hazy. Although the head is modest, it does leave ample blanket lace on the glass Earthy, dry malt aroma. Very faint hop nose. Better hop presence in the taste. The malt is still the stronger flavor, still earthy. The aftertaste is well balanced, but short lived. The body is richer than most with a slightly higher level of carbonation.

Sweet tart malt aroma. Hazy red amber color. Bubbly persistent head about 2 inches tall and no sign of backing down soon. Flat caramel malt with a sour tart feel on the tongue.

slowrunner77 (12844) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
"a simple beer that ends up pretty boring, though it’s got a decent rich malty aroma going on. little hop presence, though, so little balance. this feel, lack of follow through on the flavor. eh."

I can see why this is Boston Beer Works flagship. Was surprised to find that it is only 5% abv. The malt is butterscotchy. The finish is smooth.

Draft sampler pours amber with a off white head . Aroma of sweet malts and spice. Taste is malty, and grass
