Not a bad ale, but quite uneventful. Copper, with nice head, decent lacing - slight hops and malts - minor sweetness - easy drinking, with a subtle yeastiness. Not bad, I guess. jjw2000 (72) - USA - APR 22, 2003
Nice amber color with white foamy head. Aroma is rich/full. Flavor is very smooth with a medium body. Fairly
sweet with mild malt flavors and hints of fruit. Bitter finish. Ni209 (67) - Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2003
about as good as Sam Adams gets. very smotth, and i suspect its much better on draft. the aftertaste was odd, and i couldn't put my finger on it but something said...pancakes. Momma? JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Amber color with a foamy white head. Aroma has a hint of malt and hops. Flavor is smooth, malty with a touch of sweetness and a hint of hoppy bitterness at the finish. Palate is a little thin. Nothing great, but not bad either. cornhusker01 (76) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 14, 2003
It went down well and had the same grain essence as fresh bread. It had a semi-sweet flavor and finished a little bitter. A good ale.

Only slightly heavier than their Boston lager this ale is drinkable and easier to find than most ales. LarsHolmer (113) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2003
Amber to copper gives you a beautiful glass of a fruity ale with a dark-yellowish top. Plums, raisins in the aroma and a sweet toffee in the palate, that ends with a certain bitterness. Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2003
This is a good all around no nonsense beer. It's smooth and easy to drink. Nothing special, but it's readily available and it's a decent brew. clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 4, 2003
I expected more from this beer, but it still did not let me down. I notice that this is a beer that is much better of tap than from the bottle. Somewhat hoppy and smooth to drink, but I prefer others for an Ale. koatis (50) - Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2003
This is perhaps the best offering by the Boston Beer Company. A bit heavier than your average American ale. Creamy and slightly hoppy. A unique and fairly memorable ale.
