Good ale, little low on the ABV but an easy drink. jgb9348 (6250) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2003
Great brown colour, fantastic smell...almost a sweet vanilla smell! Another Sam Adams winner! mwesth (279) - Skovlunde, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2003
Nice refreshing ale, a bit weak in taste and mouthfeel for my taste. booyaatribe (450) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2002
Blah. Why does Sam Adams always have a weird "freezer taste"? Jfishback13 (273) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2002
This is a decent, not as run-of-the-mill as macrobrews, but not distinctive enough to go for again kinda beer.

Cinema style popcorn malt and decent hop edges. Up here we drink a fair amount of this because, well, there isn’t much else readily available. Rib Eye (148) - USA - DEC 18, 2002
Rerate12/18/02: As with many Sam Adams beers lately I’m detecting an unpleasnt yeast aftertaste in many of their beers. What gives?
A fine, if thoroughly unremarkable APA. Drinks smoothly and is refreshing enough. Could be a bit more dramatic, but as with most S.A. beers, the edges have been sanded off. Wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt. khayman70 (153) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2002
Great amber color. The mouthfeel is slightly lighter than Boston Lager. I tasted the old fashioned baking apples in the finish. Not too bad at all. HarmonKill-a-Brew (407) - Wilmar, Arkansas, USA - DEC 12, 2002
Simular to the Boston Lager... lighter flavor but a thicker mouthfeel. I love this stuff. I really enjoy most of the Sam Adams beers. DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 11, 2002
Draught: Copper with a thin head..malty sweet aroma..
Granny smith apples oozing with carmel secretions..Sweet but puckery..morphing into red delicious apples with the slightest of hop bitterness..Good but nothing spectacular
