Back when this first came out and it was the yuppie beer of choice as a psuedo micro I never could figure out why. It must have been the limited choices. To me this is an overrated lager just a step above the macros. If I drink anything from Sams it is likely a seasonal or the ale. travismills (37) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2004
I am enjoying this as I type, a nice sweet smell and a good unique taste. Overall, always a wise decision jtw (1170) - farmington, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2004
decent aroma of caramel malt and light european hops. better-than-average lager appearance, nice amber. very drinkable, very caramely and a little bitterness mixed in. SkyinBrian (430) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2004
this is a decent beer. carmel. actually some bitterness. went well with my burger and the scenery at hooters. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Amber color...malty floral aroma...malty flavor witha little caramel and then a bitterness...not disgusting...

Can’t believe it’s taken me this long to try Sam Adams. Had on tap. I find it to be quite good. Good malt character, spicy and slightly caramel malt, and a bit pale hops on the finish. The mouth feel it right, yet not watery like macro crap. I’m impressed. Add it to the SNPA/Fat Tire widely availible beer on tap. hayduke (5730) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 4, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Bottle. Copper color with malt flavor. A touch sweet, with mild hops. A decent beer.
Re-reviewed while in Boston ... on draft. Better than when reviewed long ago in bottle. run20six2 (123) - USA - AUG 3, 2004
A very good tasting beer. A little dark but not overly powerful. Quite tasty. Nice finish as well. Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2010 Pours a clear dark gold/amber with a nice frothy head. Smells sweet and woody. Starts off sweet with caramel then tastes grassy but is nice and refreshing. Leaves a alcohol/bitter taste on the tip of my tongue. Has a medium slightly bitter finish. Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2004 Copper color, caramel malty aroma and taste, light body, light bitter fruity finish.
Re-rated thise one after trying it again at Plan B CPH. DK. it was better than I remember.
