a very good beer at a great price. found at 599 a sixer. head goes away rather quick but the lacing is perfect in a glass. i was pleasantly suprised at how good this beer was.. barleynhops (82) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle: I must have had this beer hundreds of times, but it keeps getting better everytime. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Very unique hops and malts creates an excellent character and taste. A definite session brew for ages to come. EricTheRed (82) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2003
so overall average. had this on draft, and it's fine, if uninspiring. good color, and head and a fine taste

This is better than I thought. A pretty notable hop profile for a lager. Floral, pine and citrus hops. A nice malt backing with candy sugar sweetness. This is actually a very enjoyable beer, considering it’s a macro-breweries main offering. labattslover74 (82) - Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2017
I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. Not really a craft beer, but a step above a basic beer.
Very good blend of hops and malt.
Not to hoppy, but not bland like your basic lager or pilsner.
I usually drink their craft beers but when you buy the sample packs a couple of their original flavor is in there, and I don't share or throw away a good beer.

Cerveja bem equilibrada. Embora nao seja meu estilo preferido, apresenta carbonatação adequada e flavour complexo. Apresenta caracteristicas de uma porter, com lupulagem destacada. viet959 (81) - , Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2009 Has very nice caramel malt and hops balance. Extremely drinkable and at a very reasonable price while easily available. Danny1217 (81) - Miami, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Simple, but good. The way lagers should be made. All other big American breweries should take note. Samuel Adams also pairs exceptionally well with food. lipscomb216 (80) - USA - SEP 9, 2006
Used to be my beer of choice, once I had graduated from Corona. Smooth going down, with a much cleaner taste than other more mass distributed beers. Samuel Jackson beer! It’ll get you drunk!!!! gjamieson (80) - Canton, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2003
A good quality macrobrew: fresh hop aroma, good malty flavor, and a clean finish. A very drinkable brew. If you're going to buy a massed-produced beer, Sam Adams seems to be the source for good quality brews.
