12 oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a nice medium head. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet, with hint of malt and hops. Initial tasting didn’t taste much different than an average lager. However, the complexity of this beer does come out. Starts slightly sweet, but there is a noticeable amount of hops, which lends to a nice bitterness. This brew stands out from other lagers, and in a positive way. CIPS514 (77) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2007
For a domestic beer it is very enjoyable. Sam Adams is usually good for exceptional beer except for the Double Bock. I drank this straight from the bottle in Helen, GA. I wasn’t a fan at first but the taste sort of grew on me. joesf35 (77) - Margate, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Prefect balance of hops and malt and excellent malt profile. Caramel and biscuit coffee out in the malt. Clean lager finish and nice carbonation. The mouth feel is a little dry and sudzy,, the only down side. sneakychi (77) - SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2013
Quite nice! Some butterscotch and maltyness in aroma. Small sweetness and light bitterness to finish up. Ironicmedic (77) - New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2014
Drank from bottle. Nice crisp lager with a pale head. Amber color. Had it before but never rated it. Is a easy go to lager when out at a place with limited beer option.

Pours a dark copper or amber, depends on how you look at it. Has a medium bodied head. Smells of your typical Malts. has a sweet full bodied taste thats not too overpowering. Not really that memorable. chadcs (76) - Westminster, South Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Bottle - Slight aroma but not remarkable. Large head with the Light amber color to the beer. Was a bit bitter and acidic, did not suit me to well. As much as I wanted to actually like this beer it just doesn’t do it for me. MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - APR 28, 2005
Nice amber color, hoppy aroma and a sweet caramel flavor make this one of my favorite beers by Sam. Thick offwhite head and stick to the glass foam that always beckons for another. fatguys (76) - Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Pours a lighter amber/dark hone. Nice cream-colored head. Initial taste of mikld hops with a caramel finish. Hoppier than I remember. A nice nutty smell as well.
Always a good alternative on draft when there’s no other micro or craft brewers available.
This beer does a lot by introducing something decent to the masses.
