on tap in a nice frosty glass this was a pretty nice lager beer. all around with a nice grain taste. out of the bottle it wasnt that good. not the best lager in the world but at a bar its not bad. TheBeerMaster (100) - Little Falls, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Great head (I know, I know, that’s what she said) with this one, which lasts surprisingly long and even shoots out of the bottle a little. Sweetness to the taste that’s inviting, great when it’s ice cold. Overall, a great Sam Adams. popdoggy (100) - USA - DEC 24, 2007
This beer always screams .... "you don’t have to drink swill tonight"... I am always relieved when I see this beer at a bar. ... at least i can stomach something.

"nice good overall session brew and starter brew. A huge step above standard macros (bud/coors/etc) but pretty much average for micro. Good full flavor for a lager- malt sweetness balanced nicely by hop bitterness. slightly sour near the end. good deep hue and decent head. pretty easy to drink. close to being a pale ale."

Hoppiness is pervasive but it has a fairly thick mouthfeel. It never feels just right when drinking. Always a bit hop-forward at first, then a bit malt heavy, then overly hoppy at the finish again. Aroma is better than any domestic option at the bar, and that’s how I feel about this lager. Clearly above all other choices at most basic beer establishments. I choose it by process of elimination of the standard fizz junk. But not one for which I make a specific purchase.

Great carmely lager with a penuty taste to it. Medium body and color. Great before a meal. Slovak34 (99) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2002
If you want to try a good lager, buy a Yuengling. Don't waste your money on this. DougiePhiTau (99) - USA - APR 4, 2005
my dads favorit beer... i found it to be very hoppy and somewhat bitter but has a nice taste... little bit sweet but overall a average beer for its price and class darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2005
This is a good lager. Had it in a bottle. Good palate and mouthfeel. Nice bitterness on the finish. Nice and hoppy. sisyphus12 (99) - Belmont, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2006
not bad. Fresh full aroma that gives way to a smooth and wheat like initial flavor. finish is a bit harsh but an excellent substitute to the normal price equivilants.
