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. Neematoad (76) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2008
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. Jmacatiag (76) - , California, USA - JUL 14, 2010
It pours in a dark amber color with a nice lacy white head and has a sweet aroma but it was hard to smell it over the rest of the food around me. BWW isn’t the best place to judge a brew but it had to do. The flavor was pretty nicely balanced as the bitterness of the hops was sort of offset by the sweet malts. Overall it’s a very simple beer. There’s nothing that’ll surprise you or really impress you. This is one of the better of what I call the regular brews which are the ones you see regularly at supermarkets or restaurants. It’s not disappointing but it doesn’t really shine either. Drink if you like but you aren’t missing out on anything special. fauxpunker (76) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle, tap. Nice coppery color. Not much head. Can smell the hops, though not overpowering. The hops do show through in the flavor as well giving the beer a nice touch of bitterness and leaving you knowing you drank something more than water with yellow food coloring added. guzzler (76) - AE, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2002
Not bad but too hoppy for my taste..........................................

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. 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. shanereid (75) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Bottle: Has an amber colour. Aroma is bready. A nice domestic premium lager, but aftertaste left something for me to desire. braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Boring yet not gross. Part of me would take a PBR any day to this stuff but if you have been handed one you can’t really object. Mostly malt with some fruit or other "outside" favors detectable. Would never purchase of my own accord. twistedviews (75) - California, USA - AUG 5, 2009
