I usually scoff at this company because there "pseudo craft" stylings can’t compare to other mainstream craft breweries like Sierra Nevada or Rogue etc...To be honest, I think most of Sam Adams repertoire is slightly worse than average with a couple of exceptions, notably the new Imperial Pilsner, which I consider to be a freak anamoly from this company...In fact, I am quite certain that Sam Adams’ executives will decide that the Imperial Pilsner offering (while, in this progressive beer drinking society, makes some sense on paper, and is exceptionally satifying on the palate by any standard measure of beer drinking) is too good for their "teetering around mediocrity beer that’s guzzled by people who think that they are drinking something sophisticated" type image... and furthermore, that if the "average" Samuel buyer wants beer this good they should seek accomodations elsewhere. Also, I am investigating the possibility that some other, better company with a higher standard of what constitutes great taste and outstanding craft has brewed the Imperial Pilsner FOR Samuel and Sam has just stuck their "I have just stepped off the fucking Mayflower" logo on it...Fucking-A...Proxy brewing motherfuckers...he should just drown himself in that vat of stale swill that he sits in on the television commercials...maybe then when he ascends to heaven he will be able to see what a real beer is supposed to taste like...cause in heaven the lands are filled with premium IPA’s from brewers like Stone, Ale Smith, and Smuttynose...the river’s flow with belgian ales...and in the darkness of night THE STOUTS OF UNDERWORLD RISE...people piss Boston Lager and watch it stagnate into Cherry Wheat...Now with that said...I will drink this beer if the only other options are Bud and Coors...

Light amber to deep gold color with an off-white head of sudsy foam. Gain caramel and roasted grain set to the light easygoing nature of a lager. One of the first classical sesh craft beers. omikr0n (922) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 20, 2017

Copper color, with medium/thick pillowy head. Aroma/Taste: Roasted malts, mild hops, almonds, chestnuts and toffee. Thick and chewy on the palate. The perfect transition beer to wean off macro lagers.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2017 Wanted to try this popular beer. Had it after volleyball today. Definitely better than average. Had another after baseball last night (3.5). ginotarugo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Big, long-lasting, white head. Aroma did not entice. Flavor strong malt, not as smooth as I was hoping. I was thirsty when I drank this but the flavor did make me want another one. pachecoweld (10) - California, USA - MAY 15, 2017
This is my go to when at a restaurant that doesn’t have much to choose from and only offers macros. Has a nice rich roasty malt then to a light floral, then finishes with caramel. Very nice balanced beer, I feel like it’s much richer than your typical lager, not that it’s a bad thing but a bit unexpected on the first big sip. Always a safe bet when on sale at the store or when typical macros are only available. tntracey (65) - - MAY 14, 2017
Reluctantly ordered this beer on a flight from Barcelona to Philadelphia. Was surprised by its pleasing aroma, appearance, aroma and taste. Good lager, no complaints.
