This rich and malty ale originated in Ireland in 1710. It has a deep red color and distinctive caramel flavor from its Pale and Caramel malts. The malt sweetness is balanced by the earthy notes of East Kent Goldings hops. Cheers!

A beautiful beer that doesnt quite live up. Pours a deep red with a thick tan head. Aroma is malty, flowery, and sweet. The flavor is fairly well balanced. Lots of carbonated sweet goodness up front is backed by a hoppy bitterness. There is a slight aftertaste. A good beer...a half decent Sam Adams is a lot better than some brewers best.

Samuel adams all have a very distinct flavor, and if ur a fan of that flavor, then you are bound to be a fan of most sams. This one is tasty and simple. pretty much what i expected. nice frothy head that lasts a while. malty and tart, good looking dark color. tartness lingers on the finish. Cant really go wrong.

(12oz bottle) AROMA: sweet corn/malt, fruit/pineapple, tobacco. APPEARANCE: reddish Amber, textured brown foam, clear, good carbonation, nice looking beer. TASTE: rich malt, molasses, solid ale notes, coffee grounds, dark green grass. PALATE: medium body, crisp upfront, water-focused feeling, bitter. OVERALL: solid red ale, sweet (and a little sour) malt focus, but with a nice amount of hoppy bitter followthru, not overly heavy but filling.

Pours a finger of head on a clear dark straw body. Aroma is caramel and dark malt... but a little off. Taste is malty sweet, almost no bitter. Easy. Texture is smooth.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear reddish color with a medium tan head. A light malty caramel nose. The favor is caramel, toast, light floral hops, some sweeter maltier elements. Pretty nice for what it is. Clean. A bit of a spicy finish.
