12oz bottle. Pours a clear ruby red (duh) and has a thin head of tiny white bubbles interspersed with larger thicker clumps of foam. Aroma is mildly sweet and a little earthy. Clean malts are very enticing. Sweet rich malts up-front with a nice clean finish. Surprisingly good. It is hard to deny the ability of Sam Adams to make a good beer.

12 oz bottle- Pours clear ruby red with a one finger head that slowly reduces. Aroma is grains, malt, some caramel, sweet. The taste is sweet malt, grainy, light and sessionable. Body is medium light and carbonation is medium high. This isn’t bad, nothing I’d ever want to buy again, but not bad. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Malty with nuts and granita, and just a little bit of citrus. Very good.

Aroma is a pretty bland malt. Taste has some sweet malts, but nothing really hits you. Overall just an OK beer. jgb9348 (6252) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Caramel coloured body with a rich ruby glow and a thick, four centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pale malt, bread, caramel, cardboard and toffee - not too great. Medium-bodied; Earthy flavour with some light nuts, cashews, caramel and a bit of yeast tucked in. Aftertaste shows some subdued sweetness from caramel and toffee, a little grape flavours and bunches of malt and nuts that really come out near the end. Overall, a decent beer, but perhaps too much subdued flavours and not enough pungency across the board. Decent to sample however and a style that I sampled more of. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Costco (Pentagon City) in Arlington, Virginia on 20-October-2013 for US$25.99/24 pack sampled at home in Washington on 10-December-2013.

I was neither impressed or unimpressed with this beer. Nothing special at all. I’d rather drink a number of other Sam Adams beers instead. ROBC3366 (148) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Pours a dark golden brown with some red and a white head. Smells malty and of raisins and tastes of nutty caramel and some fruit

pours a clear copper-red with a small light tan head and a little lacing.
smell is of malt and floral.
taste is a little tangy, malt, a few hops, and some roastiness. ends a little on the dry side.
