Sam Adam's west, really the best way I can think to describe it. It's definitely a solid, all-around lager, but nothing really insanely different or artistic about it; a real, "meat-and-potatoes" kind of brew.
It's appearance is a dark amber with a moderate head that stays around for awhile. The smell is very malty (biscuit is a strong note) with a slight floral aroma (much less hoppy than say a Sam Adams). It's a pretty thick beer with solid mouth-feel and it goes down quite well.
Like I said, overall, not too bad. I used to disdain this beer, but it's grown on me, especially since I'm finding it more and more in places that don't serve a lot of craft beer (great alternative to your Miller Lite crap), but then again, Sam was the same way with me.

Produced a one finger cream head, which quickly dissipated, and left no lacing.
Beer color is a translucent medium copper.
The smell is of caramel, malt, and a hint of chocolate.
The taste is similar, but with a slight hop bitterness, and a little citrus. Low-medium mouth-feel, and medium carbonation.
Decent beer. Easy drinking, and is available at some non-beer bar places, which makes it a, better than BMC, go to.
Serving type: can
