True to its name in color , clear with a fair off white collection of ringside bubbles on top. Lacing is decent as well, somewhat if a scattered marbled look. The taste is a funky skunk malt with a bit of spicy herbal hop bitterness. There's a fermented fruit suggestion in there but overall it's just a good old German brew with a little bite that goes down easy but not entirely quietly. The feel is of a subtle but certain brisk tang for the tip of you tongue on a medium- light bodied brew. Very nice and an understandable flagship.

22 ounce bomber -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint Glass

A - Stunningly beautiful. Lucious copper appearance with nice beige head, world class, retention, world class lacing.

S - The nose is kind of weak. I mostly got the smell of grasses.

T - a little smoky, a little rye, kind of a wonderful under control bitter grassy finish.

M - very pleasing with good carbonation.

O - I figured I would like this, but I had no idea I'd like it as much as I did. Awesome stuff.
