3.9/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into the official Sam Adams drinking glass.

Appearance: Pours a wonderful golden amber with a white, fluffy head. The head started about two fingers tall, and then dissipated, leaving behind semi-strong lacing on the edge of the glassware. Overall, a very nice looking lager.

Smell: Nothing too strong here. There is a faint touch of malts to be found, along with a wheat nose.

Taste: Starts off bitter, surprisingly, with a background of grapefruit. It quickly gives way to the sweeter malts, which have a biscuit-style flair to them. The finish is crisp, and leaves no discernible aftertaste. This lager has some character, and fulfills my desire to have a tasty, yet simple beverage.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is light and carbonated, and quite crisp.

Drinkability: Given the simple, yet subtle nature of this brew, it is quite easy to drink. I could easily see making this a session beer, if I ever saw it on tap anywhere.

Overall, a good entry in the lager category, a genre that needs more unique and compelling beers.

3.83/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Deep amber color; translucent. Large 3 finger cream-colored head when poured; dies down quickly leaving an uneven layer of foam on the surface of the beer. Lots of medium bubbles.

Smell - Interesting very malty aroma. Slightly nutty.

Taste - Begins with a very nice malty flavor, followed by a smooth medium hoppy flavor with a mildly dry finish. Nice and refreshing. Full flavored for a lager.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation, somewhat effervescent. Nice.

Overall - Very nice lager, flavorful. I enjoyed it and would gladly have another. While it did not blow me away, it was a very solid basic craft beer.
