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.
