Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a deep copper color with a large white head. Excellent retention and lacing. Smell is very subtly spicy in its character. There is a slight citrus and a very faint alcohol aroma as well. Taste has typical lager characteristics, the spiciness comes through right away along with a slight sweetness and the beer is balanced with a nice bite towards the finish. High carbonation, medium body, and watery mouthfeel. This beer is slightly above average. Similar in flavor to Boston Lager with more spice character. To me there is definitely an off flavor present in this beer that leads to an almost stale character. Not my favorite Sam Adams by far, but decent for the style they were going for.
