One of Sam Adams best beers - in my opinion. It's certainly better than the Boston Lager (which isn't bad) so I look forward to this beer being placed on tap in early Autumn every year.
This beer pours a gorgeous golden brown and amber red. It has a nice head, good lacing and a good body. It smells like an amber but with a tinge of spice on top and it tastes like that too: crisp, clean, balanced with a nice malty spine. The spices on top give it its character.
Is this the best beer from the Boston Beer Company? No, definitely not. But I promise you it's the best one you can buy in a bottle at your local gas station.

A--Dark reddish brown in color. Tan head disappears quickly. Transparent.
S--Not a lot on the nose. Trace of malts mostly. Simple and enjoyable.
T--Very malt forward, rich with a caramel taste. A bit of spice at the end that's pretty dang good as well.
M--Medium weight, but drinks almost like a light lager. Goes down pretty easy. Just a bit of carbonation.
O--In my mind this is one of Sam Adams best beers. I look forward to it and I'll certainly have a few more this fall.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottle best by January 2015
