Always good. Very consistent. Very available. The beer is good the mass production with availability EVERYWHERE to me loses it's luster!!!

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.
