left over from last month; not sure why i didnt rate it...
pours a typical sam adams- plain, un-spectacular. no real head to speak of. expecting relatively sub-par taste and the usual same malts and hops as all the rest of their line-up...
smell is caramel-y, pumpkin-y.
taste is . . . . decent. 5.3% abv is almost noticeable even though it isnt warm yet. quite strange, i think.
i like decent beer. i appreciate the effort a brewer gives. i understand not all experimental batches go to production. but it seems sam adams will produce anything with (almost) the same old types of ingredients and it all pretty much tastes the same. i keep trying different beers to find that one that isnt (so far) but it really is the same stuff. but i suppose it's drinkable, and that's a good thing. jus not something i would bring to a gathering of friends....
