Lets see here. I have a lot of memories of this one too, and as a lager this one sticks out in my head because its so good. I love samuel adams because i am not really a craft person, and never will be. Typically i like light lagers more because they are sort of sweet. Anyway. This is a stronger beer that i enjoy. It is really full flavored. I really can't describe the flavor of beer. Its too unique. All i can say is if you want to know what a beer is really like try it for yourself. Based on what people had told me about bud light before i tried it i thought it would be bad. But i kind of like it now. It was the same thing with Miller high life. People told me it was no good and then i try it and like it. Don't pay attention to these reviews thinking they are going to have the same results for you. Where one person will think Founders all day IPA is better than everything one person will say Its horrible and they don't like it. Everyone's palate isn't the same. Just try beers with an open mind. This is probably one of my favorites. Good quality.

I tried this once during my "discovering IPA's" phase and overlooked it.

I just came back to it. My, what a beautiful, well-rounded smooth beer it is.

You can't go wrong with it. The perfect gateway into craft beer.
Maltiness, depth, flavor, smoothness, but still just enough hop bitterness.

It's the most recognizable craft beer at the supermarket and rightly so.
Cheers

Refreshing tang; and just enough alchohol for a mild attitude enhancement without the knock-down of more alcoholic beers. My go-to brew, I allow myself one or two per evening.
