Wow. Had this last night on tap, shortly after polishing off a Newcastle. Amazing how much more flavor this old favorite has. I swear, if i hadn't known better i would have thought they were serving me some new American pale ale. Compared to a Newcastle, this is a regular hop bomb (of course, Newcastle isn't supposed to be hoppy, it's just interesting to note how much more the hops jump out at you when it follows something like an English brown).

Man it really hit the spot. As always, i thank God for Sam Adams, sometimes the only beer many places have other than BMC. There is simply no comparison. SA has come to my rescue many times, and i look forward to future rescue operations. Yum.
