This is my go-to "table beer". Very well done, very consistent, a complex European flavor to the lager, with a nice balance of flavors with no off tastes.

It was at a micro-brew beer fest when I realized just how much I liked this beer. After trying 20 to 40 other beers, I found this to have the most refined flavor.

Not sure why, but I've found the bottle beer to be often better than the tap beer. This is the only beer I've found this to be the case (prefer bottle over tap). Often find some off flavors with the Sams Lager on tap.

Serving type: bottle
