Finally got around to trying this beer last night at a local pub in Georgetown. (As an aside, Georgetown seems to be Sam Adam's country - I noticed at least three bars that had it as it's "featured" beer.)
Loved this brew! What a nice surprise. Maybe it's my native Bostonian bias, but I think the is an excellent beer. Smell was warm and inviting. Taste was sweet and smooth. Detected a slight caramel flavor, and lots of fresh hops coming through. Nice clean taste with full carbonation throughout. Great color too.. reddish brown, with a perfect cream head.
I'm not sure why I waited so long to try this beer. I guess since it's usually featured with traditional BCM, I figured it tasted similar. It's like a cross between a great marco (if there is such a thing) and an organic Pale Ale. Now I feel as though I have a tasty, solid option when I can't enjoy find any micro's available on a night out with friends. Definitely lives up to it's reputation as an "American world class beer." And certainly one that I would keep on hand on a regular basis.

330ml bottle. Stange glass @ L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Amber color, crystal clear appearance. White froth, thin but lively crown. Crystal malt, lager yeast, floral aromas & resinous hues. Toasted flavor & arising bitterness at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Clean bitterness & dried mouthfeel rounded by spicy touch. Subtle honey & lemon-tea hints linger into a long bitter finish. Mild toasted notes on the aftertaste. Refreshing & easy drinkable !!
