As far as Sam Adams beers go this is not my favorite but again it is a good beer. Theres just something about the way they brew their beer that gets you really nicely buzzed. If you like lagers then this is the way to go if youre in a supermarket. In a small liqour store you might a bit more selection depending on the season. For the SA's that are year round this is an overall good one if you prefer lagers like myself. If youre into ales theres always the Boston Ale but thats another review.

Large fluffy head with good lacing. The head sticks around for a long time. Beautiful light copper colored beer. Very clear. Moderate carbonation with large bubbles.
Hops are dominant. Some malt sweetness in the background.
Tastes like it smells, but with a slightly harsh bitterness to the finish. There is just something about the flavor profile that I don't like. It is too harsh for the style. It tastes like the ingredients are good quality. It just comes across as unpleasantly harsh on the finish.
Medium bodied. Good mouthfeel, but that weird lingering harshness detracts from the experience.
This is a pretty good beer that for some reason just doesn't sit right with my palate.
